It's definitely Galway in Fractale I used to live there so I recognised it from the first shot of them walking past the alley - that got quite a giggle out of me.
One of the signs on the street even says "GLWAY"

They took some liberties with the arrangement of Shop Street, but here's a few comparison shots. I'll be back in Galway on Sunday and I plan on getting some proper photos of all the locations for the craic.

The canals just off Mill Street. Notice the Cathedral in the background.


-------------------------------------------------
Church Lane, just off Shop Street. (The angle in the show is looking out from the alley, Google Street View is looking in)



-------------------------------------------------
The previously shown Mills Street Garda Station. The interior shot of the building in the show is actually a perfect recreation too!



-------------------------------------------------
The famous RYANS sign on Shop Street



-------------------------------------------------
Here's where the changes start appearing. Everything is correct except for the placement of the church, which is actually directly behind the pharmacy on the right
There's actually an earlier shot in the anime looking the other direction down this street which follows the street plan in Galway exactly, but the buildings are drawn differently. (They even have the RYANS sign in the earlier shot, but it's painted green and has GLWAY written on it)



-------------------------------------------------
And finally St. Nicholas's Church - or at least the main steeple.



There are some other locations, like the metal crane statue that is just down the road from the canals, but I didn't screencap any of them for the moment.

Woops, forgot to crop out the top of firefox in those last shots... now you all know of my terrible addiction to browsing the Pokédexs on Serebii!

There's already been quite a good discussion of Fractale on this forum. I've now taken those posts from the Winter Anime 10/11 thread and created this thread specifically for discussion of Fractale.

So there ya go

Meant to put these up a while ago, but Fractale's lack of new Irish locations made me forget about em XD
I was in Galway a few weeks ago and tried to get photos from the same angles as the shots in the show.
The one of the Canals was printed in the Galway Advertiser this week, but the bastards never credited me

Hmm, perhaps we should get these images into the general Anime blogosphere...

Dublins in there too. Nowhere near as accurate as Galway but you can notice a few landmarks such as the national conference center and the grand canal theatre. I threw in a few captures so you can have a gawk.

You're right, that is the new docklands redevelopment!

the 3rd one really clinches it, the checkerboard pattern is very distinctive.

There was a bunch of shots in that episode that tickled my memory but I couldn't figure out where I'd seen them before! Good stuff!

It's pretty impressive that they were aware of it. The docklands is quite new.

It seems they went to ridiculous effort for this show. I mean, they recreated the inside of the Galway Garda Station right down to the little blue sticker on the glass panel :/

Great pics Sairus! I knew it was modelled off parts of Galway and Inishmore but I had no idea it was that accurate. That's actually pretty creepy they'd go to such lengths D:

The lengths the creators of that show went to to get accuracy is pretty awesome .

Awesome stuff Sairus.
