A church, a school and a hotel are all part of my Thursday Doors contribution this week. At the bottom of Queen Street, Galway City, you’ll find this old Methodist Church and school. Built around 1835, the building is still in use today by the United Methodist and Presbyterian congregations. The entrance to the school is on the first floor and reached by concrete steps.
Beside this building is the Victorian Hotel, aptly named as it’s on Queen Street. Although we didn’t get a chance to sample the food, the menu in Alexandra’s Restaurant was quite tempting and the ambiance of the Old Vic Bar almost lured me in for an Irish Coffee. However, a sign near the entrance had a stronger pull on us five women loose in the city (not five loose women in the city). I know what you’re thinking. Yes, we did buy clothes.
It’s the first time I’ve ever seen a sign ‘Smart Dress Essential’ (pinned to the door) at the entrance to a Flea Market. 😉 Have a look at Norm’s blog for more Thursday Doors and follow the blue link at the bottom of his post.
