Galway Food Festival
Celebrating Galway as a good food destination, 2017 will be the 5th year of the Galway Food Festival. The festival will promote good food and good food outlets in Galway, as well as showcasing food producers based in Galway and in the West. The festival takes place in April primarily as it is the time of year when some of the best local ingredients become available, such as Connemara Spring Lamb, and trout and salmon caught locally.
