Hello Christmas! The Galway Christmas Market is opening this Friday in the City of the Tribes and we can’t wait to get into the festive spirit.
Celebrating its eighth year, the Galway Continental Christmas Market will be running from Friday, November 17th to Friday, December 22nd.
Visitors to this year’s market can expect to enjoy a wide variety of entertainment and stalls located in Eyre Square in Galway City centre.
Amusement rides on offer include a Big Wheel, Helter Skelter and traditional Carousel, along with live music performers, puppet shows, storytelling, school choirs, carol singing together with charity and community events will feature.
Once again, Santa’s Grotto will be run by local charities and the popular Bier Keller will be playing host to various events in the run up to Christmas.
Food lovers can expect to feast on a host of warming dishes, inlcuding bratwurst, French pastries, pretzels, crêpes and waffles, while beer lovers can sample a stein at the German Bierkeller, offering a range of traditional German beers, apple cider and mulled wine.
The Galway Christmas Market played host to more than 350,000 visitors last year, so it’ll likely be another busy year. For more information, visit galwaytourism.ie.
