Galway International Arts Festival has won in the Best Irish Festival category at the 2019 Irish Hospitality Awards ceremony which took place recently in the Crowne Plaza Dublin Airport Hotel.

Commenting on the award, GIAF CEO John Crumlish said: “It’s an absolute honour to receive this recognition from The Irish Hospitality Awards and we’re very grateful to all who voted. This award is shared with our wider festival team, all the great artists we work with, our wonderful volunteers and all the sponsors and funders without whom it would not be possible to put our festival on."
