Shopping Mall
“Specifically the beautiful, new 2 Wild Geese store which sells local art prints, homeware, and ceramics, all designed and created by people in the local Galway area. This store opened with the goal of giving local designers and crafts people a route to a market, and offering beautiful, locally-made products to shoppers in Galway. My new favourite shop! ”
