Sunday Snapshot | River Corrib | Galway Bay, Ireland

Galaway Bay

We were spending three weeks on the beautiful, wild and remote west coast of Ireland when I took this picture of Galway Bay. Galway was one of my favorite cities on the island; it’s small and walkable, has some great history and fantastic nightlife. This is the mouth of the River Corrib at high tide. The water level at low tide is so low that you can actually walk on the bottom and collect shells, mussels, clams and other molluscs. Seafood is abundant and you can order delicious oysters and pots of cooked mussels in one of the many pubs on Shop Street.

  1. Galway is a place that is very near and dear to my heart. I got my Claddagh ring there (where they originate) all the way back in 2005. It is also a place where my grandparents went, stepped into the river and renewed their vows to one another. This is all very meaningful given my Irish roots. :)

    • That’s amazing! What a special place to be connected to. I visited Galway years ago, but I would love to go back with Dan. What an great way for your grandparents to renew their vows!
