Make sure to dress warmly and bring an extra beanie to enjoy everything Ireland offers in the winter....

The best pubs in Galway: Music, pints, and Irish craic

Anyone who’s been to Ireland knows that as amazing as Dublin’s pubs may be, the real craic is in Galway. Sure, I may be biased as Galway was once a place that I called home, but I’m not alone in my thoughts.
