    The actual company is the same one I used last time Vince. They have an excess of £1500 and a charge for a half full tank of petrol. Fair enough they are making at least 50% profit on the fuel but I can leave it back empty. They also have a 100 mile a day limit and charge 15p per mile over that but I wont be doing that kind of mileage. I already have excess car hire insurance. The car is costing @ 12 pound a day. The bus from the airport and another one to the apartment would cost 15 pound each way anyway.

    Just a pedestrian lane with a couple of good pubs and a very good restaurant by all accounts( never in it). The lane would have some of the oldest buildings in the city. Nice to stroll down, but the whole city  centre is pedestrian friendly ( and very safe )

    There are some there, a lot more on Shop St, a table manned by greenpeace types, another table with 2 lads spouting the virtues of islam. Never saw one person stopping at either table. Was of bloody time. There is only one mosque in the whole country. Those tree huggers sicken my arse. Start worrying about the abused kids first ffs!

    You'll be spoilt for choice with musicians everywhere. Galway is the music capital of Ireland. Everything from blues to jazz, traditional to folk, metal to hip hop. Keep an ear out and pop in wherever you hear something that you like. More often than not, there isn't even a cover charge though for the bigger acts, there might be. Keep an eye on this site. I think it updates every month

    All the Heathrow to New York/Boston flights go over us. I once counted 11 jets in the sky at one time.
