The luxury four star Hotel Meyrick is a magical winter wonderland each December with the Christmas market directly outside on Eyre Square and the elegant façade beautifully lit for the season. Guests are welcomed to Hotel Meyrick with seasonal scents and sights, twinkling with festive delight. The bustling Gaslight Bar & Brasserie on the ground floor is the perfect place to enjoy the party season. The atmosphere is second to none and sash windows offer incredible views of the Christmas Market and Ferris wheel on Eyre Square.
Walking through the doors of the hotel, guests will see beautifully adorned Christmas trees and a traditional gingerbread house display which is synonymous with the Meyrick at Christmas time. It truly is the home of Christmas in Galway each year.
Great value festive lunch menus are served in the Gaslight until 3.30pm each day and prices start at just €19 for two courses, with three courses available at €22. Both festive lunch menus include tea and coffee as well as a host of traditional and tasty favourites such as truffled wild mushroom pâté with toasted crostini, mixed leaves, or the goat’s cheese fritter with roasted beetroot.
Mouthwatering mains include slow cooked Irish beef steak with champ potato, roasted flat cap mushroom topped with red wine gravy; the much-loved roast turkey and ham with sausage and chestnut stuffing, drizzled with cranberry gravy; or opt for oven baked fillet of hake accompanied by sautéed green beans and chorizo. To finish your festive lunch in seasonal style you will have a choice of three equally tempting desserts, made daily be the hotel's pastry team — a traditional Christmas pudding or a classic Italian tiramisu, or for multiple festive flavours the dessert tasting plate is sure to please.
