The Galway Races has been part of the city's history since the first race meeting in 1869. The July/ August race festival is one of the largest and most popular in the country. The Galway Races have been immortalised both in song and verse and the city virtually comes to a standstill for the six day meeting, with businesses in the city traditionally closing for at least the latter part of the week.

About ratings

Ratings allow us to identify the best (and worst) of Galway. The rating process is quick, easy and anonymous.

How to submit a rating

Step 1: Click on the icon which best describes your level of satisfaction for each category.

Step 2: Enter your email address at the bottom left, and click the Submit Rating button. Your email is not used for any purpose other than to validate your rating.

Step 3: Enter your validation code which will be sent to you in an email message. Press the Send Validation Code button.

Can I change a rating?

Yes, to change your rating just submit another rating. The new rating will override any previous ratings.

Why do we validate ratings?

Associating a rating with an email address prevents cheating. Without this measure it would be trivial for someone to submit many ratings and bias the results.

The validation process works by sending a PIN to your email address which you will need to complete the rating process. Once successfully validated you can continue to rate other businesses without having to validate again for the duration of your browsing session (ie until you close the browser).
