The conference programme promises to be an exciting one and, in tandem with it, will be the opportunity to experience the many arts and cultural events that are organised during July in Galway City, including the Galway Film Fleadh, Galway Arts Festival and much more!
Galway is a vibrant, cosmopolitan city steeped in culture, rich in folklore and famous for its cobble-stoned streets, quaint shops and charming restaurants. Home to the world renowned Druid Theatre Company, Macnas Street Theatre Company and An Thaibhdhearc there is much to do in this wonderful city and Galway boasts some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. The landscape leaves one breathless from the prehistoric fort of Dun Aengus, the most westerly point in Europe to Connemara and the Burren in nearby County Clare.
