WIN: A special overnight trip to experience Culture Night in Cork, Galway or Killarney

We have three trips to give away – one to each location, all of which include a curated Culture Night trail.

CULTURE NIGHT WILL take place next Friday, 16 September, and you might already be thinking about what to do.

But if you’d like to experience the night in a totally different city or town to your own, then we have the competition for you.

We’re giving away three specially curated Culture Night overnight trips to Cork, Galway and Killarney (one trip per location).

The winners will be brought by Iarnród Éireann to one of the locations.  Airbnb - which is in 500 towns, cities and villages in Ireland – will provide the winners with a €200 voucher so they can book a listing for an overnight stay in Galway, Killarney or Cork.

Whether you want to bring a friend, your partner or your spouse and kids, this is a great way to see how they do Culture Night in a different part of the country.

When the winners arrive at Cork, Galway or Killarney, they’ll be presented with their own specially curated Culture Night schedule. But it being Culture Night, there are bound to be lots of surprise events to experience along the way.
