      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. …

      ... There was a memorial cross at one spot, commemorating "The hungry poor who walked here in 1849, and walk the Third World today". We stopped for a drink at a lovely little pub at Maam Cross where we also checked out on the TV how Steve Hooker was going and discovered he never got over his opening height – never mind!

      Keeping on driving, at 9.00pm we finally reached The ...

      ... Hopefully we can find a place to stay and post this tonight. I will have updates later on, either tonight or tomorrow... ...we made it to Galway and checked into a hostel and went out to see the city. It was quite small but the atmosphere was very enjoyable.

      ... We drove around the town and checked a few more attractions, had lunch at the park (in the car!). We realised the rain was not going to stop for us so we decided to make tracks to the next stop of the day.
      Ennistymon is an untouched little village, not yet spoiled by tourism, so a great place to have a look around. Not so much a place to see specific sights just nice to hang out in a local village for a bit.

      ... Baby was really good travelling and jet lag going that direction is grand its coming back here is the problem, but even then it only took her a week to get back to sleeping all night, so not so bad. So first two days in Dublin - went to my old hairdresser (they know nothing about curly hair here), met some ex colleagues for lunch, had dinner in another mates and people who were home from Spain who we wouldn't have seen otherwise were there too so that was cool. ...
