We had two days in County Galway. Galway City is the biggest and really only city on the western coast of Ireland. It provided an interesting contrast to the more rural and small town feel of the locales we had just visited.

However, a day trip to Inishmore, one of the Aran Islands brought us right back to a more rural and desolate environment. Made of same fascinating rocky landscape as The Burren and cliff edge home to the 2000 year old fortress Dún Aenghus.

On our way out of Galway we stopped for a quick look at Cong with its church ruins juxtaposed with a new highly modern church.
