About the
Port of Galway

The Port of Galway is situated at the centre of Galway City. It has a history dating back to the 10th century, serving the city and region. The Port Company set out to develop a new Port for Galway, allowing larger ships to moor alongside this new infrastructure and by doing so, remove the commercial shipping and its associated activities out of the existing “gated” harbour.
