The Property

33 Shop Street is a part two/three storey landmark building extending to 1,042.9 sq m (11,226 sq ft) NIA incorporating 834.1 sq m (8,978 sq ft) of retail area over ground and first floor levels. The scale of the retail floor plates are rare in Galway with a clear absence of retail units of scale suitable for modern retailer requirements.

The property occupies a corner regular shaped site of approximately 0.14 acres with significant frontage of 17 meters to Shop Street. Church Lane abuts the building and provides servicing access which is utilised by Eason’s. 

The building is a Protected Structure dating back to approximately 1910 and is located within the City’s core Architectural Conservation Area.



Internally the retail areas are open plan and underwent refurbishment in 2013 to provide books, news and magazines at ground floor and stationery and gifts on the first floor.

An up-only escalator links the ground and first floor retail areas, which are also serviced by a stairs and customer lift. Access to the second floor stockroom/offices is also via stairs and lift.
