Trivia and History
The Plaza opened on 12 February 2016. It was developed privately following delays to the National Road Authority's plans for public developments. Co. Galway is the spiritual home of Supermac's so it was an obvious place to target with a large development. TII are investigating building their own motorway service area west of here at Athenry.
The HGV filling station could almost be a separate development, being much further down the service road.
In planning, Supermac's referred to the services as the Kiltullagh Plaza. Transport Infrastructure Ireland continue to call it Kiltullagh, despite the prominent Galway branding. In 2019 they even placed large signs on the M6 referring to a service area at Kiltullagh.
The Galway Plaza won 'Best Forecourt Facilities' at the 2019 Forecourt & Convenience Retailer Awards. In 2018 it won the same award, as well as 'Best Motorway Service Station'.
On 16 July 2021, iRadio In The Afternoon was broadcast live from the plaza.
