An Escape to Galway City

Hello my loves! 

A few weeks ago we went on a weekend trip to Galway city, so I want to share it with you all! After a stressful and busy few weeks in college, this was a great getaway from the books. Between the great weather, yummy food, Galways's coast and spending time with friends, this was just the perfect escape. 
This post is overloaded with pictures so prepare yourselves!


 We stayed in the fabulous Salthill Hotel just outside Galway. The hotel has great facilities with a lovely view of the sea and the promenade.



If you are ever in Galway city you have to go to Cupán Tae beside the spanish arch. This cafe is so cute and the perfect spot for some tea and cake with the girls. They have lovely cakes, sandwiches and afternoon tea. We were served our tea in a cute little tea pot, I really felt like I was at a tea party! This was my favourite place to eat in Galway!

 On our last Galway getaway we went to Gemelles restaurant. This is one of the nicest restaurants I've ever been to so we had to go back. There is such a cosy romantic atmosphere here and the food is delicious. For starter I got the goat's cheese tartlet and for main course I ordered the chickpea and cashew nut koftas. I literally ordered the exact same dishes as the last time I was here! Luke ordered the carmalised onion and cheese bruschetta and lamb. This place is well worth a visit!



Breakfast in Salt hill



I love Italian restaurants, so I couldn't pass the Trattoria Restaurant without trying it. This restaurant is beside the spanish arch hotel on Quay street. The pasta dishes were so rich and tasty, I'd definatley recommend it!
