... Every cottage is enclosed by them and their cattle, sheep, and horses are all kept in these stone boundaries. All very beautiful. We returned to our hotel in Galway where we spent a final evening with our travel mates and good friends having drinks and dinner together as tomorrow afternoon marks the end of the tour for us.

It is strange to see them crowded right next to each other. The church itself had some interesting artistic details and was much bigger than the Gallus Oratory. Although it was missing a roof. After the Dongle peninsula was good and photographed ...
