Flea Style Market
HOURS: last Sunday of the month, 1–6pm
Shopping in Ireland is a curious endeavor. On one hand, there are things you’d never buy here, given a choice: off-the-shelf alcohol and cigarettes, for example, are astonishingly expensive as labels tend to be at least as pricey as anywhere else – even supermarkets are generally expensive by European standards. That said, there are some great bargains to be had, largely in the charity shopping scene. In popular local markets and famously great vintage shops, Galway has some of its own great spots to explore. Here are our favourite flea markets and thrift stores in and around Galway.
