Galway Art Festival

Add this one to your bucket list people, Galway Arts Festival is the business!

First of all, there are amazing, bedazzling free events happening all over our hostel!

Check out fire-breathing dragons, accompanied by music as they travel from Eyre Square through the heart of the city to the Spanish Arch, and make sure to see high flying trapeze act performing on a huge circus rig thirty-five feet above the audience over Eyre Square! If this is not enough, there are free circus acts as well as heliosphere and light-walkers! We can’t wait!!!

We are especially looking forward to the dance theatre performance of The Rite of Spring and Petrushka! It is bound to be absolutely stunning! This is Irish Premier, so make sure to snap of your tickets earlier rather than later!
