A new casual dining eat in area has opened at Galway’s Dockside Deli, serving fresh local seafood from 9am every Monday – Saturday inclusive.
Dockside Deli is run by Galway Bay Seafoods, a family run company that has been providing quality seafood to the people of Galway for over 70 years.
The launch of the new onsite dining area is the next step in establishing The Dockside Deli as a must-visit seafood destination along the Wild Atlantic Way.
Visitors can sit down in the newly-renovated space for a casual meal, and pick up fresh fish from the counter on the way out. There is also free parking outside.
Noel Holland, owner of The Dockside Deli, said: “My father set up Galway Bay Seafoods in 1950, and though tradition is strong within the business we have always adapted and changed to keep ahead of the pace. This new evolution of the business is an extension of our commitment to develop a unique seafood destination in the heart of Galway city. We want to provide an authentic taste of The Docks for the people of Galway and beyond.”
The Dockside Deli’s in-house chef Dara O’Neill said: “This is such an exciting project and one I’m very proud to be a part of. With fresh fish and seafood coming straight off the fishing boats at the docks into us to prepare and serve – you just can’t get fresher than that!”
The eat in menu includes seafood chowder with seaweed bread; line caught salt & paprika squid with smoked garlic mayo; and beer battered fish of the day with homemade twice-cooked chips and homemade chunky tartare sauce.
Visitors can also indulge in a seafood platter featuring an assortment of freshly-caught fish and shellfish. Sides include fresh salads such as Connemara seaweed salad; line caught squid salad and picked local samphire.
The opening hours are Monday to Wednesday, 9:00am-5:00pm, with extended opening hours for both the seafood counter and deli, as well as the dine-in area on Thursday, Friday and Saturday until 8:00pm.
