Food & Wine

Sunday lunch at The Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa, Galway

Tue, Jan 17, 2017

Located on the banks of Lough Atalia and overlooking Galway Bay, the Radisson Hotel certainly has an impressive location. It is just a stone's throw from Eyre Square and all the high profile shops, restaurants, and bars it has to offer, and a handy stroll to the bustling pubs and eateries of Quay Street. It enjoys close proximity to the bus and railway stations, all main city bus routes, and there are taxi ranks aplenty on the doorstep. Ireland West Airport is 88.5km from the hotel while Galway Racecourse is just a 10-minute drive (assuming that it is not during the actual races, when your guess is as good as mine). Despite being so close to all of this activity, it stands slightly aloof, tucked away in a quiet cul-de-sac on top of the hill with tranquil views of the water.

The Show Ain’t Over – Last Blast of the Perennials!

Thu, Sep 29, 2016

As the Autumn Equinox approaches, it’s time to stock up on firewood and pull out the woolly blankets and snuggly cushions, as the evenings draw in and we get ready for cosy nights catching up on those Booker- nominated novels (or binging on Netflix – whatever’s your thing....) There’s still lots to enjoy outside though, and I’m still hoping we’ll get some of those golden autumn days when time seems to stand still. If you have a fire pit or chiminea and are lucky enough to have a sheltered garden, it’s not too late to enjoy some time outside, even as the autumn chill creeps in.
