Our Friday just got a whole lot better, as we spotted a delightful new event doing the rounds on Facebook.
The Latin Quarter Gin Fest is coming to one of the most beautiful cities in the west, and we're already so excited.
Hosted in Galway's bustling, cultural and iconic Latin Quarter, the experience will be all the more "gin-joyable" thanks to the idyllic cobbled streets and river Corrib rushing by.
Held March 30 to April 2, it will be well worth the road trip. After all, when is Galway not a good idea?
Master classes and tastings, gin afternoon tea, gin trails, food and gin pairings, gin cocktails and competitions, blind tastings, new gin launches, gin experientials, along with Gins & Reels music sessions will be going on over the weekend, not to mention the multiple free workshops on offer.
"Galway is renowned as the city of festivals, so adding Gin Fest to the programme of events is another fantastic celebration for locals and visitors to the city to savour," said the Latin Quarter Commitee.
"In the past year, bars across the country have seen such a surge in the popularity and demand for gin so we want to create a festival that brings people together from the master distillers to those who enjoy drinking gin."
Forget the international springtime mini-break, Galway is going to be unreal that weekend!
