Name: Adam Sheeran (cousin of Ed’s maybe?)
Where are you from: Galway city born and raised.
Hobbies: Recording music, surfing, reading photography, Stopping strangers on the street to pet their dogs and Instagram addict……. Look me up!
Favorite country you have visited: Iceland!!!
If someone else is travelling there, what should they see: I went there in October and was fortunate enough to see the Northern Lights in all their glory. Very surreal! I love animals so Whale Watching was a tick off my bucket list. The other worldly landscape of Iceland is unbelievable, definitely something to experience in person.
Dream destination you would like to visit next? Why? : The National Parks of America. I would love to switch off from technology for a while and get out into the wild.
Favourite Pub: Caribou. Great craft beers, amazing food, Cards against Humanity and the music playlist is top notch. Although Tigh Neachtains on Quay Street has the best Guinness in Galway.
Favourite Restaurant: The Lighthouse Café. Great options for Vegans and Vegetarians at a reasonable price.
Perfect day in Galway: On the rare occasion that it’s sunny, sitting outside Neachtains Pub on Quay Street with a pint (or ten) of Guinness. It’s the best spot for people watching and soaking up the real Galway atmosphere.
What should people not miss in Galway: Free walking tour, Walk the prom in Salthill and kick the wall, pints, feed the swans down the Claddagh, pints, visit the famous Saturday market, pints, traditional Irish music in Tig Cóilí coupled with a couple more pints of the “Black Stuff”.
Favorite spots in Ireland: I go surfing when I can, so a small surfing town called Lahinch in County Clare has some steady waves for beginners to advanced surfers. Also Killarney down in Co. Kerry. It has one of the biggest national parks in Ireland. Takes a while to get there but worth the journey to get out into the wilderness. Check out the forest around Torc Waterfall.
Irish Expression everyone should know: Pint? (It’s never just the one……)
