The Galway International Arts Festival is the Festival of extraordinary experiences, a creative collision of performance, music, visual art, theatre and spectacle. Whether turning a small Irish city on its head for two weeks, taking work on an international tour, or being a forceful year-round presence, every experience of the Galway International Arts Festival is an unforgettable encounter.

Strolling along the cobbled streets, every turn offers the possibility for new adventure; surreal giant puppets snaking through the streets, enchanting music, enthralling musicans and awe-inspiring street theatre.

Gates Open at 8am. Site plan if you need it. I heard on the radio that even if you spent 3 days there you wouldn't be able to see it all, so make your choices wisely.

Our latest guest review from Anniek:

Nice apartments. Big and clean. Great view Great location. Because of the good weather it was too warm
in the apartments and because we were on a low level we could not leave windows open at night.
Parking spaces at the back of the apartments were very narrow. For the rest I would rate it very high.

When do you put your Christmas decorations up?

In Ireland this year there is a hot discussion in media about when is it the right time to start the festive season. We all know shops start to display the Christmas stock just after Halloween. The charity radio station Christmas FM has bounded back onto the airwaves from 1st December.

What's your opinion? Are you one of the people who get fed-up with the start of Christmas craze earlier every year? Do you think it’s all just too commercial now? Are you bored of Christmas by the time it actually arrives? Share it with us on our Facebook page if you wish.

We put up our Christmas tree just the other day and we love it!
