The Gaslight Bar & Brasserie opened in Hotel Meyrick last year and swiftly became one of the most talked about dining venues in Galway.

Grab a window seat with views over Eyre Square or sit at the bar counter and banter with the barman. During the day, enjoy satisfying sandwiches, crunchy bruschetta, fabulous fish, serious steaks, and seasonal specials with quality attentive service. Complimentary Wi-Fi is available for all guests.
By and large Galway does not like fine dining. White table cloths, fine linens, and silverware don’t appeal to our Bohemian tendencies. Elaborate five hour, three-figure, hushed meals make us collectively regress to our inner toddler, wanting to smear our foie gras and veloute around. That is not to say we don't enjoy fine food, we just like it in a more lively environment. Galwegians, and those who are drawn to settle here, are comfortable in the easy elegance of Kai, the relaxed charm of Il Vicolo, or propping up the bar upstairs in Sheridan’s — any place with that touch of novelty, eccentricity, and fun. In recent times, it seems the rest of the world is coming round to our point of view. There is a shift in the industry from formal and traditional establishments towards a style of low-key dining, both nationally and internationally. Now that chefs are busy opening pizza joints and noodle bars, the days seem numbered for fancy dining rooms and yet that is exactly what has just happened.
For new menus, updated decor, and a taste sensation that is not to be missed, it has to be Mulroy’s Gastro Pub, Main Street, Castlebar.
On Friday June 27 this year, Galway saw the welcome return of one of its oldest bars in the form of the newly refurbished An Púcán, at 11 Forster Street just off Eyre Square. Keeping with tradition, it offers free music sessions every day, in addition to more than 150 remarkable whiskeys from Ireland and around the globe, craft beers, boutique wines, and now with a full extended food menu, An Púcán promises to be a very exciting addition to the east city dining scene.
“If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.” - JRR Tolkien.
One of our favourite family spots has to be Mulberry’s restaurant in the village of Barna, on the coast road to Spiddal, close enough to Galway city to be almost considered a suburb. Set back from the main road, in a line of pretty shops, this is usually a busy spot with well thought out menus and family friendly dining. The two very hands-on owners, James and Deirdre Cunningham, are blessed with a good chef, Ziggy Kolanczyk. There is real focus on local seasonal produce and James himself can often be found foraging among the rocks on the local shores. The quality of ingredients, reasonable prices, and the casual elegance of the decor all adds up to a very good dining experience, with an emphasis on seafood and European style cuisine. Parking is both ample and free and the sky blue frontage is conveniently located next door to Ali’s Fish Shop, so you are guaranteed the seafood will be as fresh as can be.
