    Stunning scenery

    by littlebush Written May 26, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Get out of Galway and head around the coastline, its stunning with rugged cliffs, green hills and deserted beaches with clear blue water.
    Roundstone is a lovely little village and make sure you dont miss the seafood chowder in the white pub with seats outside(yes, i have forgotten the name! d'oh), its the best chowder i had in Ireland!
    Clifden is another great little town, and if you have a car, take a drive around the sky road loop, for more stunning scenery! Then come back to Galway through the Connemara for even more great scenery with the 12 bens as a backdrop. Then past lake corrib and back to Galway. you can do this in a day, as long as you manage to drag yourself away from your pint of Guiness in Roundstone!

    This is NOT a commercial message, but in Galway, well, Galway is famous for one thing, (maybe others) Crystal. Galway Crystal should be bought in Galway, Ireland, the same way as Swiss Army knives should be bought in Switzerland. The stores that sell the crystal have some really neat pieces in them, fairly expensive, but worth the money, especially if you get high-quiality crystal.

    Palm Trees Swaying in the Cold Irish Wind

    Yes, there are palm trees here! I wouldn't vouch for them as being native vegetation, but they do stay alive in Irelands wet, temperate climate.

    Is this REALLY Ireland?

    The Cliffs of Moher -more2

    by bluesmama Written May 21, 2004

    The cliffs are also home to several kinds of sea birds.
    Be careful - don't walk to close to the edge. The winds can be quite violent.
