For our first wedding anniversary, my wife and I spent 10 days in Ireland. We started in Dublin and drove our way from town to town, following the coast south and west. Each stop was memorable, and the people we met were amazing, but we both agree that Galway was our favorite. The photos below were taken at the Aran Islands, which are a short drive and ferry ride from Galway. We were stunned by the beauty of the scenery throughout Ireland, but this was easily the best we encountered.
