HYDE - the Home of the Galway Races Afterparty!

HYDE is the Home of the Galway Races Afterparty – and we are really relishing a fantastically fun time for Race Week 2023.

We are one of the most chic and elegant places to enjoy a fab time, and we can’t wait to see all the phenomenal fashion and amazing looks on show across seven days of racing action.

Galway always comes alive once the Monday kicks into action, and here at HYDE we will be at the centre of all the party fun and good vibes right through to late on the Sunday of Race Week.

Join us for pre-racing cocktails to get in the festival mood, or enjoy a boozy brunch from 11 am any day during the seven-day Race Week Summer Festival. The Race Week Brunch is sponsored by Moët & Chandon Champagne and includes a main course brunch and two glasses of Moët & Chandon, €42 per person.

Plus, take in a delectable dinner from 5 pm, and return to the stylish surroundings of HYDE for the post-race party where there will be great entertainment on show every night.

What’s more, our convenient and fantastic group options mean that we are perfect for a girlie get-together or a big gathering – and we love to help make everyone’s experience as fantastic as possible.
