Food & Wine

Gill’s Bar and Restaurant, Athenry

Thu, Oct 19, 2017

Ireland has many great pubs but in general, especially outside the cities, we do not have great pub food. It is one of the challenges that needs to be addressed as we hone our emerging Irish food culture. Our pubs are a huge draw for visitors from abroad, but the food on offer inside is often substandard. Gill's Bar and Restaurant in Athenry bucks this trend, it is an establishment with a gastropub sensibility, proper craft beers on offer, and more than decent food.

People of the Tribes: Meet Matt

Tue, Oct 17, 2017

I had always wanted to come to the Galway but decided to do my undergrad in Belfast. When I made up my mind to do a masters, Galway was the only place on which my sights were set. As soon as I arrived, I knew that I was going to enjoy living in Galway. I loved it so much I didn't go home (Co Down) once during my first term. That was nearly four months (my parents were delighted with that). People make places and Galway has such a mix, it is hard for people not fit in due to the fact the people embrace everyone. The nightlife, the pubs, clubs, and grubs are probably the best in the whole country.

Acers are hard to beat for blazing colour.

Going Down in a Blaze of Glory

Tue, Oct 17, 2017

If you’re a spring person like me this may not be your favourite time of year. However we are all part of the great circle of life and as the year draws to a close there are many compensations to be had for the shortening days in the outdoor world. This is when those with large gardens are to be envied as autumn, more than any other season, is the time of the tree. If you live in an area with acidic soil you are even luckier as many of the best trees for autumn colour produce their most vivid tints in acidic areas.
