Festivals and Events in Athenry

Athenry, 23kms east of Galway City, proudly claims to be the finest surviving medieval town in Ireland. It was established as a market town in the 13th century and its streetscape reflects its medieval past, with narrow streets and town walls. The town has been very well preserved - 80% of the walls, five out of six wall towers and one fine arched gateway still remain. Today, Athenry is a bustling town with a number of charming cafes and shops and a good choice of pubs for socialising and traditional music.
