My favorite things about my cities

Galway is my home city and is Ireland's cultural capital. Festival after festival abounds from Saint Patrick's weekend right thoughout the year. It is full of many gifted and talented artists, being an artistic and musical hub. World-famous theater and groups like Macnas ensure it is well represented on the international stage. The locals are very friendly and the city has been voted among the friendliest on earth! Its small size invites the visitor in, who can easily get lost and distracted in Galway's medieval alleys and sidestreets.
Dublin is Ireland's capital and its historical past is everywhere. It has so much history on every street corner with iconic buildings like the General Post Office, Kilmainham Jail and Trinity college all just crying out to be photographed. It is another city absolutely loaded with gifted artists and has produced greats like U2, the Dubliners and so many more too numerous to mention. Its size is not too overwhelming but there is plenty of public transport, if needed. And then there is Guinness and the poetry that comes with it!
Ancient Limerick is sometimes overlooked but at your peril! Great nightlife and its pretty Georgian streets by the Shannon with the magnificent Saint John's castle will charm anyone into submission. Again, history and culture are everywhere to be found. It is also amajor Irish sporting hub,being the home of Munster rugby, where victory was achieved over the All Blacks in 1979. Limerick folk will remember that one!
