O'Grady's on the Pier: Galway

With tumbling waves on a sandy beach and the cry of seagulls and the sun setting over the ocean, you will have a dining experience you won't forget in a hurry.
This award-winning restaurant is located in the idyllic village of Barna on the shores of Galway Bay, 6km from Galway City Centre, and, being close to the sea, has instant access to daily catches, bringing unbeatable freshness to every dish. Specialising in oysters, mussels, fresh fish, crabs, scallops and lobster, O'Grady's on the Pier exhibits great attention to detail, always utilising the best seasonal produce.
The charming nautical-themed interior boasts real fires, candles in the windows, fresh flowers, and cheerful, attentive service. There is an extensive selection of wines and beers, including six house wine options.

With a prime location on Barna Pier, it's a seaside fisherman's catch at its best.

O'Grady's on the Pier has been the lucky recipient of numerous awards over the years. Among these are the “Best Seafood Experience 2011”, adjudged by the Restaurant Association of Ireland and the prestigious Hotel & Catering Review Gold Medal Award for "Best Bistro & Brasseries" in 2009. We were also delighted to accept the "Best Seafood Restaurant in Ireland" 2008 award from Georgina Campbell.

What an amazing place! Beautiful views, delicious food expertly served by friendly, efficient staff. We enjoyed a lovely, relaxed lunch with our family, celebrating my husband’s birthday and were delighted when the staff brought out a delicious dessert and the entire room sang ‘Happy Birthday’ The chefs, waiters and manager deserve to be congratulated.

"A delicious meal in a cosy restaurant on the west coast of Ireland" We had a beautiful meal in this small restaurant situated by the pier in Barna, Co Galway. The lovely, simple interior of this old building, the friendly service and the deliciously fresh produce make for a winning combination. The menu has a great selection of seafood dishes cooked in a variety of styles; classic, fusion and the more traditional. Highly recommended.

"Reminder of how good seafood can be" Fantastic seafood menu with great service and lovely view. Perhaps a little quick for some between courses, but everything totally delicious. Recommended for those of an age to appreciate really good fish dishes.

"Hooked" Dined at lunch on Sat. Must say for the price we paid, quality of food & service received this was one of the best restaurants I have had the pleasure of visiting. Excellent. From the tasty soft fresh homemade brown bread served once we sat down...& plenty of it! To the simlpy oh so fresh & tasty plaice we shared as a starter, followed by a absolutely gorgeous cod & carb burger and crab claws to the simple vanilla ice cream. It was all wonderful, tasty, fresh, and good value. Well to all in the kitchen, your passion for good food is clearly evident on the plate, keep it up. To our friendly, attentive & happy server's it was a joy to be served by people who enjoy what they do! Definitely will be recomending. Well done to all...great meal with great service.
