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

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.

Each week two different charities join us at the Christmas Market in our charity cabins. That will be 10 charities in total taking part this year by the time we finish at the end of next week This week it is the turn of Galway Simon Community who treated us to a very special carol singing session, Galway style, yesterday evening. This is Redmond Connolly and you can find out more about the song and how he is using it to fundraise for Galway Simon Community and give a donation to combat homelessness here: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/redmond-connolly. Many thanks to Justin and Max for capturing this on video and sharing it with us.
