1.Walk…Walk….Walk

Once it gets dark, take a walk from the West end, up through the Latin Quarter, through Shop Street and into Eyre Square. The Christmas lights are the nicest they’ve ever been in the city! Grab a coffee, take a walk and admire all the beautiful lights and decorations! A sure way to get into the Christmas spirit!

2. Visit the Galway Christmas Market

Located in Eyre Square, the Galway Christmas Market is a mix of stalls selling food, drinks, crafts and decorations! The Beer Tent is the centre point and always has a great atmosphere! Worth a visit for a stein of beer or a hot whiskey! The new addition of the Ferris Wheel makes for an impressive skyline!

The Meyrick Hotel, located in Eyre Square, is impressively decorated and is a focal point in Eyre Square! They serve Mulled wine in the lobby, where you can sit back, relax by the fire and admire the beautiful tree and gingerbread house.

The G hotel serves a festive afternoon tea each day from the 25th of November to 8th January. They serve delicious sweet and savoury treats with a choice of tea, coffee or cocktail! The G is beautifully decorated in it’s own uniquely stylish way and a perfect place to spend a Christmassy afternoon!!
