Father Patrick told us that the St. Patrick’s Cathedral of Galway was much more impressive than his ‘hidden 11th century icons’ so that was our next stop.
It was beautiful inside but to a certain extent it was just another church (I was much more impressed with the 11th century icons.)The uniquely tiled floor.The stop at the Cathedral was followed by a few other fun bits like this very friendly dog.
A cheesemonger, something we do’t find too often in Vancouver.I don’t really know if a pig can be considered decorative but I suppose it has its charms.An unusual doorway.
We had dinner at Il Vicolo, a charming old mill set upon the river and converted into an Italian Restaurant.We had crab to start followed by pasta, the names of which escape me.One pasta was chicken and artichokes in a creamy sauce and the other was a lamb/red wine/ragout, both were excellent and had us vowing to try out more Italian.Artsy bit, Galway Cathedral run through the photo app Stackables.
NEXT: The next day were were off to Doolin, the Cliffs of Moher and the Aran Island of Inisheer.
