Looked up the hotel accomodations you recommended.. geez louise...$120 pps is a little steep for our budget per night. We like those $30 pps bed and breakfasts but there are sooo many of them. Can you check with some of your buddies friends and counterparts and see if anyone has any first hand knowledge of any of the B&Bs in the area. We have pretty much everything else in the works but Galway is becoming a problem. We want to be able to get to Galway without all those nasty parking problems but don't have to stay in the city.
