The 2019 A-List FAM to Galway and the Shannon region

Meet in Ireland treated this year's A-Listers to axe-throwing, gun dog trials and a trip to the country's most Instagrammed location.

The A-Listers flew to Shannon Airport and were taken to Moran's Oyster Cottage for some fresh oysters. The dining didn't stop there as they were taken on a food tour through Galway City eating plenty of local produce. 

That evening, our A-Listers dined at Ard Bia and played traditional Irish music in one of Galway's pubs, with the day culminating in a stay at the five-star G Hotel and Spa. 

Day two started with a visit to Emily Jean Atelier for a millinery experience in Moycullen, Co. Galway. The hats changed from high fashion to the woolly variety when the group were taken on a discovery tour of Fanore Beach with Orangeworks. 

After lunch, the group visited the stunning Cliffs of Moher - Ireland's most Instagrammed location - for a hot whisky challenge.

After a few stiff drinks with an incredible view, the group were treated to a traditional horse and hound welcome and champagne reception at Adare Manor, Co. Limerick. The luxury didn't stop there, with dinner in Adare Manor's Michelin Star restaurant concluding the evening. 

Day three began with a hotel and grounds tour of the five-star Adare Manor, experiencing gun dog trials, off-road driving and axe throwing. 

All that axe throwing meant a well-deserved seafood lunch at Alex Findlater & Co. in Limerick before flying back home that afternoon.
