Directions to LightHOUSE

  • On your approach to Galway you will have a number of roundabouts to drive through. It is best to initially follow the signposts for CLIFDEN.
  • Drive over the four lane bridge called QUINCENTENNIAL BRIDGE
    (See maps).
  • You will approach traffic lights at the other end of this bridge.
  • Turn left at these traffic lights and then take the first turn left at the AIB BANK.
  • Take the first turn right after this, which will bring you into the car park next to the College Chapel.
  • Park here and walk along the road towards the modern (white) three storey building which you will find on your right. As you pass this, please proceed up the steps to your left and enter the long low building at the end of the plaza.
  • LightHOUSE is located on the ground floor of this building in the Physics Dept. There is a INFORMATION DESK at the main entrance, from where you can be directed towards NCLA. Follow signs for Applied Optics or NCLA.  Applied Optics is on the same level.  For NCLA you need to go down the stairs in the second green block and go left.
