Four streets in Galway city are set to become pedestrianised during certain evening hours from today until October to allow for outdoor dining during the summer months.

Dominick Street Upper, William Street West and Raven Terrace will all be closed to traffic from 6pm until 11pm every day until 2 October.

Small Crane, from New Street West to William Street West, will be closed to motorists 24/7 throughout the summer.

Galway City Council introduced a similar measure last year as a result of the pandemic, and it proved hugely popular with locals and tourists, as well as the hospitality sector.

Last year’s temporary pedestrianisations did not begin until 7 June because of COVID restrictions imposed on bars and restaurants.

Localised access will be maintained at all times and Galway City Council will install diversion signage for motorists.
