    Galway

    September 30, 2018 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    Just what was needed- a relaxed day with no travelling and no agenda. We got up and followed our phones to nearest Catholic Church for 10am Mass. Always interesting to go to Mass in another country. The lovely church was opposite the river which we then followed into town. With most shops not opening until 12 we wandered through town and up a back street where we found a lovely wee bar where we enjoyed a drink and David watched some golf on the big screen. Very relaxing. We then spent the afternoon looking around the shops, a real variety. We wandered back to the house and enjoyed a rest and sorted rest of our time in Ireland. We then walked back into town (no wonder I walked 15000 steps today) for dinner. We were lucky to get into a highly rated restaurant called Quay Kitchen where we ate a delicious dinner. After dinner we strolled along the streets listening to a variety of musicians before going into a little bar for a quick drink before the walk back to the apartment. While being a very old fashioned city, Galway’s streets are extremely busy with many tourists and tourist shops. The atmosphere is cool with lots of street entertainment.Read more
