Galway has a reputation for artistic creativity and a vibrant atmosphere all year round. Due in no small part to a full Calendar of Festivals and Events. The atmosphere in Galway is always fabulous, but nothing compares to when there’s a festival on! Festivals in Galway draw in the best talent, from both at home and abroad. From the Galway Food Festival at Easter, the Cuirt Literary Festival in April to action-packed July with the Galway Film Fleadh, the renowned Galway International Arts Festival and the unmissable Galway Races.
Later in the year are the Galway International Oyster Festival in September, the Baboró International Arts Festival for Children and the Comedy Festival in October swiftly followed by the Galway Christmas Market from mid-November.
