Hi! I'm Krista, and I moved to Galway in the beginning of the year to start anew in Ireland with my Scottish boyfriend. I love exploring new cities on foot, taking in the sights & sounds, and discovering those "off the beaten path" hideaways you don't often read about in a tourist brochure. I'm a big fan of outdoor adventures, fitness, cooking, food, coffee, tea and finding out which cafe in Galway makes the BEST almond milk latte. Brunch is always a good idea, and I'm pretty certain I have a few solid recommendations if you happen to be in town.
I work for Failte Ireland, at the Tourist Office and also moonlight as a personal trainer and fitness instructor, where I conduct bootcamp on the beach in Salthill early Sunday mornings. I welcome the chance to learn new things, explore new cultures and discover the rich history that Galway has to offer - in turn, sharing it with you!
Originally from the USA, I have lived throughout New England, London and even would say I have a bit of Edinburgh knowledge up my sleeve. Galway, Ireland is my current home and although I am relatively new here, I have immersed myself in the beauty of this fine city, having taken on the local culture as if it were my own. I love exploring the city on foot, finding those hidden gems you can brag about to your friends. Cafe exploring is also at the top of my favorite past times, in addition to finding the best bites, and a pub to catch live music sessions over a pint (or two). I find fulfillment in sharing my knowledge of the festival activities, local attractions, entertainment, outdoor adventures, various types of accommodation to fit any budget, and planning your itinerary including how to get here or to your next destination.
I would welcome the chance to customize recommendations and provide the best experience for any future visitors.
