One of Galway's longest-established nightclubs is to close permanently.

The Electric/Halo venue on Abbeygate Street has operated under a number of different names over the last three decades.

In a statement posted on the club’s social media channels, the owners said they could "wait no longer" having sustained "over six hundred days of complete closure, lost revenue, unpaid bills and reopening dates that never materialised".

The premises is to be put up for sale.

During its time as Central Park in the 1990s, the club was a popular destination for locals, students and visitors to the city.

It closed for a time around a decade ago, and the club was subsequently rebranded as The Electric Garden.

The club’s owners say they hope the venue will "continue as a place for dancing".

However, most of Galway’s clubs have shut in the last decade, as late bars attract customers who previously hit the dancefloor as part of a night out.
