Wednesday May 23 Ballinasloe to Galway and return - I took the #20 bus from Ballinasloe. It was scheduled for 10:10 but got there at 10:40. It was a beautiful day and I had really enjoyed the Spring like weather. The bus and train station in Galway is the same building. It is right off of Eyre Square. The bus takes a roundabout route which takes it through some other towns it picks up in. The ride takes about an hour. Eyre Square is a great place to relax and people watch. And the weather was so nice and cool. Really excellent and the air was so fresh and the grass so green.
After enjoying Erye Square a good while I did a little homework on some of the hostels available near Eyre Square and then I walked down Shop steet etc to the River Corrib where I relaxed and enjoyed the view a bit and then walked up the river some and back. A really excellent day. The kind of day in which just being there to enjoy it was enough !
I found the Kinlay Hostel off of Eyre Square the most to
my liking and will probably stay there next Monday-Wednesday, and then go to Doolin to explore the Cliffs of Moher Area.
I went to the Galway City Museum by the Spanish Arch and didn't finish looking at all the exhibits as it was 4 floors so I will have to come back tomorrow and finish.
