Friday night saw the official opening of the Galway Continental Christmas Market.This is a first for the city and is taking place the Kennedy Park Eyre Square. Neen and I went in to check it out on the opening night and the atmosphere was amazing. The whole event is a wonderful boost for the city. There is absolutely loads to see and multiple visits are a must. I love Christmas so much and the presence of the European style market and of course a traditional Santa's grotto in the very centre of the park will undoubtedly do wonders in lifting local spirits. We sampled loads of food on the night, European potato dishes, German bratwurst sausage, Dutch Apple and Cinnamon donuts and chocolate waffles. Very much looking forward to having a second look around this weekend and maybe buying a pair of mittens or a hand-made Christmas ornament or two.
