    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 also listened to the traditional music which was great. We sat at a table with 2 Irish couples on vacation for a week in Doolin. I made friends with Barry; Hans charmed Esther and Mary.

    Tomorrow I will tell you more about the traditional music at O’Connor’s, and the sweater shop in the village that has the thatched roof on top of pink walls. Oh .. and the work I did in Ennis.

    ... We were soon stopping for breathtaking views and pictures, such is the enchantment of the windswept rocky Burren- only on this day sunny and stark. The rocky hills look as though they are snow covered, and the stone houses dotted around the rocks that tilt to the sea appear so inhospitable, although it makes a beautiful vista, that we struggle to see how people exist there. Although we did see a little hay made within the rock fences, where they ...

    ... about sneaking in the 11th but all went well. After getting a good feel of the place, we determined it was safe to leave our bags in our room (The only two keys to the place were the one I had in my possession and Julie's). We spent a great deal of time wandering around Galway until we found a nice restaurant to eat at (had some excellent Guinness Beef Stew).

    In our hopes to find some place interesting to explore, Rob led ...

    ... keep me busy with work!

    We went to Spanish Arch for the Galway International Oyster Festival kick off—they announced who was representing Ireland in the International Oyster Opening Competition (yes, it is a big deal!) and had a live band. We stopped by Kings Head for a bit after that then headed home.


    Overslept, good thing I didn’t have any classes! I rushed to campus to turn in my form (despite the woman just telling me I ...
