I drove to Galway and since everything is Ireland is close (Galway is only three hours from Dublin) it didn't take me long to get there. Finding my next hostel was a bit of a challenge but I finally found it and a place to park. Parking is a bit expensive as this is a tightly packed town. The most affordable place I could find was 18 Euro, but I can leave it over night. Other places were charging as much as 25 Euro.
Once settled I was able to locate the ticket office for the Galway Arts Festival which is an international arts festival held here annually. Since today is the only day I'm here I booked everything I could and found three shows that I could make. One play was great! The next was average. The third starts in about an hour.
After this next show I'm hoping to find a place that serves mussels for dinner and then I'll probably drink a few beers since I don't have to worry about driving miles back to the hostel tonight.
I'm still unable to upload pictures but I hope to find a place and a time when I'm in Dublin tomorrow. Checkout from this hostel is at 10a so I'll probably just leave town after breakfast.
