We recently returned from a three week vacation in Ireland. We flew from California to New York and then on to Dublin. The flight was long but the service was good. We played cards for most of the trip, so the time went quickly.
We spent the first week in Dublin. We stayed in the Temple Bar area. The restaurants and nightlife were great.
We then travelled to Galway by train. We had booked Lynfield House B&B as it was beside the train station. We took a cab from the train station as we had heavy luggage, but really we could have walked it.
The B&B was excellent. The owner was most helpful in helping us organise our days. Lynfield House B&B was warm, with the rooms clean, airy and well decorated. The breakfast was massive, lots of cereal, juices and a big fried breakfast. It kept us going for a lot of the day. Along this road, there were several other B&Bs. The weather was pretty cool, but it was dry. The owner of the B&B also arranged a hired car for us, which he brought to the B&B for us. He also gave us a quick lesson on how to manage it.
We took a bus tour of Connemara, which was great as we saw how ancestors lived many years ago. We visited a beautiful pub restaurant in Clifden (Kings). The food and pint of Guinness were great.
In Galway City, we spent most evenings in Quay Street. This area has lots of restaurants, quaint Irish bars and nightclubs. We found the most wonderful restaurant (McDonaghs) for lunch, which served fish and chips. The place was packed, so we figured it had to be good.
Overall, we had a great time in Ireland and the highlight was our week in Galway City.
