A lively city throughout the year, all eyes are on Galway especially for the months of July & August - whatever your taste or passion, there is something for you and your friends to enjoy. Thanks to a number of festivals, even just a stroll through the city's streets brings a burst of colour and energy.
Think buskers, flame throwers, stilt walkers, street performers: quite simply, anything goes, and you will be delighted that so much can be enjoyed for free. Screenings of major films take place during the Galway Film Fleadh in unique venues such as the Town Hall Theatre. Acclaimed names from the music industry play at the Festival Big Top during the Galway International Arts Festival.
The end of July and start of August brings the Galway Races. See a parade of glamour and style like no other as thousands descend on Ballybrit Race Course for the races and entertainment. After the races themselves, it's straight to The Galmont Hotel for the best free entertainment in Galway.
Throughout the entire summer, you will be swept away by the energy and atmosphere on the streets from morning to night. Galway is simply magical, so just come and experience it for yourself.
And of course, The Galmont Hotel is the place to stay to ensure you are close to all the action.
