THE FESTIVAL Garden, one of the most popular aspects of last year's Galway International Arts Festival, will return to Eyre Square for this year's festival which runs from July 15 to 28.
The Skeff Bar is the Official Festival Garden Partner for GIAF 19 and it will operate the bar within the garden. On Wednesday June 5, The Skeff hosted a party to celebrate this association. The theme of the night was ‘Nature’ with decor used to bring the outdoors in. Guests were served afternoon tea style canapés with a selection of drinks including Infused Water, Method of Madness G&Ts and bottles of Heineken 0.0 in the surroundings of a floral wall, ivy runners, flower pots, colourful arrangements and greenery.

“We are delighted to be working with the GIAF again for the second year in a row," said David Hayes, group marketing manager of The Callanan Hotel Group. "The effort that is put in behind the scenes is phenomenal. This festival doesn’t happen by accident, the team puts in an incredible amount of effort throughout the year to get the programme to such a high standard. Their hard work is evident in how well the festival runs year after year. We are thrilled to be this year’s Festival Garden sponsor and look forward to the weeks ahead.”
