i am very surprised to read one of the people on this site complained about the quilt festival in galway, ireland. i attended with twenty five ladies from my quilt quild and i also am from paducah, kentucky where we host a lovely quilt festival.

it is my opinion of the new idea of a quilters village ate the university grounds was a terrific idea. i do think there could have been more signs, but i would not fault the festival itself. that can be improved on next year, since this past year was the first time they did the festival.

i think anyone who goes to the international quilt festival in ireland will experience a marvelous time. don't miss it, it was really a wonderful experience.

I attended the International Quilt Festival at the University with a large group of quilters who spent three days at various events on campus. Many of us were lost a great deal of the time. The organizers of the quilt festival claimed that the University wouldn't let them post additional signs, but the buildings were hard to find. The quilts were in various buildings throughout the campus, and I missed a lot of them. The castle was the best building, and that's where the Quilt Garden quilts were displayed. The quilts in other buildings were in classrooms and various halls that were hard to find. Classes with quilting instructors were canceled without notice by the quilt festival organizers. There were surprisingly few vendors at the quilt festival. I would attend the 2013 quilt festival with caution.

Beautiful campus merging old and new buildings. Situated along the river, it's perfect for a ramble that brings you into the heart of the city. Worth a look.

This is a great campus with lots of green areas and old building. The main part is an old castle that make this place magic.
