A local's guide to ten of Galway, Ireland's best-kept secrets
A Big hello to you!
I was up and at 'em today. After taking the girls to school, I made two stops - first to my favorite wrap and salad joint, the Garden City Bistro, for a yummy "Florentine" wrap filled with eggwhites, spinach, red onions and tomatoes. So yummy!!!!
And...a great deal at $4.50!!
Then, I drove over to Ace Hardware for a brand new measuring tape.
I have so much to measure in my house now that I'll be bringing along to the new house and I want to get a sense in advance as to where each item will go prior to actually moving in.
Being as anal retentive as I am, I want to have all of this pre-planned!!

Top place to visit in Galway, according to a local! From a cup of tea to kicking walls, this is what the City of the Tribes is all about. It’s the only city on the Wild Atlantic Way and next year it’s set to become the European Capital of Culture. Galway is a small city on the west coast of Ireland which consistently punches well above its weight and should be a “must see” destination on any trip to the Emerald Isle.
Visitors to the City of the Tribes are consistently amazed by the sheer variety of entertainment on offer and energetic nightlife to be found in a city which has only about 80,000 inhabitants, but during the peak tourist season, it feels like so much more.
People love Galway for its bustling streets, its colorful characters, and entertainers, its thriving pub scene, but above all the friendliness of its people. It was voted the “friendliest city in the world” by a New York-based magazine two years ago – and who are we to argue!
Here, our man on the ground in Galway gives a personalized guide to ten hidden highlights of this vibrant city.
Oliver Cromwell’s forces used to roar “To Hell or to Connacht” when they ran Irish peasants out of their land holdings, but these days many people come to Galway for a week and decide that they want to stay forever!
