Galway City, Galway

Aniar: Galway

Aniar restaurant Galway City.

Five Star Aniar is a terroir based restaurant located in Galway’s West End. The word terroir is usually associated with wine-making: the combination of factors, including soil, climate, and environment, that gives a wine its distinctive character.

In the case of Aniar, the word is used in order to describe the way in which our food comes from the specific place that is Galway and the west of Ireland.

"We hope to reveal the distinct and various food stuffs that make up our particular landscape, through our farms and the wildlands and shores that surround us. The natural course of the seasons will dictate our ever-changing and evolving menu."

Owned and operated by Jp McMahon and Drigín Gaffey who brought us Cava Bodega and EAT Gastropub, Aniar was awarded a Michelin Star for 2013, 2014 and 2015.

Opening Hours: Tues – Sat: 6pm to 10pm
