Galway Summer Festival

Monday, 31 July — Sunday, 06 August 2017

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.
