This video will make you want to have a night out in Galway.

Several bars and hotels spent the last few months creating this lovely video to show how much Galway city has to offer at Christmas.

The video follows broadcaster Hector Ó hEochagáin around the city, where he bumps into some locals, a tourist, Connacht rugby player Bundee Aki and even the Liam MacCarthy Cup.

"We have an amazing city at our doorsteps and we wanted to try capture that in a three minute video," said An Pucan pub's Doug Leddin

"There are a million reasons to visit Galway and every single one of them starts and ends with the people of Galway.

"From the buskers of shop street to the festivals, it is truly a special unique place."

The video, backed by 1520, An Pucan, The Connacht Hotel, Forster Court, Garavans, Residence Hotel and Active Fitness, has been positively received since it was published online today.

"The reaction to the video so far has been incredible and we are so proud to showcase Galway in such an amazing way and so grateful for all the support all the local companies have shown by sharing this message across Ireland," Mr Leddin said.
