European Vacation - Ireland - Galway

Next stop on our holiday in Ireland was Galway, just two hours drive from Dublin.  We stayed near the Spanish Arch which is the touristy part of town.

My wife identified several book stores in Galway prior to arriving however we only had time to visit one; Charlie Byrne's Bookshop on Middle Street.

This is a fantastic store with heaps of second hand books all well organised.  I took these photos as well as finding six Bond novels.  Unfortunately I had all the covers.

We also saw this book store selling new books but it was closed.

And finally here's some more photos from our time in Galway:
