Proudly presented by the Galway City Business Association for the third consecutive year, the Galway Continental Christmas Market will be making a highly anticipated return to the City of the Tribes from November 23rd until December 22nd.

Running for five days longer than previous years, traders from all over Ireland and Europe will once again transform Eyre Square into a Winter Wonderland. The 2012 Galway Continental Christmas Market is set to bring a host of new and exciting additions. A jam-packed entertainment schedule with a  host of different events is promised for the Market's duration, including early entertainment from Galway’s top live bands and DJs, performers, puppet shows, storytelling, school choirs, carol singing together with charity and community events.

Once again, Santa's Grotto will be run by local charities and the popular Bier Keller will be playing host to various events throughout the duration of the market. The 2012 Market promises to be the most visually exciting yet with bedazzling lights and quirky Christmas installations and will be jam packed with festive treats, artisan food products and Christmas gift ideas from both local and European traders.
