Gallagher’s: Dining in a thatched cottage

 In News

Gallagher’s is a dining experience steeped in history. Established over 25 years, the restaurant has become synonymous with excellence in food and service, but also for its unique environment. Set in the village of Bunratty, just a stone’s throw from the old Castle, Gallagher’s is housed in a charming original thatched cottage, once the home of local trades people, it’s interior then much more homely than its current design.

The restaurant recently received a stylish refit to simplify and modernise the interior, allowing the cuisine to speak clearly about the culinary workmanship taking place in the kitchen.   A mix of both Irish heritage inspiration and contemporary elements means that diners are transported to a simpler time, stripped back of superfluous detail, much like the dishes served at Gallagher’s

In keeping with the seafood theme, a large cane leaping salmon was commissioned for the gable end wall, as well as two traditional currach boat frames that hang from the ceiling along with several bare bulbs. Original church pews were repurposed for the intimate snugs and plenty of books line the shelves as might have been found in the original cottage.  The tables are left free of heavy linens and multiple cutlery sets and candles line every corner, further setting a mood of days gone by.

Outside, the farmhouse-style split door is painted a traditional vibrant red and large rose bushes line the exterior wall, such is the favoured flower for cottages such as these.

Gallagher’s is a unique experience not just for its award winning food, but also for the experience over all – a little taste of Ireland both yesterday and today.
