Ireland pt 2: Galway and Connemara

Today you get the part two of my travels to Ireland. I had so much fun in Galway: I tried Guinness for the first time (so Irish, I know), went to the city museum to actually learn about the town I was staying in, and saw so many amazing landscapes!

During my third day in Galway I decided to take a tour to Connemara: an Irish speaking area in the West of Ireland with landscape straight out of Lord of the Rings. The main attraction of the tour was the Kylemore Abbey, which is situated next to a beautiful lake. The abbey was gorgeous and the misty weather made the area seem very serene and peaceful.

The abbey has a cathedral almost next to it, which was situated also along the little path that went along the lake. I walked that area for an hour and didn’t get tired of the scenery one bit. It was like a vacation for the mind.

I also included here a picture of Cup├ín Tae, which I talked about in the previous post as well, because it was such a lovely place and where I actually chose to have my last lunch on my last day in Galway. Next there’s the half a day in Dublin! I’ll try and post it soon :)
