Imagine a village where the town soundtrack is the symphony of creaking dock lines, and every day is sweetly punctuated by the smell of salt on the breeze. A place where the docks are energized each morning by fishermen unloading their catch — which will invariably end up in a dimly lit pub as the afternoon fish and chips. Here in the town of Roundstone Harbor between the cities of Galway and Clifden, everyday life is the main attraction in this sleepy town by the coast. Aside from the refreshing natural beauty that’s intrinsic to small Irish towns, Roundstone is known for its artisan community of sculptures, painters, and jewelers. Given the gorgeous natural seascape and mountains that loom behind town, it’s no surprise that the coastal village is a source of creative inspiration. Between the clouds lingering over Inishnee island across the calm gray waters, and the red of trawlers bobbing on the tide that laps the emerald green shore, when taking a stroll through Roundstone Harbor, it’s almost as if you’ve entered one of the paintings that line the shops on shore.
