Welcome to the website of the County Galway Hunt ‘The Blazers’

The hunt dates from the beginning of the 19th century and has established itself as one of the famous Irish Hunts due to the goodwill and generosity of farmers and landowners throughout the county.

Hunting takes place throughout the autumn and winter months on Saturdays, Tuesdays and occasional Thursdays. The ‘Blazers’ Hunt country covers about 30 miles square of limestone pasture with dry stone walls, good light going.

While we welcome visitors, numbers are limited so we request that you book in with our Hon.Secretary  who can also provide phone numbers of hireling yards. Please note that we do not allow visiting horses.


The world renowned Galway “Blazers” now offer special packages to come and hunt for a week or long weekend or indeed a single day (which will only whet your appetite). For more information please visit our ‘Visitors Page’.
