Looking for a dining experience with a difference? Join us for a roving feast, with each course taking place in a different venue across the city.  

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 with a welcome reception in our first venue and mingle with your fellow diners over a glass of Prosecco and Kelly’s delicious oysters and admire each other’s masked mardi gras attire before moving onto the second venue of the evening.

Then amble your way to our second venue, in the company of our entertainers and relax over your starter course accompanied by music and stories of Galway. 

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 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
