Galway’s City Streets & Sites
Hall of the Red Earl
Be awe-struck by the 13th century ruin of Galway’s first municipal building, erected by Richard the Red Earl of the ruling de Burgo family. The site was uncovered in the 1990s during local building works which led to the discovery of more than 11,000 artefacts including clay pipes and gold cufflinks. Marvel at the building’s foundations, replica artefacts and interpretive exhibits and gain insight into Galway’s medieval past.
