Festival Garden 2018

This year GIAF welcomes family and friends to join us in the Festival Garden in the heart of Eyre Square where you can enjoy a chilled out atmosphere with great food and drinks as well as occasional DJs and live sets from guest artists.

Think: Galway's livingroom, a chilled out zone where you can kick back, take your shoes off and discover the magic of community. At the Festival Garden you can get refreshing drinks and food that is sweet and savoury and accommodates the full spectrum from carnivore to vegan.

Keep an eye on our social media for details about pop-up performances that will feed the soul's appetite for magic and the unexpected. A space to share festival experiences, learn about the region's gastro-economy, read, or funnel the energy and inspiration of your day into a new poem or short story.

You can also buy tickets at the Box Office, pick up some Festival merchandise or just get your Festival questions answered.
