The Dine in Galway group has launched a new initiative called A Plate for Everyone, which aims to celebrate the people, cultures and flavours that make Galway’s food scene what it is.

From the 29th of June, Galway’s cafes, restaurants and gastro pubs will be reopened, reimagined and ready to welcome people back. Dine in Galway endeavours to highlight the food and drink on offer in one of Ireland’s most vibrant destinations.

Visitors can experience the tastes of the world in Galway; starting with locally grown produce available from the Galway Market each weekend, Chinese Street Food from Xi’an Street Food, authentic Italian pizza from The Dough Bros, Middle-Eastern falafel from The Gourmet Offensive, Spanish tapas from Cava, contemporary brunch from Dela or hearty, rustic Bistro food from The Kings Head.

Galway is also home to a host of comfortable and relaxing hotels and hostels, making it the ideal staycation destination for any food lover.

Sinead Meacle and Enda McEnvoy, owners of Loam, said: “We are reopening in early July and we are really looking forward to getting back and reconnecting with our community, staff and customers alike. We’re rested, refreshed, and with renewed focus and ready to re enter this new changed landscape. It’s been a challenging few months but not without its positives, never had so much time to reflect and reconnect.

“Restaurants and small local businesses are much more than the sum of their parts. They support and showcase a wide network of growers and crafts people, 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. It’s a time for positivity and collective, fresh thinking, and a high time for a good news story like this, Galway business community pulling together and getting our city and hinterland up and running again.”

Kevin Nugent of Tribe Hospitality Group commented: “Salthill in summer means one thing, people coming together to enjoy one of the most iconic seaside towns in the country. This year that has all changed. We are all ready now to reopen and to welcome our customers back in an adapted way, but nonetheless with the same values as always. To bring great food, a shared experience and to create memories.”

Eimear Killian of Brasserie on the Corner explained why Galway’s food culture is so strong: “A melting pot of cultures and flavours, Galway’s food community always ensures that there’s a plate for everyone. Whether you’re dining in or getting your grub to go, there’s a dish with your name on it. Galway is open for business and after years of working to make it one of the food capitals of the world, we are looking to our local communities and people throughout Ireland to shop and support local and make their holiday this year in Galway.“
