Touring Ireland - Part 1

On Sunday we started our tour of southern Ireland with Meagan's dad as our guide. We started out by heading to Drewstown House where Meagan used to go to camp as a child. It is an old manor house located by a small lake. Queen Victoria once visited it during her time. Summer camp in Ireland is a little different from what I'm used to!











Swans are found in the wild all over Ireland. At one point we even passed a harbour with about 50 swans all swimming in the ocean.








On Sunday night we arrived in Galway City, located on the west coast of Ireland. It was a really beautiful town with great pedestrian areas to walk around in. I had the best seafood here for dinner: fresh oysters and salmon. I couldn't believe how many pubs there were in one area, and they were all full!
