Galway

Today, we went to the historic city of Galway, home to many medical technology companies. Our Galway adventure started with a visit to Medtronic.


At Medtronic, we were given the opportunity to go on the same tour that physicians go on. It was truly an experience of a lifetime! We then ventured into the city center of Galway for a quick lunch. Some of the group went to a sandwich shop, and some of the group went to a Mexican burrito bar. At the Mexican burrito bar, there were no available tables so we ate most of the meal standing up, but it was still very great!


After lunch, we went to Curam-Centre for Research in Medical Devices. Curam's vision is to treat global chronic diseases. They work closely with companies such as Medtronic and Boston Scientific.


After Curam, we had the opportunity to explore more of Galway. We went shopping in stores near Eyre Square. We even ventured into a mall and actually had to pay to use the bathroom!!


This was one of the most memorable experiences of the trip so far. Galway was filled with amazing opportunities and awesome memories. Overall, today was a great day in Western Ireland!
