It's no secret at this stage that Galway is always a top notch spot for a weekend break. Gorgeous Irish restaurants (we're looking at you Dela and Aniar) and heaps of bars with live music and cocktails to boot, the small but mighty city never disappoints.
So when we heard that there's gonna be a goddamn GIN FESTIVAL down there we almost lost our minds. Don't worry though, we saved ourselves just in time to spread the news with you, our fellow gin-aholics.
The Latin Quarter Gin Fest is returning to celebrate all things gin from Thursday June 7 - Saturday June 10
Promising a "weekend of gin-joyment, a range of fun and interactive events will be taking place in the bars & venues throughout the Latin Quarter including; Gin Cruises, Gin Forage, Irish Gin Village, Distillery Road Trip, Master Classes and Tastings, Gin Afternoon Tea, Gin Trails, Food & Gin Pairings, Gin Cocktails & Competitions, New Gin Launches and Gin Experientials to name just some of the ginteresting events planned."
We know, that's a lot of gin puns. Just go with it.
The focus of the festival is to encourage people to try a variety of gin and tonic brands now available on the market, from Irish to international creations.
There will also be a focus on the education side of how gin is made for both the trade and public, learning about the perfect serve when choosing garnishes and how tonics enhance the flavour of your drink.
Sounds like the ideal way to get the summer off to a great start.
A full programme of events is coming soon and for regular updates follow The Latin Quarter on social media using the hastag #LQGinFest or email [email protected].
