Barna village is just a five minute walk from us at Galway Coast Cottages, and offers some of the finest eateries in Galway. There is something for everyone to enjoy, from a traditional Irish pub to the swanky upmarket West restaurant at the Twelve, to the lovely Nourish Coffee shop, and the fresh West Coast seafood of O'Grady's on the Pier!
West is a modern take on a classic - a contemporary riff on a San Fran-style club restaurant. Beautifully lit, flattering and gleaming, with a sweet champagne bar, cosy booths and smooth dark wood, West is a proper restaurant, a grown-up room and a reminder of why some things in life are too good to change.
Loam is a Michelin-starred restaurant and wine bar located just off Eyre Square in Galway city. It first opened its doors in November 2014 and is owned and run by Head Chef Enda McEvoy – voted ‘Best Chef in Ireland‘ at the 2016 Irish Restaurant Awards.
At Loam – meaning ‘rich, fertile soil’ – focus is on modern ambitious cooking rooted in tradition. Seasonally driven, they work very closely with local farmers and producers, many of whom are close friends, to get the products they need to reflect and capture the feeling and magic of the west of Ireland.
