Celebrate National Burger Day with Harlowe

Wed, Aug 24, 2016

The burger bandwagon rolls on and on. We have seen the rise and fall of hot dogs, ribs, and burritos, but the popularity of burgers never seems to die. While we have compiled our own lists of where is best in Galway for fish and chips (Hooked), the best sandwich (Entrepans), pizza, fries, coffee, and more, for a long time even though almost every menu in town has a burger listed on it, there is none that really stands out from the crowd.

Go with the Flo at The Gourmet Offensive

Thu, Aug 18, 2016

Abbeygate Street has been transformed in the last couple of years from a down at heel shortcut to a bustling community of small cafes, restaurants, and shops. There are now so many places to choose from that this diversion from the main drag has become a hub of good food in Galway. The turn of fortune for this address can be directly linked to The Dough Bros taking up residence here, causing a huge increase in footfall. With their queue regularly streaming out the door, the many empty shopfronts were soon filled with a variety of diverse eateries to take up the slack and join the dots between the existing eclectic retailers, giving the area a new lease of life and identity.

Setting the bar at The Dáil

Sat, Aug 13, 2016

No, not that Dáil Bar, where politicians run up huge tabs after controversial late-night sittings. The other one, on the corner of Cross Street and Middle Street. Although it has the same name as the bar in Ireland's house of parliament, ('Dáil' translates from Irish as a place where people meet to discuss, debate, and talk), our Dáil is much better craic. Over the years, the building has been a family home, a toy shop, and most recently a licensed premises known as Tí na nÓg. Since 2008, the pub is in common ownership with The Front Door, Tom Sheridans, and Brasserie on The Corner, and as such has a higher standard than most others. It enjoys an ideal location in The Latin Quarter, just around the corner from Quay Street and Galway's tourist and shopping hub.

Athrú 2016 inaugural conference to take place in Galway next week

Thu, Jul 14, 2016

Leading female chefs and restaurateurs from across Ireland are coming together in Galway next week for a culinary think-in and conference on gender roles within professional kitchens and throughout the hospitality sector. Athrú 2016, empowering women in the culinary arts in Ireland, is a two day conference and workshop with the goal of establishing a working Irish female chef database that would be available or suitable for judging, media, or to provide a female voice and point of view.

Athrú 2016 is attracting international female culinary heads such as Maria Canabal, president of Parabere Forum - Improving Gastronomy with women's vision. Speaking ahead of the Athrú 2016 Ms Canabal said: “Currently, it's obvious that women are under-represented in the food and hospitality industry. At the same time — and this might not be a coincidence — society has become increasingly distrustful of the food industry. Women's voices need to be heard and their talents deployed, so that we can boost confidence in the food sector, and construct a vision of the future based on values of sustainability and equal opportunity. If society, and the food and wine industry, is to evolve towards greater sustainability, greater equality, stronger growth, and increased social progress, women must be able to take their rightful place.”
