Right Click on eclipse icon to see package contents

Right Click on the icon and select "Show Package Contents" now go to Content/MacOS/, here you would see eclipse.ini file, let's see what details this file contains,

eclipse ini file macOS

--launcher.library
../../../plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.cocoa.macosx.x86_64_1.1.0.v20100503
-product

../../../plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.cocoa.macosx.x86_64_1.1.0.v20100503

If it contains x86_64 then your eclipse is 64-bit or else if it contains just x86 then it is a 32-bit setup.
