Galway Hotel Offer
With city-centre parks, a stunning coastline and meandering promenades, Galway is glorious in the summer. At The Hardiman we take full advantage of the delicious in-season produce to create light summer dishes that sing with wonderfully fresh flavours. The Oyster Lounge becomes a focal point for Galway’s social scene, with people stopping in for a cocktail before spilling out into the balmy evenings for some summer fun.
Galway City truly comes to life during the summer months, as buskers fill the streets with sound and vibrant festivals celebrating art, music, and culture take place across the city.
There’s the Galway Early Music Festival in May, showcasing medieval, Renaissance and Baroque music; the Galway Sessions - a celebration of Irish folk and traditional music in June; or the Galway Film Fleadh in July, featuring the best of Irish and international cinema.
Expect the unexpected at The Hardiman in July, with spectacular street theatre performances on Eyre Square, during the world-renowned Galway International Arts Festival. You’ll also find live music and al-fresco dining in the laid-back Festival Garden. The 14-day Festival features over 200 events, including theatre, circus, music and visual arts.
Galway’s summer season reaches its peak with the Galway Races Summer Festival in late July/early August. One of the best-loved race meetings in the world, it attracts fashion lovers and horse racing fans from across the globe.
Whether you prefer to venture off the beaten track and explore your own way or join a group led by an expert guide, take the time to discover the scenic Connemara region’s rugged mountains, crystal clear lakes, beautiful beaches and historic castles. Tour buses are available just steps from The Hardiman in its unrivalled central location.
