this weekend past, we left the big smoke and headed west to the Altantic coast of Ireland and stayed in Galway.
This is the real ireland! Sometimes when you are in the city, you can forget where you are, and while Dublin is a lovely city, it is just that, a city!
Galway is really cool, (yes, also very cold!) and i would love to go there again, even driving through there was all the old stone walls without cement divinding fields of sheep in higgledy-piggeldy lines and gorgeous, slightly scandinavian views, with very few trees and the winter sun low in the sky. You should definately visit!
Also, we went for High tea at The G, which is the most amazing hotel i have ever set foot in! and while we could never afford to stay there, to have tea and a tiny sandwich and breathe the air in The G, it was a real treat for me!
the photos just don't do the innovative design justice!!! Super luxurious!
