“Confession of a Galwaymaniac”

We need to choose our holidays carefully, us pedestrians. Call us cautious, but we opted for Galway, mid-way up the West Coast of Ireland. Not that Galway feels 'safe' in a stodgy kind of way. We didn't go for the nightlife but there was a buzz about the place that hit us as soon as we stepped...

“Bongos and Beer By the Bay”

ProGreat atmosphere, beautiful scenery, plenty to see...

I've just come home from a two week holiday touring around the West of Ireland - Clare, Mayo and Galway - spending a night or two in B&Bs all over, with the last few spent in Galway. We wanted to see Galway as it has a good repuation for being a lively and lovely city, but after having seen all...
