Farewell Castle!

 We had a very leisurely morning with breakfast and then exploring the castle more. K and I went for a run on the castle grounds. How often can one say that!? These were either roads or access roads through fields. It was very peaceful. 

We were headed to Galway but first we stopped at Carrowmore Megalithic Cemetery. This was another peaceful setting with many megalithic stone circles, dolmens and a large cairn. the weather had changed and it was pretty windy out in the fields but it really wasn't cold.  Seeing all the stone circles etc really just makes you ponder what those people were doing, planning and dreaming of. We made it to Galway with time to wander a bit through the very busy shopping streets, have a wonderful dinner and finally a pint of THE Irish beer. It was delicious!
