We wrote a few weeks ago about the deadly gin festival happening in Galway right now, and if you have ANY free time to head on over to the cultural hot-spot that is Galway city then you really should, because Gin Fest is in full swing my sweets and it looks like pure perfection.

The dreamy festival is taking place in the city's Latin Quarter and includes masterclasses and tastings, a gin afternoon tea, gin trails, food and gin pairings, and gin competitions. 

There's also 'Gins n Reels' live music sessions, a heap of delish gin cocktails and pretty much all the general craic you'd imagine from a festival based on the absolute delight that is out true love: Gin. <3

Check out what's been going on so far:


You can't beat a bitta live music

There's loads of slick events happening tonight, including cocktail tastings and masterclasses with top brands such as Drumshanbo Gunpowder, Bombay, Hendricks and Tanqueray. YES.

Plus live music (all gin themed of course): Think Bombay ballads and a gin Trad session.

Just LOOK at this dreaaaamy beverage

Nice li'l cocktail class gwan

Tomorrow things kick off even more with a live workshop from Listoke Distillery showing how to make gin in a still, a special Hendricks tasting, AND a Gin Trail - a gin tour around the Latin Quarter that sounds like the ultimate day out.

We'll take four of these please

You'll find all the deets on this 'ginius' festival here, it's not too late to join in on all the Gin Fest fun - sure what else wouldja be doing this weekend?
