Christmas Market Galway
15th Nov - 23nd Dec 2019
Christmas in Galway starts at 6 pm on Friday 22nd November with a new format. It's never too early to plan your winter break and with Galway fast becoming the best Christmas Wonderland in Ireland, a midweek break or weekend escape to Galway may be the perfect answer to your winter blues.
The Galway Christmas Market is based at Eyre Square with the 'Galway EYE' offering birds-eye views of our the 2020 European City of Culture, in addition to the foods & crafts and fun-filled Bierkeller. There will also be a family panto show in the Town Hall Theatre.
Building on the successful format of previous years, the Galway Christmas market will be a hive of activity with lots of entertainment from 22nd November to 22nd December 2019. Among the many popular features due to make a welcome return to the market are the music stage hosting choirs and carollers, children’s workshops, amusements and of course Santa! Always a draw, the large German Bierkeller will return to the heart of the market offering a wide range of traditional fine German Beers. Over fifty traders from all over Ireland and Europe will be selling a host of crafts, festive food, treats and Christmas gift ideas, while the expected audience of up to 650,000 market-goers can also enjoy a live entertainment programme throughout the month-long event.
The Galway Christmas market is open 7 days a week and trading hours are 12h00 - 20h00 Mon-Wed and 10h00 – 22h00 Thurs – Sun.
