Galway Docks

  • An Bord Plenala has given the go-ahead for a €100 million development at Galway Docks.

    Local developer Gerry Barrett can proceed with plans for a substantial office development, which will include four top-end office blocks as well as retail space and accomodation for 350 students on Queen Street, overlooking Galway Docks.

    Work on the development is expected to begin next February, and will create about 400 construction jobs.

    It's expected the office development will be of interest to foreign firms moving to Ireland because of its proximity to the shopping and entertainment areas of Galway city, as well as the availability of houses and apartments.
