Maybe I can get a job at the local tour agency!! …

It is a must place to visit when in Galway. The scenery is lovely, warm and beautiful. We enjoyed our walk over the river then out to the causeway looking at the many swans. Such a great place to have stroll with your love ones.

Also nearby you have good tavern's visited by locals.…
