Autumn Hotel Breaks in Galway City
Galway Hotel Offer
Do you love capturing every moment on camera, or do you prefer to simply take it all in? Either way, The Hardiman, overlooking Eyre Square, is the perfect place to experience the stunning colours of Galway in the autumn. Dramatic skyscapes over Galway Bay, the gorgeous golden hues of the majestic trees - there are so many picture-perfect moments to experience.
You can get a bird’s eye view of this autumn splendour from The Treatment Rooms at The Hardiman. Located on the 5th floor overlooking the city, The Treatment Rooms feature a range of exquisite spa treatments and exclusive spa packages, plus a steam room, Jacuzzi and fabulous outdoor Canadian hot tub. What a way to experience autumn in Galway! Just lie back and take it all in.
You can’t visit Galway in autumn without trying an oyster washed down with some Guinness! Where better to do it than at our famous Galway International Oyster & Seafood Festival. Taking place in September, it’s the world’s longest running Oyster Festival, with seafood trails, cooking demonstrations, a Mardi Gras Gala and the much-anticipated World Oyster Opening Championships.
Galway is filled with lively pubs, where the country’s best musicians gather for a traditional Irish music session. Drop into Tig Coili, Tigh Neachtain, Taaffes or The Crane. They serve the best in Irish beer, coffee, whiskey and gin. Or check out the quirky O’Connor’s in Salthill, where Ed Sheeran’s ‘Galway Girl’ music video was shot. And if you don’t feel like travelling too far, O’Connell’s on Eyre Square, right across the street from The Hardiman, serves a great pint.
Kids will love the Baboró International Arts Festival for Children in mid-October. It celebrates fun and creativity, showcasing theatre, dance, music, visual arts and literature. And of course, there’s also the legendary Galway Jazz Festival featuring world-class musicians from around the globe.
The Hardiman is right at the heart of it all in autumn, with the Comedy Carnival in late-October pitching up right here on Eyre Square. Featuring over 70 shows and hundreds of the world’s funniest comedians, the Carnival’s centerpiece is a beautiful wooden ‘Spiegeltent’, located just feet from our Hotel.
