Here at Galway Community Café, we are fans of music! Despite us all having varied music tastes, the common thread is that music makes us all feel. Whether it’s we want a feel-good tune, some mindful relaxation music, something to make us cry or for when we aren’t feeling so good, we each have different go-to songs for different reasons.

We came up with a list of songs that we wanted to share with you all, which are categorised into different aspects of how they make us feel. The better part? We have created a Youtube Playlist here for you with them all included! These songs are personal preferences of the staff, these may not be your kind of music, but be sure to let us know what is!
