The city of Galway has just confirmed that its famous Galway Christmas Market will take place this year! The famous Irish Christmas Market will be back in town from November 12 to December 21, 2021 on the side of Eyre Square! A good news, to relive the sweetness and the magic of the holidays in Ireland!

The Galway Christmas Market: a highly anticipated Christmas market in Ireland

4 weeks of fairs and attractions to celebrate Christmas!

Cancelled in 2020 because of the pandemic, the Galway Christmas market will be back this year! And the city has already stated that it is expecting a lot of people! It must be said that the last year of the market had been a success: with more than 650 000 visitors in 2019, and 50 wooden huts, the 2019 edition had been a great success.

The gradual return to normalcy in Ireland following the pandemic, should therefore allow the 2021 edition to operate fully.

And the program is tempting: Ferris wheel 32 meters high, Santa Claus express train, puppet show, readings of Christmas stories, live music … not to mention the Santa Claus grotto!

Add to that the presence of about fifty huts, where you will have the joy of tasting specialties: gourmet waffles, mulled wine, pancakes and much more! The exhibitors also offer handcrafted products as well as original ideas for Christmas gifts. In short: a great way to dive headfirst into the magic of the holidays… and bring back memories that will fill your head!

The market is open to the whole family from November 12 to December 21, 2021 on Eyre Square in downtown Galway. Here are the hours:

  • Monday to Wednesday: from 12 to 8 pm
  • from Thursday to Sunday : from 10 am to 10 pm

Don’t hesitate to go there: Galway is simply magical during the Christmas period!
