When a quiet pint turns into an evening of escapes and heavy drinking, you might wake up feeling a bit fragile. The colloquial term for this is ‘experiencing a hangover.’ Sometimes a night out in Galway is just too tempting to turn down! If you’ve woken up all out of sorts and are looking for ways to dilute the brain fog, and stop the head from pounding, check out this list of things that might heal a hangover.
Hydrate Hydrate Hydrate
Waking up after a night out, you're sure to be feeling a bit woosy and weak. One of the most important things to do is make sure you rehydrate yourself. Drink lots of water and make sure to rehydrate throughout the day. Another helpful tip is to replenish your electrolytes. It's not a magic cure, but it will minimize the symptoms! This isn't the first time we've wandered into the shop and picked up a Lucozade Sport... and it won't be the last.
Get yourself a fry-up
Another tried and true way to feel better after a night out is a classic fry-up. You may be feeling a bit weak in the stomach, but trust us you need to get some nutrients in you! With loads of protein and easy to digest food, this brekkie will get you on the right track to feeling like yourself again. Galway has so many delicious cafés and restaurants that serve up a delicious breakfast. Seven Bar, Taaffes Bar, and Chef Laura Rosso are just a handful of Galway restaurants that have an amazing breakfast.

Get your nap on
Sometimes all you need to do is sleep it off. You were up late - you deserve to have a lazy day! Take all the time you need, and get some shut eye. Sleeping off the nausea and headache is an easy way to let your body recover. There's sometimes no better feeling than getting cosy in bed and letting all that hangxiety melt away. While you're there, put on a show or movie you love and take your mind off the night before. Binge drinking to binge watching is a pretty direct pipeline in this day and age.
A self-care day?
Taking a day to recover is a great way to get back on track. It doesn't need to go to extremes, but even a hot shower to wash off all the ickiness you're feeling will do wonders. We call it self-care because that's what it is; put yourself first and shake off the night from before. You can even throw on some comfy clothes and a nice face-mask! Reset and relax today!
Takeaway is necessary
You're sure to still be craving some delicious and comforting grub. Luckily for you, Galway is full of amazing takeaway options. You don't even need to venture far from the comfort of your own couch. There are so many delicious restaurants that you can order from! Whether you're craving pizza, burgers, Asian food, or anything in-between the Galway restaurants are here and ready to get you through the day. It's really one of the best feelings to enjoy a quality meal from the comfort of your own home. If you're looking for a list of amazing Galway takeaways, we have one for you right here!

Hindsight is 20/20
Too little too late, we know. But for next time anyways, it makes such a difference when you take some precautions before a night out. One of the biggest tips is to make sure you aren't going out on an empty stomach! Eat plenty of food and drink plenty of water before you hit the town. Another useful tip is to drink water throughout the night. Switching between pints of the good stuff to pints of water will make a world of a difference the next morning. You know yourself better than anyone else, so if you want to avoid this feeling next time around, tune into how you're feeling.
