Galway Arts Festival
Held every July, the Galway Arts Festival delivers one of Ireland’s premier arts festivals that includes theater, dance, comedy, music, visual arts, and glorious street performance like the scenes from the parade featured in the video above.
It’s a lovely time to be in Galway. Accommodations can be limited at peek times, so it’s a good idea to book in advance (although I managed get a room at a B&B within walking distance of city centre by just walking up).
And as an added bonus, here’s another segment on street performers.
