Ireland – Galway – Browne Doorway

Located on the edge of Eyre Square is this quirky remnant of a doorway and upper window. It was once the entrance to Browne House and was built in 1627, remaining in situ until 1905. At this point the arch was moved to its current location and it’s designed to be “a reminder of Galway’s civic opulence”.

The information panel beneath the doorway. The doorway does feel a bit lost in its current location and it’s not really entirely clear to me why the city decided to move it there in the first place. However, it’s a part of Galway’s history and an interesting reminder of the buildings which once stood.
