Located on the NUI Galway campus across from the Galway Cathedral, the Heineken Big Top at Fisheries Field is now a famous landmark for the Festival. With a vibrant outdoor vibe, a bar, and lots of room to dance and mingle, this is one of the more popular music spots for the Festival.
The Heineken Big Top is wheelchair accessible.
Car parking is available in nearby city car parks.
The nearest car park is in Cathedal Square near the Galway Cathedral, which is walking distance from Fisheries Field. This car park is open day and night and usual parking fees apply up to 18.30.
Please note that the Cathedral's car park on the grounds of the Cathedral (separate to the one listed above) across from the Heineken Big Top venue closes at 18.45 sharp. The Festival is not affilliated with the car park, and to release your car after this time costs €20 on top of the fee you paid. If you park your car inside the car park before any Heineken Big Top gig, you will be charged an extra €20 at the barrier when exiting the car park.
