It’s not just in Dublin that Christmas is celebrated: Galway also has its own Christmas market! Named “Galway Christmas Market” in the language of Shakespeare, it is one of the most eagerly awaited events every year! On this occasion, shopkeepers invade Eyre Square, open their mini-cabins and offer visitors a wide range of products and dishes to celebrate the festive season. A very warm event!
The Galway Christmas Market offers many activities that will delight young and old alike! Beyond the simple pleasure of strolling through the chalets and discovering the artisanal products on offer, you can enjoy a good cup of chocolate or mulled wine while dancing to Christmas carols until the end of the night! The children, for their part, will no doubt squint at the toys sold on the stands, and insist on leaving their letter to Santa Claus by posting it in the “Santa Claus Cave”.
Better still, you will be able to treat yourself to succulent dishes, offered by some of the chalets. On the programme, foie gras, cheese, cold cuts and seafood! Not forgetting the appetizing pastries on offer!
Galway’s Christmas Market is a must, so you can have a great time with your family and experience the magic of Christmas! Don’t hesitate to visit the market, you’ll suddenly be overwhelmed by the special atmosphere of the festive season!
