Galway Festival 2006 Luxury Packages

The 2006 Galway Festival, Stay with Turftours for the best festival ever.

July 31st - August 6th 2006

The Galway Races are one of the greatest of all Irish Racing Festivals and probably the most sociable event to attend. Galway Race Week is not only a great sporting event, but also a unique social occasion filled with atmosphere, passion and craic and attracts both true race-goers and socialites alike. 


Over the seven days of this meeting you can enjoy some of the best flat and national hunt races in Ireland, alongside great champagne and beer tents, jazz bands, trade stands, race-card competitions and the Best Dressed Lady competition on Thursday - all this excitment and activity ensures there is something for everyone to enjoy. 

After the success of our 2006 Galway Festival Packages we return again with our exclusive packages, using the best located Hotel's a short distance from Ballybrit (Galway) racecourse and set in the heart of racing country. This year why not Join turftours to experience the top class National Hunt and Flat racing, craic, fun and fashion of this great festival with the experts. 


Your VIP package starts with your arrival at the Hotel. After we have checked you in to your deluxe room you can relax for the evening. After a good night's sleep and your Irish Breakfast you have a few hours free to explore this exclusive resort before we collect you at 11am to take you racing at the Galway Festival. Your package today includes a reserved enclosure badge, allowing you to explore the racecourse, the paddock and pre-parade ring and have excellent views of the races from the rails or grandstand. When racing concludes we will take you back to the Hotel where you can relax. 

Turftours can arrange excellent Hospitality at the festival as an addition to this package and, unlike other companies,  you can book for 1, 2, 3, 4 or more nights with us.
