      Really nice modern hotel on the bay. Our room was superb, being a corner room with windows on two sides. This was a big help to let in a breeze since it was particularly warm when we were there in July 2013.

      The best hotel in Galway by far. Grand building facing Galway Bay. Short drive to town. Rooms well appointed with good on-site dining & bar.

      Breakfast at Dromoland Castle was a thoroughly silver affair. The coffee server, creamer, sugars (light and dark), the salt & pepper, the vase, the teaspoons, the tea pot and the extra pot of hot water (in case the tea became too strong) were all silver. The staff was appropriately attired - see Downton Abbey. And the dining room was elegant. …

We stifled our annoyance at the fundamental unfairness of life and asked her for dinner recommendations, got a couple, and were also advised to go to Matt Malloy’s Pub, Matt Malloy being the flutist for the Chieftans, for a drink, some Irish music, and lots of atmosphere. We walked over to the Brasserie at the Wyatt Hotel, passing Matt Malloy’s on the way, had a good dinner, walked back ...

      ... became worse I worked my way back up inland to Ennis and home.

      Was away a few hours, and my drive had not been all that spectacular. So home for some reading for myself. Cooked dinner and had an earlyish night

      Bit of a boring day this one. Never mind.
