Galway Claddagh In The Snow - Irish Winter Canvas Print
This Irish winter canvas print features a magical view of the Galway Claddagh in the snow. This is a bit of a flight of fancy. It was very icy and cold during my winter visit to Galway, but there was only a brief snow flurry on one night I was there. But it was my first night in Galway and an unforgettable introduction to this beautiful Irish city. On my visit to Ireland, I initially took a bus trip around to see the highlights. I had more than a month in Ireland afterward that was unplanned and that one night in Galway lured me back for more. Galway will never leave me no matter how far away I am. It was one of those places you can't help thinking, "What if I could stay here?"
This view of the Galway Claddagh in the snow features a view of the Eglinton Canal Basin with boats in the frozen-over-water. Beyond them is the Claddagh Church, Saint Mary's Priory, a Dominican church. The Claddagh history is tied to Galway but was originally separate. With no bridges, the Claddagh was a fishing village that sat across the water from Galway. Today it's part of Galway proper, but with its own unique history. The large building to the right of the church, for instance, was a 19th century schoolhouse built to teach local children ready, writing, and skills that would help them in an Irish fishing village.
This Irish winter canvas print seems to strike a chord with many. I don't know if it's simply down to it being a part of beautiful Galway or if it's the magical swirling snow but it's been a popular piece of art featuring Galway over the years that I've offered prints and cards of it.

Canvas Prints - Product Information
Stretched canvas prints are a great choice for decorating your home or office. Canvas art is a classic choice that is at home in traditional and modern decor alike.
After the purchase of your canvas print, it is made to your order. The artwork is printed on an acid-free poly/cotton blend canvas. The use of archival inks and substrate means that your canvas art print should last a lifetime without fading or loss of color.
When ordering your print, you have a choice between glossy and matte finishes. While I ordinarily love matte finishes on prints, I do like the sheen that comes on glossy canvas prints. Ultimately I would suggest letting the amount of light in your space guide your choice. In a brightly lit environment, I would lean towards a matte finish to reduce the chance of glare.
There are three wrap styles to choose from for canvas prints. The mirrored wrap choice mirrors and extends the image to the sides of the canvas wrap (without losing any of the original artwork on the front). The majority of the time I would suggest this is the best choice. The other two options are a solid black wrap or white wrap. You can see a preview of each option when selecting wrap color.
After printing, the canvas is stretched over and secured to a wooden frame of 1.5" by 1.5" stretcher bars. The entire production process takes from 10 to 15 business days. Your artwork will arrive in sturdy packaging. The hanging wire will be attached and all hardware necessary to hang your canvas print will be included. Canvas prints are a great ready-to-hang option.
