Newspoint and Over the Moon

Update:  June 2023

Ă€lainn took over the ice-cream counter for a while, but they've gone again. It looks like Newspoint are now managing it themselves, selling Kelly's Icecream.

Update:  January 2022

Over the Moon have decided to concentrate on their original store in the Eyre Square Centre, and the counter here is closed.  Newsprint us still going strong, though.


This combination newsagent and ice-cream shop opened in the Galway Shopping Centre on the Headford Rd in May 2021.

They are in the shop-unit which was previously occupied by Happy Days, who unhappily had to close a fair few months ago.

The good news is that both Newspoint and Over the Moon are established local businesses with a history of operating successfully in shopping centre locations:   during the Covid-19, closedowns, they've opened when possible, providing great levels of customer service and safety.

Over the Moon have a front-window location - you don't even have to go into the shop to sample their great-value home-made gelatos and icecreams.   Newspoint have the expected range of papers, magazines, lottery products - and an interesting range of books and stationery, too.
