Galway Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations


County town of Galway, this town is also the largest conurbation in the west of Ireland. Its location at the mouth of the Corrib at the end of Galway Bay makes it an ideal port. The original docks on the east bank of the river now extend towards the south-east. The cathedral, spiritual centre of the city, and university town - which is home to many modern industries - have sprung up around the medieval heart of narrow streets.

Restaurants Galway

  • Aniar Quite comfortable restaurant  A very good restaurant in its category

    53 Lower Dominick St IRL - Gaillimh / Galway

    Intimate restaurant with a cool, Scandic feel; its name means 'From the West'. Large blackboards list the 'produce of the month' - wild and forage ingredients play a key role. The menu is confirmed at 6pm, when the last of the day's ingredients arriv..

  • Camilaun Restaurant within a Michelin recommended hotel (or restaurant) 

    Taylor's Hill IRL - Gaillimh

  • Oscar's Seafood Bistro Quite comfortable restaurant 

    Dominick St IRL - Galway

    Very welcoming bistro in a bohemian part of the city. The intimate interior is striking red with fabrics on the ceiling and richly upholstered banquettes. Choose something from the daily blackboard menu, which lists the catch of the day.

  • Blazer's Bar and Bistro Restaurant within a Michelin recommended hotel (or restaurant) 

    Taylor's Hill IRL - Gaillimh

  • Latin Quarter Quite comfortable restaurant 

    1 High St IRL - Gaillimh / Galway

    The menu at this bright, two-floored restaurant alters as the day goes on. Lunch centres around one course - including a soup, a salad and maybe a pie of the day; while dinner is a more substantial. Cooking is honest and flavoursome.

  • Kai Quite comfortable restaurant 

    22 Sea Rd IRL - Gaillimh / Galway

    Lovely, laid-back restaurant with a gloriously cluttered interior and old scrubbed floorboards on the walls. Morning cakes morph into fresh, simple lunches, then afternoon tea and tasty dinners. Produce is organic, free range and traceable.
