November – January

The darkest season – a time of mystery, mischief and mourning.


Samhain ushers in the darkness of winter, when the border between life and the Otherworld is faint. This point in the programme asks us to reflect on our past and place faith in an unknown future.

Comhaltas celebrates the beauty of traditional Irish culture, while Nighthouse Studio’s Unsung promises a moving contemporary tribute to Galway’s lost children. Ancient customs are honoured and new values embraced, as we light the way forward in an unforgettable Lumiere Galway closing event.
