Biteclub takes casual dining to a new level

Thu, Dec 14, 2017

Abbeygate Street has, for a few years now, been the home of street food in Galway. While we may have lost several stalwarts in recent times — The Home Plate, Couch Potatas, and La Salsa — we have gained much more. This street has everything from authentic Mexican food to the very best falafel. There is a vegetarian cafe, an Italian restaurant, a chilli shack — and even a Asian supermarket and an American sweet shop.

A taste of Italy with a Galway accent

Thu, Dec 14, 2017

Eglinton Street has many long serving restaurants to choose from, such as Maxwells and the Cellar Bar. Newer, more exotic, places such as Tomodachi Sushi Bar have lately increased the wealth of choice in the area. Zappi's, set in the sizable building that you may remember as Decobakes, is the newest of these dining options. Gone are the overpriced fondant icing and cupcake wrappers, in their place neat, red, banquette seating and blonde wood tables topped with terracotta pots of basil. This casual diner serves a wide range of traditional dishes, specialising in pizza, pasta, gelato, and classic Italian wines. Zappi's is a pleasant surprise and you get much more than you expect, many of the staff are Italian, further adding to the authentic vibe.

GINgle Bells afternoon tea at the g just in time for Christmas

Thu, Dec 07, 2017

As a special addition to the already fabulous afternoon tea, the festive team at the g Hotel are putting a ‘g’ in ‘GINgle Bells’ with a new gin afternoon tea, partnered with Galway Gin. Aptly called the GINgle Bells afternoon tea, it is available daily from 12 noon to 6pm at €59 for two guests.

This added enhancement to much loved afternoon tea at the g introduces guests to one of the newest Irish gins to hit the market. Galway Gin is a sleek addition to the heady array already available and in keeping with its name, the main botanical is dilisk seaweed harvested from Galway Bay. The dilisk is combined with zesty lemon, warming cardamom, and sweet touches of clover and meadowsweet, making Galway Gin exceedingly refreshing. It is best served with Fever tree premium tonic and freshly sliced lemon.

Brasserie on the Corner, standing the test of time

Thu, Nov 23, 2017

It is hard to believe that Brasserie on the Corner has been around for as long as it has. It seems like only yesterday that the team were putting the finishing touches to it, yet that was way back in July 2012, and it has been going from strength to strength ever since. Opened on a disused corner of Eglinton Street, The Brasserie brought life back to this slightly down-at-heel area. It benefits by being run by the same people that have the popular Dáil Bar, The Front Door, and Tom Sheridan’s in Knocknacarra, a professional team that do not tend to miss a trick, and from being under the watchful eye of Eimear Killian, one of the best general managers in the business.
