Open Mic at the Róisín Dubh presents a fantastic line-up of original Galway music, live at Galway Summer Garden featuring fantastic artists such as Aoibheann, Denis Mockler, Dustry Strings, Niamh Ní Mheara and Claire and Aidan. We all enjoyed their fabulous online Open Mics during lockdown, so now seize the chance to see them live this Thursday in Salthill!

For just €10, you can book a ticket to attend the live show on the outdoor stage. Or you can rent a luxury bell-tent with mates to make it a real VIP experience. So join us under The Garden’s new stretch to enjoy some live music, have a boogie and catch up with your mates at Galway’s most exciting new festival venue.

Open Mic Night’s ambition is to provide the perfect launchpad for musicians in Galway city and beyond. They have a dedicated sound-engineer and musicians can use their house guitar or bring along their own instrument. But the best part is the atmosphere! They are determined to create an open and welcoming ambiance for people to come in and try out their ideas and to do so with encouragement. This has been made possible by the truly fantastic crowds that have come in every Sunday over the past few years. Everyone is given attention, support and a chance to do their thing! Primarily located in the upstairs bar at Roisin Dubh, though they gatecrash the main-stage downstairs on the first Wednesday of every month for “Open Mic Presents…”, which gives a selected three of their regular performers the unique opportunity to get a feel for a grander set up. Since lockdown they have been bringing the Open Mic night online and now they bring some of their favourite regulars to Galway Summer Garden.

Galway Summer Garden is a fabulous new project which sees a green space in Salthill transformed into a lush, vibrant festival garden, perfect for catching up with friends or having small family parties. This colourful entertainment hub will consist of luxury bell tents that can be booked out for an entire evening for groups of up to 6, allowing for safe, socially distanced, yet relaxed get-togethers. If you’re missing those festival vibes and want to get the gang back together, head over to their website or call 091 394396 to book your place for this weekend!
