Looking for a dining experience with a difference? Join us for the Galway International Oyster and Seafood Festival’s Mardi Gras Gala dinner.

Always a highlight of the festival weekend, the evening treats you to a riotous, whirl wind tour of the City of Tribes as we enjoy a roving feast, with each course taking place in a different venue throughout the city.

Start the night right with a glass of bubbly and Kelly’s delicious oysters as you mingle with your fellow diners and admire each other’s masked mardi gras attire before moving onto the second venue of the evening.

Relax over your starter course and enjoy the local entertainment we have lined up.

The final leg of this culinary journey will see the masked revellers processing through the old cobbled streets of Galway’s medieval Latin Quarter and back to the Festival Marquee for a sit down feast of whole spit-roast Connemara lamb and a sumptuous dessert buffet. With dinner done, the party is far from over as we encourage you to dance till you drop as our band blast out all your favourite dance floor fillers

NB: Formal Mardi Gras attire is by no means necessary but we do encourage you to dress as extravagantly as you dare! It will be possible to purchase Mardi Gras masks in the Festival marquee during the daytime on Saturday, as well as at the first venue of the Mardi Gras Gala dinner
