I loved the western coast of Ireland SO much, especially the places in nature that we got to explore. I made sure to take note of my favorite places so that any of you who are traveling through Ireland (or aspire to!) can have a starting point for places to visit!
Food & Coffee in Galway- Jungle Coffee (for cool, casual vibes), Open Door (healthy restaurant), Badger and Dodo (for some good, slow coffee), McDonagh's (for proper fish & chips), Cupán Tea (for the BEST scones & tea), & Coffeewerk + Press (easily the best coffee/design shop around).
Touristy Day Trips That Are Worth It- Cliffs of Moher, Kylemore Abbey, & Connemara
