2002 - Galway, Ireland

A long weekend visiting friends in the west of Ireland.

I flew to Shannon and then caught a bus to Galway.

I spent a short time in Limerick while waiting for the bus.

More of Limerick.

We wandered around the Galway Bay area, including the Burren, the Cliffs of Moher and a boat trip up the River Corrib. We also had a couple of decent nights out as well. The Irish really know how to enjoy themselves!
