We arrived in Galway and took it easy for a day.

The next day we organised a day trip out to The Burren where we saw a brilliant Neolithic Dolmen and the Cliffs of Moher. The trip out included a stop at a cute little castle. Then we made our way out through the Burren. It's an amazing landscape rocky and stark but beautiful. The Dolmen was actually a pretty brilliant sight. Set on a massive rock plateau cut through by water erosion the three massive slabs used to build this thing were impressive.

The Cliffs are truly spectacular. We walked as far as we could one way and back the other as far as we could get before our time was up. It wasn't enough time to really absorb and appreciate the beauty.

The next day was St Patrick's Day. We loaded up on food and headed out onto the streets to see the parade. It was cute, mainly schools and local associations, apparently the money is all spent in Dublin, but it was fun to watch anyway. Then we decided to check out some of the local bars. We spent our day with a few of the other backpackers in our hostel and checked out a few pubs and knocked back a few pints. Fish and chips for dinner was a nice treat as was the Irish Coffee half way through.

The next day was pretty quiet and we had a bit of a wander around Galway and got ourselves organised to head off to Belfast.
