Looking for the perfect place to eat in Galway? The city’s restaurants have come together to make your dinner decisions easier

Dine In Galway’s A Plate for Everyone aims to find you the perfect Galway restaurants for your palate, place and purse in the city.


Deciding on a spot to eat is tricky at the best of times. Do you fancy fish or Italian? Sushi or steak? Middle Eastern or burgers? But now, as we all emerge from a culinarily quiet few months, we’re almost overloaded with reopened options.

Working with the finest local producers and ingredients, Galway city has become known for its plethora of amazing, diverse mouthfuls. From the city’s famed Michelin starred-spots to takeaway treats bursting with flavour, how could anyone possibly decide? Post-Covid, the City of Tribes’ local eateries have come together to make these decisions easier for you, whether you’re a homegrown local or simply taking the summer to be a tourist in Ireland.

Bringing the city and county’s most delectable food spots in one place, Dine In Galway, an initiative run by the local food community and supported by Galway City Council, aims to highlight all the best bites it has to offer.

Enough of trawling through message boards and tourist recommendations to figure out the best pizza spot in town (psst, the answer is Dough Bros). Instead, you just click on the neighbourhood you’d like to eat in and it’ll whittle down your options to the very best of homegrown cuisine, from high-end delicacies to takeaway boxes with heavenly aromas.

Maybe you’d like some fish and chips in the Westend? Then head to Hooked, or perhaps it’s a falafel to-go in town – hit The Gourmet Offensive for that. Coffee and something sweet in Salthill? Ground & Co. Or perhaps a warming lunch post-hike in Connemara, that’d be O’Dowds.

This sense of community is nothing news to the restaurants, bars, producers and foodies of Galway. “Restaurants and small local businesses are much more than the sum of their parts,” explains Sinead Meacle and Enda McEnvoy of Loam. “They support and showcase a wide network of growers and craftspeople, fishermen and farmers, cheesemakers and candle makers, bakers and refuse collectors all of whom have been affected by this pandemic and all who will be supported by supporting local and helping Galway get back on its feet.”

Watching these local industries support and lift up each other is a reassuring sight during these strange times. So if you’re looking for a new place to eat or simply passing through, rest assured that there’s a plate for everyone in Galway. And you needn’t look too far for it either, just head to Dine In Galway.
