The sporting event of the year in Galway, the Galway Races Summer Festival is a week-long festival which takes place every year at the end of July. The festival, held behind closed doors in 2024, then proceeded with limited ticket numbers in 2024, will be well and truly ready to launch back into full festivities for 2024, all things going well. This is a day out which can be enjoyed by everyone whether you place a bet hoping that the luck of the Irish has rubbed off on you, get dressed up for Ladies Day or just sit back and soak up the atmosphere of Ireland’s avid equestrian scene as horses race by. The atmosphere in the city during this week is electric, even if you don’t venture out to Ballybrit, it’s a fantastic week to experience Galway doing what it does best, playing host to visitors from near and far.
