About the project

The innovative new design, coordination of street furniture, the use of high quality paving materials, and the development of spaces to fit their functions allows Eyre Square to truly reflect an image of the city appropriate to its status.

At the heart of the west of Ireland’s largest city, much of the square had fallen into disrepair, and the layout no longer maximised its potential uses. Car parking around the perimeter, and the circulation of traffic framing the square made its green centre difficult to access. A substantial change in level across the square compounded its problems. The square was redesigned with a wide arcing path traversing the space, coordinated street furniture and an integrated play area. Car parking was removed from the edges and the street on the west side of the square was pedestrianised improving pedestrian linkages. The new design increases the usable pedestrian space in the square by two-thirds. Major upgrading of the services and utilities infrastructure is contained within the project and the scheme also provides for the protection and safeguarding of the many historical and artistic artefacts in the square which are retained or relocated. The result is a successful, flexible, high quality urban space that suits Galway’s image and aspirations.
