Annually on the last week of September, the Galway International Oyster & Seafood festival takes place.
Stand-up comedy traditionally resides in the upstairs room of a pub but the Vodafone Comedy Festival presents an annual opportunity for acts and comedy enthusiasts to enjoy live stand up across multiple stages at the largest dedicated comedy event in the country.
Galway will see the return of the well admired Galway Continental Christmas Market this festive season. This market is a favourite amongst locals and the return of it to its rightful home in Eyre Square leaves everyone beaming.
