This week’s installment brings us an MTV Cribs inspired post, #mlkinire style. The following shots are of my apartment and surrounding neighborhood to give a better idea of my new digs in Galway City (apt shots were taken last week when I first moved in, I swear):
Williams Street leading up to my apartment. I live on top of a Dunnes Store, which little did I know is like a home goods / grocery super store combined. Extremely fortunate to have this right outside my front door.
Door to my building on the lower right. I am surrounded by boutique female clothing stores. I can already feel my Irish fashion sense improving.
Around the corner from my place is Shop St, where all the action is.
Roof top terrace leading up to my front door, down on the right.
Construction site outside my building. Not much progress in the last 100 or so years I don’t think. God bless the endearing Irish.
View of city outside my bedroom window.
Front door of the new pad.
Bedroom #2 – first guest to claim the room can decorate to your heart’s desire.
Surprisingly lucked out with a shower that accommodates an oversized American!
Living room – apartments come furnished with basic couches, tables, etc. Makes it much easier moving in from across the world.
Sadly no nap couches suitable for the 6ft+ population.
Looking forward to many SmartBear family dinners here. Will need to add cooking skills to my current job req’s.
Kitchen – Sha I need you to work your magic in here!
One of the few pieces I brought over with me. Providing daily inspiration.
Kane / Fitz family signs. One of my goals in my time in Ireland is to track down our family history / roots. Thought these pieces would be a good start. Any family reading this that can provide clues as to where I should start please leave a comment below.
Sunset from roof top looking out at the city.
Selfie time on Shop st earlier today. I love this town.
Hopefully these pictures give a better idea of where I’ve recently run off to. Stay tuned for more shots as I continue to explore the city and surrounding areas of beautiful IRE.
Until next time.
