The festival is again made possible through the support of the businesses of the Latin Quarter and GUINNESS. Chairperson of Galway’s Latin Quarter Aoife Qualter said; “GUINNESS LIVE will further consolidate Galway’s position as Ireland’s premier festival city and continue to highlight the Latin Quarter’s significance as a quality tourist destination. We acknowledge and appreciate the support of GUINNESS in making it happen.”


The Latin Quarter is the area of Galway situated on the left bank of the Corrib – defined by some of the city’s most historic landmarks, it stretches from Spanish Arch at Long walk to O’Brien’s Bridge to St Nicholas’ Church and back (via Buttermilk lane) to An Taibhdhearc on Middle St. It is home to many of Galway’s quirkiest and best known pubs, restaurants and shops and has for many years played host to much of Galway’s renowned cultural activity.
