Sample some tasty treats from the Food Village. A host of food stalls will offer a range of refreshments for visitors. Take the opportunity to have a seat and soak up the festival atmosphere.

As 2018 celebrates Galway as the European Region of Gastronomy, the Food Village will celebrate the city’s food heritage and culture. From oysters, to wild salmon and even seaweed – Galway is well-known for its rich marine offerings.

The Gastronomy Showcase Van will host seafood cooking classes and demonstrations from Galway food producers and restaurateurs. Learn some tips from Galway Bay Seafoods and GMIT about preparing and preserving seafood at home, as well as some simple seafood recipes for kids.

In partnership with Udarás Na Gaeltachta, a cookery demonstration presented in Irish will also be held each day at the Gastronomy Showcase Van. The demonstration will use Gaeltacht ingredients from the land and sea.
