From breakfast and brunch right through to your evening meal, everything is catered for in the city and the chefs here take great pride in what they do. With the ideal location by the sea, seafood is obviously a specialty of many of the city’s best restaurants. Other local produce like Connemara spring lamb is another jewel to add to Galway’s culinary crown. Outside of the traditional restaurants, street food is part of Galway’s rich cultural tapestry. Any given weekend you can stroll down the cobbled streets through the markets and sample the artisan foods produced locally.
The Galway Food Festival is a highlight in the festival calendar of the city for locals. This year, the theme centres around food and the community. Galway is home to many different communities and offers a diverse taste experience as these people bring their food culture with them. This festival is all about bringing all of these global and local communities together and making food the focus as we forge a new community inclusive of everyone. Taking place over Easter weekend, we have our fingers firmly crossed for some excellent weather and with the kids off school and the summer only around the corner, what better time to come visit Galway?
