Oughterard at Xmas

There for Xmas week, any recommendations on must do things? Will have a car and hope to get to dogs at Galway if anyone know more on this?

Hello MmmTravely,

This Oughterard Tourism site should help deal with any questions you might have:


As Oughterard (OOK-thar-ard approximate pronounciation) is in Connemara, this site may help. More Christmas and December events should appear as time goes on:


This should set you right with regard to Greyhound Racing in Galway. Keep checking in for upcoming events. BTW, the Irish Greyhound Board is the English for 'Bord na gCon' (pronounced 'Board na Gun'):


Again, more events should materialise nearer December for this

Galway City site:


One of my favourite all-time memories is Christmas Eve in Galway City! Nothing in particular but everything in general....

No doubt, locals and others with more precise information and help will contribute.
