i visited county galway in western ireland in august2003 with 2 freinds.
i spend most of my days out on the countryside hiking with an italian guy that we met on the road and most nights with all the guys down one of the fantastic irish pubs.

    The Sky Road looks great for hiking! I plan to visit Galway and Connemara in February. Not the best time of year for hiking, but anyway, I hope it won't be too rainy and foggy all days.

    Thanks for the great tips, we are going in Sept and will definately visit a lot of the countryside and less of the towns ;-)

    Haha, I agree with Irish pubs, they are indeed fantastic! And I agree too that "seeing the towns in ireland is a big crime". I am not a criminal and hardly visited any big town!

    Thanks for the memories, we found Galway to be the nicest part of Ireland, a beautiful countryside and nice city.

    Thanks for the nice comment on my Hartford page. Very good tips and photos about County Galway. I will be visiting Galway and elsewhere in Ireland in November. Cheers!

    Loved Co. Galway. . although it looks like we missed out on some good hikes! We drove through Clifden and skipped the sun road - have to do it next time!

    Yes, the pubs are indeed great. I picked up a Guiness stumble while there.

    Sounds like you were really at home in Galway and your pictures are great. Yeh, it's a great place for drinking alright but I'm glad you included the sober as well as the drunk in your blessing. :))

    What a great overview of County Galway. You captured the ambience of Ireland with your witty narrative and beautiful photos.
