The European Capital of Culture

Galway City on the western edge of Europe is Ireland’s beating cultural heart and the European Capital of Culture for 2020.

Since 2015, when Galway was announced The European Capital of Culture, artists have been working around the clock, creating over 1200 events and activities that will be taking place throughout the year to highlight the richness and diversity of Galway’s culture and its people.

Galway 2020 Programme

Galway International Arts Festival 2020

Plan your trip early and discover Galway’s cultural and artistic background. 2020 will be a promising year with artists and events happening throughout the entire county from small villages, countryside to the busy city centre.

There will also be the annual Galway International Arts Festival 2020 and the popular Galway Races. Clayton Hotel Galway is the perfect location to enjoy a trip to Galway, only minutes from the city. You can spend your day roaming around the cobbled streets of Galway, soaking up all the music, arts, shopping, then come back to relax, away from the busy hustle-and-bustle of the city.

With a great Tribes Restaurant or Enclosure Bar, you’ll have many great culinary choices on site. Our 25-meter pool, sauna, and gym also provide a great atmosphere to unwind and spend some time to yourself or with your family.
