Ireland: Food in Galway


We tried a variety of food and drinks in Galway. Very little of what we had was typical Irish fair. Breakfast was at the hotel and then Keltin and I made a deal: he get to pick lunch and I got to choose dinner. Keltin likes to try Mexican food in different countries, so we found a burrito bar. We might have over estimated the heat of the hot sauce. I managed to record our reactions.

We had eaten lunch early and needed a snack later in the day. We came across the churros and coffee shop. Apparently the afternoon pick-me-up we needed was fried dough covered in sugar and caffeine. It had rained earlier in the day. The air was heavy and just a bit too cool. Jokes aside a hot cup of tea did wonders.

For dinner I picked Trattoria Magnetti (I think, I didn’t actually take a picture), an Italian restaurant across the street from The Quay pub. I love some fish and chips but needed a change, so I got the mushroom risotto and it was exactly what I needed. For dessert we split a cannoli with pastiches and just the right amount of sweet. After dinner we headed across the street for a beer and some live music. Yes, we did get to hear a cover of Galway Girl in Galway. Check out the full Ireland playlist here.

Galway was full of history, a relaxed setting, good music, and good food. What is your favorite thing to do in a new city? Let me know in the comments. Remember to leave no trace and safe travels!

  1. I think, if I were to mention the first thing to do in a new city, I’d have to say visit a museum. Food, would definitely be on that list…I’m a sucker for local cusine, and mostly every place has some. Great post Laci!
