Our Ireland Adventure
Day 10

St. Judes B&B and the National Aquarium of Ireland

 

It was a good day for a travel day due to the wind and cold. However, before leaving Dromoland Castle for our jaunt up to Galway, Paul met Patrick at the front of the castle for a stint of Clay Pigeon shooting. Patrick drove us to a secluded area of the castle grounds and gave instruction. Paul had thirty shots and hit quite a few targets. What fun, but it did leave his shoulder a bit sore.

The drive to Galway was an hour and twenty minutes. It is a harbor city on Ireland’s west coast and sits where the River Corrib meets the Atlantic. 

Our bed and breakfast, St. Judes offered a small room with an en-suite bathroom. Most importantly the internet worked well enough for me to get a bit of blogging and work in. It is also located just a half a mile from the beach.

You can see from the photos below that it was cold. But you cannot feel the wind that almost blew us over as we walked the city.

Considering the weather, we picked an indoor activity, the National Aquarium of Ireland. It was eight euros per senior to enter the Galway Atlantaquaria.

Galway Atlantaquaria, National Aquarium of Ireland seeks to present a comprehensive view of the world of water through clear and interesting displays, informed helpful staff and exciting live presentations and animal interaction sessions.

It was fun and I enjoyed taking photos.

We ate an early dinner/late lunch at Da Roberta's Ristorante & Pizzeria. Yummy food, good atmosphere, friendly service but no alcohol due to the Good Friday ban. . . . . . . I did enjoy some tasty grape juice . . . .
