Galway 2020 Capital of Culture

Galway 2020 European Capital of Culture

2020 is set to be an important year as our neighboring city and county, Galway, is hosting the European Capital of Culture. Nestled in the heart of the Wild Atlantic Way, less than 90 minutes from the hotel, there has never been a better time to visit the cultural centre of Ireland.

Starting with a week-long festival, Imbolc, the celebrations will start on February 1st, St Brigid’s Day, with a turf cutting ceremony and then proceed across the county for seven nights, culminating in the city centre on Saturday 8th February.

Throughout the year, there will be events and projects hosted by the numerous community groups, art companies and cultural programme partners. Some notable highlights will be the Galway International Arts Festival in July and the Otherworld festival they have planned to coincide with Halloween. There will be spectacle throughout Galway all year long with street performers, live music, theatre events and modern art installations such as the Mirror Pavilion located on Claddagh Quay in Galway city and Derrigimlagh Bog in Connemara by celebrated Irish artist John Gerrard.

With over 1,900 events across 154 projects, this will be a year not to be missed. If you ever thought of visiting Galway, now is the time. Across the county, communities are coming together to bring their culture to life and celebrate everything Galway has to offer.

Insightful events spanning theatre, film, spoken word, performing arts, music, dance and modern art installations, there is something for everyone in the programme of events planned across the year. Based around the Celtic calendar of Imbolc, Bealtaine, Lughnasa and Samhain, the year long festival will run from February 2020 to the end of January 2021.
