February Balls

February is the month of balls here in Galway, or so it seems. We told you  before about the Valentine’s Ball in the G Hotel and now there are 2 more nice venues to dance and dance and dance.

The society An Cumann Staire, organizes the NUIG Arts Ball every year in February and it is the highlight of the student calender and has been the largest society ball in Ireland with a record 1,700 students in attendance in 2011.
This year the venue is at the Salthill Hotel, with 4 well known bands the Arts Ball 2014. Tickets from 30 euros (afters). All proceeds of the Arts Ball will be going towards COPE Galway.
This is a classic formal dress ball so please dress well or you may not get in, and leave the runners at home on the window ledge.

The second ball is organized by NUIG Italian Society, and everybody can join (no need to be a student, just wear your mask). The masquerade celebrates the festival of Carnevale in Venice. It is held in aid of a different charity every year and it’s always an amazing night of colour, music and fun.

This year the ball is being held in the Galway Bay Hotel on the 20th February in aid of Pieta House. The initial date was also Thursday 13th but it has been moved to the 20th, so more time to prepare your outfit!

Tickets are 50 euros (including dinner) or 28 euros (afters)
