Culture & Candlight returns to Gallagher’s

 In News

After a successful first run of our new series of cultural events at Gallagher’s, the team have put their heads together to create another event comprising the best of fine dining and local culture.

This time we will be joined by writer, playwright, performance poet and director at the Limerick Writer’s Centre, Fiona Clark Echlin. Inspired by the themes surrounding Gallagher’s Restaurant, such as gastronomy, the seas and local history, Fiona will present an evening of storytelling and poetry, working with both the classics and her own writings.

The gourmet tasting menu will feature 6 courses created especially by Head Chef Kieran Murphy working with the best of local fish, meat and produce; each savoury course will be complemented by a glass of wine, selected by our Guest Sommelier Peter McCabe.  The evening will begin with a drinks reception in our bar as local pianist Catherine Clohessy treats our guests to a piano recital. The aim is to create a holistic dining experience that leaves guests fed in both body and spirit.

If you would like to find out more about this event, or would like to make a booking, please call 061 363363 or email [email protected]
