What's the latest word on the water ?

by ernie01

We'er visiting Galway in September and wondering if we need to bring in our own water.The landlady who we are to rent a cottage from assures us that "there is no water problem", and yet, there it is, splashed all over The Times.(no pun intended) Drinking water is one issue. It's fairly easy to drink bottled water,but should we worry about fresh vegetables or seafood ? We're going to be there during The Oyster Fest... Any info would be apreciated.

There are still problems with the water,however, you mention that you are renting a cottage?.......It is quite possible that this has a private water supply, depending on the location.....is it in the countryside....?...If so can you give general location?....also the locals have made all kinds of arrangements for visitors. It seems from what Ive read that vegetables etc are not at risk. The health and Local authority seem to be on top of the problem but because the origin of the contamination is in the existing water system , they are ultra cautious and it takes ages to work out of the system.

Check out the website for Galway County Council for the latest information and I would trust the landlasy. She has a business to run and I would doubt she would give wrong information.!

Thanks to all for the imput. Our cottage is in Salthill, so I'm hoping the private well theroy is correct. Otherwise,I can survive a week on Guinness !

Today ( aug. 20) it was announced that the water in Galway is safe to drink.

Thanks to all who replied. We survived quite well and I drank almost as much water as beer.News reports in Galway still talk of various local water problems, but it looks like the worst of it is over.

Travel Tips for Galway

Redbreast 12 Year Old Pure Pot Still Irish Whiskey

by BillNJ

The most common Irish whiskeys are made by Jameson, Bushmills, and Tullamore Dew. If you want to try something a little different, I recommend Redbreast 12 Year Old Pure Pot Still Irish Whiskey. First produced in 1939, it is triple distilled and aged in oak casks for not less than 12 years. Made with malted and unmalted barley, it is the only continuously produced, 100% pure pot still Irish whiskey. It has a rich and complex flavor, but it is still smooth and easy-drinking. Personally, I drink it on the rocks with a splash of water. Cheers!

Visit the Cliffs of Moher Visitor Centre

by BillNJ

Near the Cliffs of Moher, there is a grass-roofed visitor centre set into the hillside. When I got off my tour bus, I paid 1 Euro for access to the centre which contains restrooms, an information desk, a restaurant, and a souvenir shop. It is a new, modern facility -- opened in 2007.

It is a short walk from the visitor centre to the cliffs themselves. However, the paths are fairly steep and contain a lot of stairs. Therefore, you will want to wear comfortable shoes when you visit.

Live music

by DrexelDragon about The Cellar

Went here and listened to a decent cover band. The upstairs bar is quality with one big bar and plenty of seating in two rooms. Downstairs is one big room spread out with stools and rests on columns. There is a small bar to the one side near the entrance. This is the kind of place where you could go and spend your entire nite if there's a good crowd and a good band. Take a visit. A little bit better than jeans and a t-shirt, but not overly.

Alternative to Mc Donagh's

by RhineRoll about Conlon's Seafood Restaurant

Conlon's used to be a very reasonable upscale fish&chips restaurant, but since my first visit 1999, prices have increased beyond any measure repeating in small what goes for much of Ireland in general. At this price level, no alternative for McDonagh's. Anything with fresh salmon

The Burren Tour with McNaughton Tours

by rugbyspark

If you get the chance, make sure you take one of either "The Burren" or the "Connemara" tours with McNaughton Tour Buses (you can purchase tickets at the Aaran Ferry office across from Kinlay House near Kennedy Square in Galway). It cost 20 euros per person, but let me tell you that it was absolutely worth it and one of the highlights of my trip to Ireland. We had the most lovely tour operator named Desmond Murray, and he was my little "pocket grandpa" and told the most wonderful stories about the history of the area. Ailwee cave hosts the site of the remains of an Irish brown bear, which are thought to have become extinct in about the 11th or 12th century. You'll get to see Poulnabrone Dolmen or Portal tomb, which is apparently one of the finest examples of Portal Tombs in Ireland. Portal Tombs were the ancient burial grounds in times long gone. These tombs usually have two imposing portals or entrance stones flanking the front of a relatively small rectangular chamber. The capstone, which sometimes rests just on the end stone and on the portal stones, is often very large.
Also, you will get to see the Cliffs of Moher - 700 foot towering cliffs of slate where you can here and feel the raw beauty of all that is Ireland!
