Promising plenty of seasonal treats and a festive atmosphere for all ages, the Galway Continental Christmas Market makes a welcome return to Eyre Square. The Market is similar to those held in mainland Europe and is the first of its kind in the West of Ireland. In 2012 Eyre Square will once again be transformed into a magical winter wonderland.

Wooden chalets retailing food, beverages, and European and Irish traders selling quality goods, to be enjoyed by all the family. There is something for everyone at this years market with live music, a Christmas Wishing tree, workshops, vintage amusements, face painting and storytelling.

The market also houses Santa’s Grotto in aid of the children’s charities ISPCC and Enable Ireland. Priced at €8 per child and as an optional extra, a photograph with Santa is an additional €6. The Grotto is opened Friday 4-7pm, Saturday 10am-10pm and Sunday 12-7pm.
