Since 1852 Galway's iconic Hotel Meyrick on Eyre Square has been one the city’s favourite establishments due to its culinary delights, welcoming ambiance, and central location.
Situated on the lower ground floor of the Meyrick, No 15 on the Square Restaurant is an ideal venue for celebrations, romantic dinners, family events, business dinners, and more. It is a special place delivering exceptional food in beautiful surroundings. The combination of the finest cuisine, an extensive wine list, and impeccable service in the heart of Galway creates an unbeatable dining experience.
Plush carpeted stairs take you to No 15 where a wonder of farm fresh Irish food awaits. The interior is an atmospheric mix of exposed brickwork, flickering candles, airy dining areas to the front, and more intimate, softly lit, romantic nooks to the rear. It is easy see why the buzz of conversation and chink of crockery has echoed throughout these beautiful surroundings since 1852. The experience of the management and warm, friendly, staff is second to none, ensuring No 15 Restaurant stands out from the crowd. The sister of the bustling Gaslight Brasserie, No 15 on the Square not only serves great food but does so with excellent service, both of which have always been at the heart of Hotel Meyrick’s success. It is a relaxed and special dining experience where the guests' enjoyment is core to each meal.
General manager Cian O’Broin said: “No 15 is the epitome of Irish hospitality where the guest is at the heart of everything we do. It is a fine dining experience; but a relaxed and inclusive experience. Guests will delight in No 15’s seasonal menus, and they will recognise the same high quality attentive service, which runs throughout the hotel — the reason why our guests return time and time again. Our guests and corporate groups can enjoy their meal in No 15, as well as relaxing with a pre or post dinner cocktail in the Gaslight, everything they need for a memorable night out is within the hotel.”
No 15 on the Square offers thoughtfully considered and carefully crafted menus, modern classic cuisine with the very best of seasonal produce. The portions are generous and the dishes are reasonably priced. A newly launched menu places an emphasis on meat and charcuterie, with local seafood to the fore and delicious vegetarian options. Guests will savour the incredibly tender slow cooked belly of pork which is served with a seared king scallop, fennel salad, and apple gel, or the firm guest favourite of chicken liver and pork terrine, pickled veg, cauliflower puree, and ciabatta crostini. The open kitchen adds to the atmosphere and teases guests with rich aromas of mouthwatering main courses such as the rosemary and balsamic braised shoulder of lamb or the tornedo of Hereford steak. Seafood lovers will feast on a fillet of wild Atlantic hake with sweet potato and pea risotto and tempura of curried mussels, or roasted stone bass with brandy bisque and crab wonton.
The desserts offer a burst of sweetness leaving you wanting more from the innovative pastry team at Hotel Meyrick. Choose between the apple tarte tatin or the banana, honey, and passionfruit parfait, or perhaps the cheeseboard showcasing the best of Irish cheeses to finish your meal in style.
Both versatile and elegant, No 15 is the ideal venue for dinner plans in the heart of the city, be it a special celebration, romantic dinner, family meal, or corporate entertainment. It is also available for private lunch hire. No matter what the occasion, you are guaranteed an excellent experience and you will be truly captivated not only by the delicious menus but by the wonderful Meyrick welcome.
