Galway’s such a vibrant city, but during the Arts Festival it expolodes in a kaleidoscope of happenings, plays, comedy shows, live gigs and concerts. This year’s schedule for the festival is already seriously impressive with St. Vincent, Little Green Cars and John Grant amongst the first announcement. Book a few days off work and head west, it’s worth it even for the street parties and silent discos!
17th July – 19th July
If you’re Dublin-based, you don’t have to travel far for this one so it’s very handy as festivals go with just a hop, skip and a jump out to Marlay Park. They’ve got a whopper lineup this year which sees Caribou, Wild Beasts, Todd Terje, SBTRKT, Metronomy, Kaytranada, Hudson Mohawke playing, so it’s looking like it’ll be a good one.
23rd July – 26th July
It’s not just music that you may need recovery after.
