Day 2 was all about a proper visit of Galway
After a quick drive around Kennedy square, we parked for a bit of a walk around. Just around the corner from where we parked, there was a really cool rock music mural – split into three sections: it had Elvis reaching for god (like the scene from the sistine chapel), the other had rockstar heaven with the likes of Johnny Cash, Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, etc, and the final had famous rock stars still alive like Bono.
We walked through the old part of the town, and there are a few streets that have loads of pubs. Galway is supposed to be big for music, but there wasn’t as much of that early in the morning besides a couple of buskers. Also, we were there a bit early for a visit to the pub.
We did see the Galway cathedral, St Nicholas Church, Lynch Castle, the Spanish Arches, and a few of the canals.
According to our book, this is a matchmaking hub for a few weeks in the summer. The place was a bit quiet, but we stopped for lunch and I had my first Guinness in Ireland.
Burren National Park
Very cool, very big park. The hills were a kind of purple and looked amazing. We were probably driving through this park for at least an hour. It would have been nice to walk some of the trails, but there was no time.
Cliffs of Mohor
Amazing views. Lots of bugs and some funny safety signs.
This was pretty awesome.
Near Limerick, this is a pretty little village so we stopped for a little walk around the park and up the main street.
