A LEGACY FOR THE FUTURE

Our vision for a Port of Galway redevelopment is simple. We want to ensure that the Port remains at the heart of Galway City’s economic and social development. Our commitment is to maintain and grow the contribution we make to the local economy in terms of employment and boosting tourism numbers through hosting national and international events such as the Volvo Ocean Race.

For our proposed redevelopment we are taking INSPIRATION from our proud past, adopting INNOVATION for our present circumstances in the hope of creating a lasting LEGACY for generations to come.

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.
