The focus of the festival is to encourage people to try a variety of gin and tonic brands now available on the market, from Irish to international creations. There will also be a focus on the education side of how gin is made for both the trade and public, learning about the perfect serve when choosing garnishes and how tonics enhance the flavour of your drink. Put simply, you’ll be a ‘ginius’ at the end of the festival.

Galway is renowned as the city of festivals and Gin Fest is the perfect opportunity for both locals and visitors to the city to explore the vibe of The Latin Quarter.
