A very relaxed and chill Michelin star restaurant with outstanding service and food. This was our first visit to Ireland and my goal was to experience and support the talented foodie restaurants. Loam tasting menu was delightful in every way!

Excellent dinner. We did the 9 course tasting and were impressed by each course. The attention to detail was amazing. Be prepared to be there for a while but it’s a great relaxing time. Highly recommend if in or near Galway Ireland
