Cross Street in Galway is a charming street with craft shops, restaurants, pubs and antiques. In this view Quay Street is straight ahead with Naughton's pub and a coffee shop in the shaded area on the right.



Playing 'The Sailors Hornpipe' You might find yourself listening Streaming Real Audio to the music of a banjo or guitar whilst you are sitting supping quietly on a pint or two of Guinness®. Wafting down the street on this particular day came these wonderful sounds from a tin whistle, playing 'The Sailors Hornpipe'.

Corner of Mainguard Street and Cross StreetLooking further ahead we see St. Patrick's school. On the corner on the right is the Dew Drop Inn which we saw on the previous page.

 

Having a pintWalking back, past the bookmaker we come to 'The Frontdoor' where the customers like to grab a chair to spot the local talent. This is a popular pastime with the male population and if you don't know the expression - grab a pint and ask them...

Continue moving past 'The Framemaker' at No. 10 until you reach the intersection to turn right into Quaystreet.
