Fondest memory: I walked down Shop Street which as usual was full of buskers. There was one that made me smile: He was standing on a litter box singing "My lovely horse" (Famous from the Father Ted Eurovision episode). Everybody who passed by him sang along and had a smile on their face - including me!
Favorite thing: There are great Irish music sessions to be found in Galway City. Ask some locals about the best ones and go hear some great tunes.
