Dublin to Galway

My husband and I are driving from Dublin to Galway the weekend of September 26th. Are there any sites that you would recommend seeing on this drive?

Clonmacnoise is a short detour but well worth the stop.

The road from Dublin to Galway is mostly motorway. And it's only about 2-2.5 hours drive depending on traffic etc. What kind of sites are you looking for??

www.athlone.ie/ Get off the motorway and explore some of the villages, hate that people don't get to see some of the beautiful villages now. Second to Clonmacnoise.

Athlone is completely 'skipable' and underwhelming, i wouldnt be getting off the motorway for it.
