City Center.. in the beautiful city of Galway.. .The smaller cities in Ireland are so enchanting. A lot of character and detail in every single building.This shop was amazing in Galway city, Ireland. Compared to the same old bland glass fronted boxy stores we see here in North America, this is so much more pleasing to the eyes...Just managed to grab a picture of this couple who were perusing the menu before they noticed me taking a picture and moved out of the frame. I thanked them for moving but so wanted to tell them that them being in picture is what made the difference, to me at least. I hope you agree...Here's their website:

Galway City

Arty, bohemian Galway (Gaillimh) is one of Ireland's most engaging cities. Brightly painted pubs heave with live music, while restaurants and cafes offer front-row seats for observing buskers and street theatre. Remnants of the medieval town walls lie between shops selling handcrafted Claddagh rings, books and musical instruments, bridges arch over the salmon-stuffed River Corrib, and a long promenade leads to the seaside suburb of Salthill, on Galway Bay, the source of the area's famous oysters.
