Things to do in Galway
December is a magical time of year, especially in Galway with our Christmas Festival, pedestrianised shopping streets, atmospheric bars and buzzing cafés.
Whether you prefer to stay cosied up inside on cold winter nights or go out exploring the city sights, let Galway’s festive twinkling lights guide you on a winter adventure. You don’t need to travel too far. The famous Galway Christmas Market in Eyre Square, is right on your doorstep. Its stalls are brimming with gorgeous gifts and treats. Try the traditional chimney cake or some tasty Irish fudge. If you’re brave enough, take a night-time spin on the 105 feet high observation wheel with spectacular views of the city skyline. Or pop into the popular Bier Keller for a traditional German beer.
