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.

Leaf and Bean brings cafe culture to Tuam

Thu, Jan 12, 2017

The truth of the matter is that in the large town of Tuam there is not much to choose from in the way of cafes and restaurants. When asked for recommendations of where to go for the best food and atmosphere, my advice would have been to pack some sandwiches to eat in your car. Pedros was, for a long time, the safest bet for somewhere to take the kids, until Lumberjacks Woodfired Pizza came along and offered another choice. Still very few places for a town of that size.

Home from home at The Connemara Sands

Thu, Dec 22, 2016

Ballyconneely is a small village just south of Clifden, the capital of Connemara, at the entry point to the Errismore Peninsula – an ideal place from which to explore the most tranquil, unspoilt, and interesting landscape to be found anywhere in our little country. Kathy McCallion spent much of her childhood here before relocating to New York City where she met her husband, Dean Gibson. After moving back to Ireland to expand their family, Ballyconneely drew them back home, an ideal destination for both family life and work. It's still early days for the first-time hoteliers, who are making their mark on the area after 16 years in the States, bringing new life to the former Mannin Bay Hotel in Ballyconneely after it had been closed for six years.

The Connemara Sands is a gem along the Wild Atlantic Way coastline where the beaches are white and the water is a tranquil turquoise blue. The untouched beauty of the landscape is steeped in history, and it boasts unrivaled panoramic views. In 2015 The Connemara Sands Hotel opened its doors to bring travellers from across the country and the world to this hidden gem. Designed with style and comfort in mind, the reception and bar have a quirky New England style but the view through the window is picturesque Connemara countryside. The juxtaposition of the funky design and the rural location is a feast for the senses.

Murrays Nile Lodge, the local coffee shop with a long history

Thu, Nov 03, 2016

Murrays is a friendly neighbourhood coffee shop with a long history. The building was originally built by the Murray family in the 1930s and over the next 60 years it served the community as a grocery shop and post office. There are many Galway people who fondly remember spending their pocket money on sweets and ice cream in Murrays! The shop closed in the 1990s but the family continued to live above it. In 2016 Doireann, great-grand-daughter of the original Mr. Murray, re-opened the business as a coffee shop and bakery.
