Warm Up to Galway International Arts Festival

Ireland’s most charming city comes alive every July, as extraordinary descends on its medieval streets. Galway International Arts Festival has been delighting, challenging and amazing locals and visitors alike for over 40 years, and GIAF 2018 promises to be no different.

If you're a GIAF regular or considering your first trip to Galway for its most magical time of year, let us show you what you can expect. Condé Nast Traveler Magazine calls Galway the "World's Friendliest City", and visitors can find much about the city to love - from its stunning landscapes and mouth-watering cuisines to its cobblestone streets and wealth of traditional Irish music spilling out of lively watering holes. 

This is all especially true during Festival season, as hundreds of thousands of visitors flock to Galway for GIAF's uniquely thrilling collection of theatre, music, street spectacle, dance, comedy, opera, visual art and disussion.

Many GIAF productions are in demand around the world and can be seen on tour. Visit https://www.giaf.ie/tours to learn more.
