The Galway Races at The House Hotel

The Galway Races at The House Hotel

Yes, it is that time of year again. 

That time of year that if you walk down through Quay Street at any time during the day without a head piece on - you're going to feel slightly under-dressed! 

It's one of our favourite weeks of the year, the buzz, the style, the party, the cocktails... oh, and the actual horse racing of course!

Here's a summary of next week by The House Team

Best Dressed Lady
It’s one of the reasons they travel in their thousands to Ballybrit and it’s one of the most talked about parts of the Galway Races; Ladies Day of course. This year Kilkenny Design (@Kilkennydesign) are taking the reins on Best Dressed Lady and have chosen some of Ireland’s leading ladies to judge. Aran Islands native Maura Derrane (@MauraDerrane), a favourite to Galway, Image Publications Editor in Chief Melanie Morris (@melainemorris), and one of the most stylish ladies in print media, Bairbre Power (@bairbrepower).

If you can impress all three of these ladies then it could be your lucky day!

Now, we all know ‘Ladies Day’ is Thursday but here at The House Hotel its Ladies Day Every Day! It’s no secret we are one of the most stylish venues in town and that in turn means we host some of Galway’s best dressed week after week.

We have teamed up with some of our favourite local boutiques, beauticians, hair salons and milliner to offer daily prizes worth dressing up for! House Prizes include Emily Jean Millinery (www.emily-jean.com), C Beauty, David Martin, and House of Portobello (@HOUSEPORTOBELLO), all topped off with a night in The House Suite for one lucky lady!

Guinness & 50th Year of Sponsorship           
Guinness (@GuinnessIreland) have long been associated with the Galway Races, in fact it’s their 50th anniversary of their sponsorship this year! 50 years of supporting the leading race meeting in Ireland is certainly something to toast. If you’re not accustomed to having a Guinness then fear not, the Race Week Festival Drink is the ‘BLT’ – just not as you know it! This ‘BLT’ is a delicious serving of Bulleit Bourbon, Lemon Wedge, and Tonic Water.

We’re big fans of Bulleit Bourbon here in The House and we have recently fallen in love with whiskey sours… if you’re hanging about make sure you ask Aileen to mix one up for you – I can guarantee you’ll have a new favourite cocktail at our hotel in Galway!

Entertainment Line Up
Live music every day, late bar, BBQ, hot beef rolls, DJ, cocktail specials…. is there anything we’ve forgotten?? The House really is The Place To Party this Race Week so follow the road down around the corner and you won’t regret it.
