What’s Good? Galway.

The west is the best! For anyone planning a visit to Galway, prepare to really wind down, because the best way to get the most out of this beautiful city is to become so laid back that you are horizontal. Good food, good drink, great vibes. What more could one ask for?
We've got our new store down there on 22 Cross Street, so we've been spending lots of time eating out. If I were to mention everywhere that’s good to eat in Galway at the moment this blog would be just reeking of gluttony. But there are some places that should not be left off the list!

The Dough Bro’s: The lads are fast becoming a household name and it’s no wonder as they are serving up some of the best pizza pies in the country – FACT! They have just moved into their new home on Upper Abbeygate Street where they are continuing their success in being one of the firm favourite eateries in Galway. They use only the best, most authentic ingredients and serve with the most genuine customer service around. Casual, fun and delicious dining!

Ard Bia @ Nimmos: if you are a fan of brunch (so everyone then, yeah?) you need to make your way down here ASAP. Perfectly poached eggs are a thing of beauty, and they become egg-ceedingly egg-cellent (sorry- I had to) when enjoyed in this beautiful ex-boathouse down the Spanish Arch. I really can’t say enough positive things about this place so you are really going to have to come down and try it out for yourselves!

Electric Garden/Biteclub: Electric on lower Abbeygate Street won ‘’Music Venue/Nightclub of the Year’’ at the 'Sky, Bar of the Year Awards' held in Dublin this year so you don’t just have to take my word for it that this is the best place around to party. The guys at Electric also offer some of the best diner inspired street food around in Biteclub, as well as having one of the most intriguing exciting drinks menus on the go! If you are partial to a Margarita, the Basil & Cracked Black Pepper version of the classic cocktail is the business.

On the topic of booze, having a proper pint of Guinness is something that usually helps induce that laid back attitude I was talking about. Where are the best places to get one you ask?
Tigh Neachtains: If pints and people watching are your thing then there is no better place to do it than Quay Street. Grab a table outside, sit back and enjoy!

Bunch of Grapes: A great spot to suck in a creamy pint and catch up with friends. I also challenge you to find a speck of dust in this place! It is the cleanest pub i have ever enjoyed a drink in courtesy of the lovely lady that works there and polishes the place like a pro!


Bierhause: The lads are situated down west (of the city) and even though they serve a great pint of the black stuff, put your trust in them to pour you something a little different. They have the best selection of craft beers in town and are not half bad at the chat either!

On the days where alcohol is not on the agenda (and you get half decent weather) just grab yourself a coffee and head on down to the Spanish Arch where you will find yourself a nice little perch on the grass. Everyone congregates here on the fine days with the mutual thought of enjoy the sun while it lasts.
