Welcome to The Galway Christmas Market 2015


Welcome to the Galway Christmas Market, Ireland’s largest and longest running festive market. From Friday 20th November until Tuesday 22nd December 2015 Galway city will be transformed into a winter wonderland! Eyre Square is once again at the heart of festivities and new for 2015 is the Christmas Market hub at the Spanish Arch, just off Quay Street.

Market goers can browse the wooden chalets brimming with crafts, toys, jewellery, cosmetics, decorations and plenty of stocking fillers. For the foodies tuck into a bratwurst, taste a selection of French pastries or pretzels with the tempting scents wafting through the Christmas village.

Sample a stein at the German Bierkeller, sip on a warming cup of hot chocolate or mulled wine at the cosy bars and coffee docks. There is also an array of vintage carousels and amusements, along with live entertainment and plenty of festive cheer for all the family to experience.

To explore Galway by train aboard the Santa Express and discover the sights of the city, where the yuletide ambience continues through the cobbled streets of Galway lined with busting shops, bars, hotels and restaurants all sharing the magic of Christmas in Galway.
