Galway has its own Monopoly board - and here are the most expensive places...

Either way, bagsy we’re the dog. You can be the top hat.

GALWAY BAY AND Kylemore Abbey are the most expensive spaces on the new Galway edition of Monopoly.

The two locations form the top spots, the Ailesbury and Shrewsbury Roads of the old Dublin version.

The makers have already revealed that The Spanish Arch, which dates back to 1584 and has protected Galway from both the elements and any potential enemy invasion, is on the much talked about Crumlin spot, the most affordable location in the game.

Two charities get to appear on the board too – Galway SPCA and The Galway Autism Partnership based in Galway City, but who run activities for families throughout Galway city and county.​

Mayor of Galway City Frank Fahy says he is delighted so many city “Crown Jewels” have made it onto the board.

From perhaps our biggest jewel in the crown Galway Bay sitting atop the board to the many other popular landmarks in all regions of the board, we are delighted with this final product.

“I feel the board can only help us in our bid to be named ‘The European Capital of Culture 2020’. It showcases the vibrancy and diversity the city and county of Galway.”
