The lands at Nuns' Island present an opportunity to transform an underutilised parcel of land on the edge of Galway City centre. The regeneration of the lands needs careful and detailed consideration as their location directly between the City and NUI Galway easily facilitates an expansion of the University campus or an expansion of the City creating a civic space to carefully bring both City and University together.


It is proposed to develop a cohesive and achievable regeneration proposal for the area to create vibrant space through the appropriate mix of public realm spaces and habitable development. The goal, working in partnership with Galway City Council and interested stakeholders from within the community, it is proposed to establish a Masterplan that will bring wide scale benefit to the City as whole. Realising this ambition will require a collaborative approach based on detailed engagement and long term thinking.
