Throughout the three day Irish food festival, there are lots of tantalising events for all to enjoy.

Throughout the city, for gourmets, there are Seafood trails, Foodie talks, Cooking demonstrations and tasting events in some of Galway’s best restaurants.

The main events are held within the Festival Marquee on Galway's Nimmo's Pier. Meet and make new friends sampling the Native Galway Oyster, watching the traditional 'Galway Hooker' sailboats parade by as sunset approaches and live music plays.

The Irish National and World Oyster Opening (shucking) Championships take place on the Friday and Saturday.
