This is a really lovely restaurant with top quality healthy, organic food. It's a bit crowded as successful restaurants always are, so it's wise to book ahead.

Funky little restaurant on the shore of the river... Tiny and reservation recommended. The food was fresh and delicious, the waitstaff friendly, offering excellent menu suggestions. Despite the crowd we never felt rushed. Enjoyed the dining experience immensely.

One of Galway's most enduring restaurants, housed in one of the city's most iconic restaurant spaces, Ard Bia has always placed as much emphasis on community experiences and aesthetic stimulation as on serving great food in a fun environment. We believe in having roots in a place whilst having an identity that transcends location and takes inspiration from around the world.
