17th to the 30th of July 2023
Easily regarded as Galway’s most famous and most popular festival, the Galway International Arts Festival (GIAF) was first established over 40 years ago. Since then the festival has evolved into a world-renowned, annual, two-week long festival which showcases some of the finest artists, musicians and performers who hail from every corner of Ireland, and from all around the world. To give you an idea of the sheer size of the festival, the GIAF hosted a monumental 200 events, in a whopping 30 venues, which attracted over 250,000 people to the hallowed streets of Galway City, over two mighty weeks in July 2023. This is a festival not to be missed, with an impressive line up on sale for the Heineken Big Top.
