beat of the feet Galwaychristmas cheer is here

It’s not even Halloween and we are already excited about Christmas here in the Hotel. Our Christmas Parties are almost fully booked out and they promise to be a big hit again this year. They are terrific value for groups with a mulled wine reception, festive four course dinner, live band and dj, photo booth and a magician all for just €35. We also have fantastic room rates for party goers on those night’s so you don’t have far to travel home after your party.

Galway is a wonderful place especially at Christmas, the now famous Christmas Market begins on November 17th and runs until the week before Christmas. It’s fantastic for all the family to be able to see the city from the ferris wheel or shop in the fantastic and diverse arrangement of stalls. For younger members of the family they will love Elf Town which this year is taking place in Ballybrit out at the Racecourse. Santa and his helpers now have more room than ever to play and have fun. The tour, which lasts roughly ninety minutes, will enthral and excite kids and create memories that they will cherish forever.
