Neighborhood: City Centre (Galway)
Overview

Cross the Salmon Weir Bridge from the Cathedral and turn right to find the recently restored Riverside Walk. This walk runs from the Weir to Mainguard Street and can be quite invigorating early in the day, as the river becomes quite turbulent here before it meets the sea. The walk provides a great vantage point for viewing the eel boxes and anglers fishing on the river below the Salmon Weir Bridge. Folklore states this was the section of the river where Galvia (daughter of the mythic king Breasal) was drowned. This is the same Galvia who, legend has it, lent her name to the city.
