corrib river cruise galway

On my last visit to Galway I took a trip on the River Corrib and it was definitely a treat. The weather was dry and the landscape beautiful. We were not the only ones to take to the water, as you can see from the photo below.

There is a bar on board the Corrib Princess famous for it’s Irish Coffee, so of course we had to sample it.

With a choice of Bailey’s Coffee, Tequila Coffee or the award winning Irish Coffee it was tempting to order all three. However, bearing in mind I was on a boat I decided to stick with just the one and I have to say the Irish Coffee was the best I’ve ever tasted. (Apologies to my son Stephen, who makes a mean Irish Coffee).  Out of five of us, one chose the Bailey’s Coffee and said it was wonderful. You can see from the next image just how much of a treat those lovely beverages were.

  3. Nice! The best Irish coffee I’ve ever had was in a small taverna on Harbor Road on the island of Crete. Of the three choices you had, I think I would have ordered all three, boat or no boat. (“Please pass the life vest.”) 🙂

    • Connemara is wild and wonderful. You would love the Burren in Clare, too.

        Oh I have been there 🙂 The Burren is my favorite place, when the weather is dry and the rocks turn almost white.

        • We lived in Clare for about fourteen years and took many trips to the Burren. We used to camp at Fanore, near Ballyvaughan. On one occasion we caught so much mackerel there that we traded it in the local pub for pints.

            Wow, such great memories! I would love to catch a mackerel. Did you have a boat?
            I want to go to Ennis next year, and find the family of a photographer who died untimely a few years ago. He loved The Burren and knew every orchid and any other flora, and he was a great friend on Panoramio before the Google bought it. You know how it is – someone stop posting, and you think they’re just taking a break, and then after a year you find out they are gone.

            • That’s so sad about your friend. I hope you get to meet his family. We didn’t have a boat, we fished from the rocks. When they heard about it in the pub nearby, the next day there were dozens of people trying to catch mackerel but the shoal had gone elsewhere. We had to eat the fish over the next two days as we were camping and had no way to freeze them.


I'd love to hear from you.
