The 6 excellent eateries you NEED to try next time you’re in Galway

Travelling to Galway is always a good idea.

With the lively city's famous flair for fun, friendly locals, cultural richness and non-stop night scene, it's a must-visit for Irish folk and tourists alike.

If you are heading west, there are a few treasured eateries you should definitely check out while you are there. 

Yummy Crepes

Mick's famous creparie is a Galway institution. 

The stall has been a focal point of the Galway market for donkey's years, situated in the shade of St Nicholas' Church in the city centre.

The traditional ham,cheese, scallion and mustard crepe is always a winner, or get more experimental with your choice of fillings.

WA Cafe

Using the freshest of ingredients, the authentic sushi at WA Cafe is an unmissible hallmark on Galway's seafood scene.

The cafe, snuggled amongst the harbour-side traders at the docks, is run by a Japanese-Galwegian family who bring the delectable flavours of sushi and ramen to life.

The cafe just won The All-Ireland Best World Cuisine 2017 award at the The Irish Restaurant Awards, so snap up a platter of their sashimi quick! Oh, and pick us up a packet of Pocky on your way out.

Biteclub

A list of the finest Galway eateries wouldn't be complete with our adding one of the country's edgiest street food specialists. 

Biteclub Streetfood Discotheque brings a menagerie of eclectic menu choices to life, ranging from spicy fish tacos and Korean sesame chicken to deep-fried churros and the creamiest mac and cheese in the land. 

Oh, and it's a cardinal sin to leave Biteclub without sampling one of their lethal watermelon and gin slushies.

Seven

Seven is a bar/restaurant tucked away in Galway's Latin Quarter. 

The intimate and welcoming vibe is perfect for a hungover breakfast with the gang, or try the extensive drinks menu as the evenings grow darker.

Opt for their classic full Irish breakfast on cheat day, or tackle the delicious goats cheese and roasted vegetable panini.

Tribeton

Known for its edgy yet sultry decor and champagne cocktails, Tribeton has been delighting the palettes of Galwegians since it opened.

The industrial backdrop sets the scene for a night of gourmet bar snacks and beverages, or you can go all out and opt for their night time menu. 

The grilled salmon with chorizo cream and the Belvedere Spritz cocktail are the ideal menu options.

Caprice Cafe

This delectable delicatessen is about to celebrate its first anniversary. 

While it may still be the new kid on the block when it comes to Galway eateries, the brunch behemoth on Church Lane has already made a mega impression on diners in the city of tribes.

Try the delectable calimari with citrus salad if you're in the mood for a lighter bite, or go all out with the luxurious lobster and eggs at brunch.
