John Keoghs, The Lock Keeper in Galway’s West End, is launching small plates and signature cocktail menus to celebrate the summer and its first year on Dominick Street Upper.
John Keoghs has become a regular haunt for Galwegians and a new place to go for first time visitors to the city. The drinks selection with 28 gins, extensive wine list, signature beers, and of course a great pint of Guinness makes it the ideal place for an early evening or late night drink when in Galway.
When you don’t know what you want, but you know you want something different, the Bubbles and Highballs drinks menus at John Keoghs really hits the spot.
The John Keoghs Highballs menu mixes the most unusual and the best to bring together a really interesting fusion of flavours, like the Big Bird with banana schnapps, vodka, and pineapple juice, or a Pink Cello with Limoncello, vodka, and cranberry juice.
Food at John Keoghs is a celebration of life on the west coast, the close association with the land and of course with an in-house pastry chef, the dessert trolley is one that keeps drawing a sweet tooth in and back. The peanut butter parfait with chocolate ice cream and honeycomb, or a warm chocolate brownie with chocolate mousse and vanilla ice cream, and then there is the fresh raspberry tartlet, served with mascarpone cheese, orange pureé, and walnut ice cream.
The summer small plates bring the sea to John Keoghs with steamed Renvyle mussels with Dan Kelly’s cider, garlic, and cream, or Galway Bay oysters with a Guinness shot, lemon, and seaweed flakes. The nut crusted ham hock with a green pea, curry pineapple is perfect with a crisp Italian white wine, or the vegetarian hot and cold goat cheese, roast beetroot, and Corrib honey, and then of course comes the crisp polenta chips with parmesan, sriracha, and lime.
Dinner is served on week nights from 5pm and lunch from 1pm on weekends. Get social with John Keoghs, The Lock Keeper, across all social media platforms, call 091 449431, or check out John Keoghs on TripAdvisior or www.johnkeoghs.ie Private functions are catered for.
