Festivals and events – Féilte agus imeachtaí
Galway has officially been announced as the European Capital of Culture 2020. It is known as the City of the Tribes and really is a true capital of festivals. It is the first bilingual city in Ireland, and being situated along magical Wild Atlantic Way, it is home to thousands of tourists annually who are attracted to the city because of its multicultural atmosphere and popular festivals. With food festivals, racing festivals and arts festivals to name but a few, there certainly is something to suit every taste.
The first few months of the year are consumed by festivals such as the annual St. Patricks day festival in March and the famous Galway Food Festival. Following this, festivals take place all the way through until the Comedy Festival in October. The Galway Film Fleadh precedes the two largest events of the year, the Galway International Arts Festival and the Galway Races in July & early August.
Galway is also home to many more festivals including the Galway International Oyster Festival, the Galway Sessions Festival, Baboró Children’s Festival, and much more. Galway certainly is a festival lover’s dream come true. Why not soak up this magical atmosphere and enjoy a luxury stay at Clayton Hotel Galway.
