Welcome to Christmas Market Galway

Ireland’s premier Christmas Market is set to take place again this year in Eyre Square, Galway, November 17th to December 22nd 2017. 

Opening hours:

Monday – Wednesday: 12pm to 8pm

Thursday – Saturday :   10am to 10pm

Sunday:   10am to 8pm

This will be the 8th edition of this hugely popular event which has been produced by Galway based event producers Milestone Inventive since 2011.

Building on the success of 2016, the market will once again feature the massively popular Bier Keller and the 32m observation wheel will make a welcome return.  Santa will be in residence and gifts and stocking fillers will include hand blown glass ornaments, wooden toys and jigsaws, paper stars, jewellery and accessories, wood sculptures, ceramics and all manner of seasonal indulgent treats including the ever-popular Czech chimney cakes, classic French crepes, authentic Belgian waffles, German bratwurst and gluhwein, donuts, handmade Italian chocolates, candied nuts and Irish fudge.

The Galway Christmas Market is now packed away for another 11 months of hibernation. Galway Christmas Market, now in its eighth year in residence in Eyre Sq, is firmly established as a feature of the Christmas season. With 65% of our participants being local, this truly is a home-grown Galway event. We have enlisted some well-known local friends and neighbours of the market to help us to share a sense of the sights, sounds and atmosphere of this annual magical month in Eyre Sq. Thanks to Justin Mc Carthy, Michelle Lally, Connacht Rugby, Marc Roberts, Roisin Dubh, Tiny Dancer by A Song for Lily-Mae, Mocha Beans, Galway Simon Community, Anthony Ryans and Fallers Jewellers The View Wheel for being great sports and helping us out with this. We'd like to thank all those who took part this year - traders, charities, artisan producers and performers. Particular thanks goes to Galway City Council for all their help in enabling the Christmas magic to happen. Nollaig Shona agus Athbhliain faoi Mhaise Daoibh go léir! Love from all the team at Milestone Inventive
