Galway – A Visitors’ Guide – Where to Eat

So now that you have decided to visit Galway and booked your accommodation, you need to figure out where to eat whilst you are here.  Galway has so many great and varied restaurants, it can be difficult to know where to start. Fine Dining? There are many “Fine Dining” restaurants in the city.  There is one Michelin Starred restaurant – Aniar.  (See separate post on this site). This is a small restaurant so if you plan to visit, you will most certainly need to book in advance, particularly if you wish to visit on a weekend night.  The restaurant now has a new Head Chef – welcome Ultan Cooke! If you like Fish, then you really must visit O’Grady’s on the Pier in Barna (again, see separate post on this site).  The restaurant is easily accessible from the city centre by car or taxi and is well worth the trip.  It really is one of the best restaurants in the Galway area and its setting on the beach at Barna is truly magical.

Providence Market Kitchen, Galway

A visit to Providence Market Kitchen on the corner of St. Augustine Street and Abbeygate Street, Galway has put it at the top of my list for the best coffee in Galway.  This gorgeous cafe serves coffees, juices, cakes, soups, salads and sandwiches and is well worth a visit.  The cafe also serves as a gallery exhibiting paintings from established local artists. We stopped by on Saturday for a quick coffee.  Prices are very reasonable with E14 getting us two cappuccinos, a latte, a muffin, a scone and a “Rocky Road”.   The cakes were all very good but it was the coffee that stole the show.  Not only were they perfectly made but the flavour was fantastic – definitely my new favourite for a pit stop coffee in  Galway. The cafe will also pack you an “urban picnic” if you wish to enjoy elsewhere and all menu items are available for take away.  Treat yourself to a coffee and more at Providence Market Kitchen soon!
