Our first stop was Trim, home to the castle where “Braveheart” was filmed. It was worth the visit – the town was quaint and the castle had an interesting and somewhat barbaric past. Now the only thing barbaric was the local food which was either deep fried or covered with mayonnaise.
We then headed to Clonmacnoise as there was an early Christian site there
By the time we arrived at Galway, we laid down for a nap (2 hours) and decided to check out the local sights. We drove to the nearby seaside resort of Salthill, but this summer weather is like our winter. As appealing as Galway is, it lacks the character and history we enjoyed so much about Dublin.
The rest of the evening was spent watching Spain defeat Germany in the World Cup. It’s interesting how much more engaging it is to watch when you’re in Europe.
