Food lovers can feast on a wide selection of treats, everything from German Bratwurst, Traditional Crepes, Irish handmade fudge, Chocolate fountain, Chimney cakes and other indulgent confectionery from over 60 traders with traditional mulled wine and beer served in steins at the popular Christmas drinking destination the Galway Christmas Market beer tent. Also on offer are a broad range of Artisan traders showcasing handmade crafts which make for the perfect Christmas gift.

Families and friends can enjoy a walk through the enchanted light gardens providing the backdrop for a Christmas Market photo, stop off at Santa’s postbox, interact with local charities and much more.
