Galway Summer Festival

Monday, 30 July — Sunday, 05 August 2018

The Galway Festival is legendary and the highlight of the Summer Racing Season in Ireland.

It would appear that all of Ireland converges on Galway for this weeklong extravaganza along with family and friends from overseas. Well after the day’s racing is over, the Festival continues throughout the county in the pubs and restaurants catering for every taste and where talk of racing continues long into the night.

Flexible Holiday Arrangement:

High Tide, Galway

Tailor-made holiday and short break arrangements are available to tie in around the Festival. We offer a selection of welcoming B & Bs in the Salthill area of Galway City — approx 15 mins walk from the centre. All rooms are en-suite and serve a hearty Irish breakfast. Alternative accommodation in Hotels or Self–Catering homes is available. Racing admission can be pre-booked. This is advisable for the feature days. A race day shuttle operates between Galway city centre and
the racecourse — details are provided with your confirmed arrangement.
