Didn’t have the greatest sleep last night.  This B&B was really noisy.

Image

  But, they did have a very good breakfast.

Image

After breakfast, we drove to Galway City Centre not knowing what would be open as, believe it or not, they had a Bank Holiday today.  Weird because it is a Civic Holiday at home.

There are a few buildings built around old stone walls. This is they Eyre Square Mall which used to be a castle.

Image

Looks like it is outside but it is all inside.

I shopped a bit inside this mall then went outside to the City Centre and all the many shops on the streets.  Ron was very patient and brought his book and drank his coffee.

After a bit of browsing, we walked to this beautiful church.  This is one section of the ceiling.

and here are the stained glass windows

This church holds concerts and I bet the acoustics are amazing.

I really wanted to go to this place today when I saw it yesterday

P1040975

Not sure if you can read the sign or not, but it says something like “even though it is frilly guys should eat here because the food is good”  So, we ate here..

Image

It was very nicely done.  Makes me thing of my friend Candice. Mainly because we used to have tea in tearooms together.  It has been awhile since we have.  We will have to do it when I get back.

Image

Image

I had a scone with butter, jam and cream.  OH MY! I must get back to running soon!!

Image

And there is my tea, Chocolate Infusion

Image

Image

and me sipping it

Image

Image

It was a lovely lunch. Can you tell I like it?

I found another church.  This is a very religious country so there seem to be many around.

Image

Image

Then we found some men fly fishing in the middle of the city…

Image

Image

Not an overly exciting day but it was a good day.  We didn’t want to do a lot of driving because we did yesterday and have to again tomorrow as well.  We wanted to stay close.  There ended up being a lot of shops open and many things to see downtown.  We also walked quite a bit which helped

Off to Dublin tomorrow and another B&B

Until we meet again.
