About this Death Cafe

Join us for a conversation on death and dying in a relaxed and friendly setting, over a tea or coffee while eating cake. 

This is a chance to talk together informally about something that affects us all in an open, respectful and confidential space. We meet simply as people who are going to die. The objective is to allow a safe environment for people to explore issues surrounding death without an agenda, judgment, or criticism.

You can register at but do feel free to turn up on the evening if you decide. 


The aim of the Death Cafe movement is to increase awareness of death in order to help people make the most of their finite lives. Everyone is welcome. 

Death Cafes are not for profit and have no agenda, objectives, advertising or themes - the conversations that happen are entirely dependent on the people who turn up.

They are not grief support or counselling sessions.

Feel free to get in touch at GalwayDeathCafe if you'd like to find out more to help you decide whether you'd like to come along.


The Secret Garden offer the space for free. Please help support them by buying refreshments. Donations are accepted to cover costs.
