Day Trippin’: Galway

The great western coast of Ireland is where you will find the beautiful city of Galway. Filling your days with shopping, dining and sightseeing is an easy task.  Take in the Lynch Memorial Window, Lynch Castle, The Spanish Arch, St. Nicholas’ Collegiate Church, Eyre Square and stop for a bite to eat at The Pie Maker, The Skeff, The King’s Head, McDonough’s and Finnegan’s.

The area surrounding Galway, is home to some spectacular views and sites which are truly unmatched by any other place I have yet to visit. If you are basing yourself in Galway, there are many things that will be fairly easy to reach, or you can book a tour (check out Lally Tours) which will often allow you to see more sites in your limited time.

Wild Atlantic Way – While it takes about 3 days to drive this stunning scenic route, you can hire/rent a car and drive part of it fairly easily!

With limited time in Galway, you can see all the different scenery that the Western side of Ireland holds!
