Ireland — Venturing from Dublin; Galway


Galway, Ireland

Today and next Monday we’ll look at the city of Galway here on the blog. And on this week’s Fun Photo Friday I’ll post some favorites of both Galway and the Burren.

Here we had only the briefest of tour guiding before being released to wander about, find lunch, and eventually head back to the tour bus. Our choice of lunch I’ll present to you on Monday, but for now I’ll just say there was no shortage of choices about.

Galway received a municipal charter in 1484, but it began life as a fortification some 360 years earlier, in 1124.
