It's the vibrancy of the culture in Ireland's West that makes it so very special. Galway is truly known as the Cultural Heart of Ireland, The European Region of Gastronomy 2018 and The European Capital of Culture for 2020. Festivals and events are plentiful throughout the year, featuring everything from music and dance, to the arts, walking, horse racing and of course, world famous Oysters! Whatever your fancy, caviar and champagne or oysters and Guinness, you’re not at the races if you’re not at The Twelve, one of the finest boutique hotels Galway
has to offer.
