The commanding building on the banks of the Corrib, which houses the Bridge Mills, is one of Galways landmarks. Restored a few years ago with due regard for its aesthetic and historical features, the 430 year old Bridge Mills is now a centre of art, culture and specialised skill-based commercial projects. Visitors and locals alike delight in the distinctive, finely crafted gifts, clothing, cuisine, on offer. The art gallery and language school and beautiful surroundings, both natural and designed from the human mind appeal greatly to the aesthetic and educational needs to all visitors.
The several outlets there specialise in a range of quality goods such as antiques, eastern quality goods at affordable prices, floral and other unusual craft gifts, natural enviromentally careful products for the home, classroom and garden, and an art gallery.
