Hundreds of restaurants, cafés and bars across Galway city and county are partnering with local food producers for Dine in Galway week, running from November 5 to 11 as part of the European Region of Gastronomy.
The week-long event aims to showcase the best of Galway food.
According to Elaine Donohue, programme co-ordinator for ERoG, Galway, local restaurants, cafés, and bars will put local ingredients at the centre of their menus for the week.
“Galway’s dining landscape is renowned throughout Ireland and internationally for being exceptional,” Ms Donohue said. “The city and county boasts more than 350 restaurants — two with Michelin stars, and now three having Bib Gourmands. Key to this success is the recognition by chefs and restaurant owners of the superb quality of the region’s local ingredients and the value of sourcing from local food producers in terms of freshness, flavour, and sustainability.”
Hundreds of businesses across the city and whole county are expected to take part in Dine in Galway, collaborating with local food producers to create dishes with a focus on locally produced food. Expect specially designed menu items highlighting first-class regional produce that showcase Galway’s world-class food and dining landscape.
The Restaurants Association of Ireland’s Galway representative, Eimear Killian from Brasserie on the Corner in Eglinton Street, said: “We are very excited to showcase our connection with producers for Dine in Galway.”
