The Spanish Arch was not part of the original city walls but was built in 1584 as a measure to protect the city’s quays. It was originally known as Ceann an Bhalla or The Head of the Wall, a fortification that extended from Martin’s Tower to the river. Then in the 18th century, the Eyre family built Long Walk as an extension of the quays and a breakwater to construct a mud berth. A number of arches were constructed to allow access from the town to the new quay but unfortunately, an earthquake that occurred in Lisbon in 1755 resulted in a tsunami that destroyed some of these arches. In olden times, ships would have moored here unloading their cargo of Spanish wines and foodstuffs such as olive oil, spices, tea, coffee, and cocoa. Later, these ships would have been replaced by Aran fishing boats unloading and selling their wares.

It is that time of year again. The Christmas season is fast approaching and with only 40 days left before the big day, the last few weeks are usually spent dashing around shops, making lists (and checking them twice), making a mess wrapping gifts, buying the most ridiculous Christmas jumpers and, most importantly, enjoying some well-deserved time off. Buying the perfect gift can be stressful, to say the least, with phones, gift vouchers, and laptops grazing the top of the list. But what do you buy someone who has everything, or someone who is not interested in the latest gadgets and gizmos? The travel specialists at 2 Bridge Street know just the thing.
