This commercial premises, formerly Moons of Galway, was designed and built as a department store. Its large form and its location, close to Eyre Square, give it a landmark presence in the main shopping district of the city. Its rounded corner entrance gives it an unusual elegance and the classical detailing, most evident in the varied pilasters, makes it one of the city's most decorative structures. The varied openings and the heavy moulded eaves and cornices unify what is a very long façade.
