THE DIRTY Circus will deliver a night of the most fantastic, sauciest, and craziest cabaret imaginable when it returns to the Róisín Dubh, and among the performers is Bonnie Boux, Miss Burlesque Ireland Showgirl of the Year 2016.
I love being the food writer for the Mayo Advertiser as the perks are fantastic. Last week my wife Julie and I were invited to sample the new tasting menu at Season’s Restaurant on Main Street, Castlebar. We were greeted by owner John Mulroy and brought to a lovely window table which overlooks the Main Street. I have eaten here before and the restaurant is very clean and modern, but so comfortable that you immediately feel like you are at home. New head chef Tobias Streinetberger has brought many years’ experience of working on luxury cruise ships to Season’s Restaurant and likes to let the food and the flavours talk for themselves.
Platform 3, the bar, cafe, and newsagency in Ceannt Railway Station, Galway, has recently undergone a refurbishment and now boasts a range of new and convenient services.
If you ask any student or ex student from Galway where they drink in Galway city, I think The Cellar Bar will be among the top places. It has also been a regular for locals, tourists, and weekenders. It was unfortunately closed down last January for a few months and now is in new ownership, up and running seven days a week.
The Townhouse Restaurant is located over the Townhouse Bar facing the Spanish Arch. It has had a couple of identity changes in the last year or two, and that normally does not bode well. However in this case I think they have come up with a formula that works, funky styling, the menu, food quality, and the prices. The décor is pretty hard to describe, but a cross between random retro and New York funky might be a rough guide. Where there was once the usual suspended spotlights, there is now a collection of every type of retro shade you could imagine and a really clever line of about 20 to 30 Heinz beans tins transformed into downlighters. The tables are definitely sixties and the unusual chairs are eyecatching and pleasantly comfortable. The music is similarly retro and well chosen.
With the weather finally warming up there are few more delightful places to dine than on the sun deck of the Atlantic Hotel in Clifden.
Prices of houses are falling, prices of cars and vans are being slashed, and there are sales and special offers everywhere, so why are we not seeing any drops in the price of food to go? For ages I have felt that €4.40+ for a regular sandwich is outrageous and in these times of belt tightening many people do not have that kind of money to spend on what is only a snack.
Last Sunday saw the launch of Galway’s newest market in Clarinbridge. It will be held on the last Sunday of each month beside the garden centre at the rear of Centra. There was a superb turnout of 19 market stalls selling cakes, breads, home-made soups, oysters, farm fresh eggs, jams, pancakes, chutneys, and home-made fudge, plus several jewellery and hand crafts stalls. It was very busy with one trader telling me that she had sold 48 cakes of brown bread by 1.30pm. It starts at 12 noon and closes at 6pm, and a stall can be purchased for €20 which seems very good value indeed. I predict that it is going to be very popular, particularly in the summer months, so if you are thinking about a stall there, book your space now before it is full. As always I encourage you to attend and support all local markets in your area and I wish the Clarinbridge Market and all its stall holders every success.
