At this time of year many of us find ourselves making the pilgrimage to Connemara to drop our offspring out to the Gaeltacht to brush up on their Irish language skills. An excellent stopping off point for lunch or dinner is Pádraicíns Bar & Restaurant overlooking Galway Bay.

St Nicholas’ Parochial Primary School is a co-educational, multi-denominational, child-centred, school with a long tradition of serving the youth of Galway. It is centrally located in Woodquay (beside The Town Hall Theatre) and due to this central location, the pupils have the opportunity to attend many different educational events held in The Town Hall Theatre, Dubray Book Shop, The Black Box, Galway City Museum, Galway City Library, and many other interesting locations.
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.
With the summer season fast approaching again, one of the bonuses for the frequent diner in Galway is better breakfast and brunch options. This was a bleak enough prospect for a long time, but now we are spoiled with great weekday breakfasts. PoppySeed, Ard Bia, and McCambridge’s cafes notably serve up perfect starts to the morning before the more reliable pubs join in after 10.30am or 11am with big fry-ups and comforting mugs of tea. At the weekends there is even more to choose from.
Recently I have had to reprimand my children for their overuse of the ‘N’ word. It is something that I, like many others, find deeply offensive. I have, I think, brought them up well and feel aggrieved that this is how they repay me. Such outrageous behaviour goes against everything that I believe to be right. It started off innocently enough with the five year old slipping the odd ‘N’ word into a sentence. I may have turned a blind eye, anything for a quiet life. Then all of a sudden it escalated into using it everywhere, at every possible opportunity, to my complete mortification. Out loud and in front of other people.
The past year has seen dela going from strength to strength, with accolades from Lucinda O’Sullivan and the McKenna Guides of particular note.
Brunch – a late morning combination of breakfast and lunch — is about taking a time out with family or friends and letting a little decadence into your day in the form of an early cocktail or late breakfast.
