The Huntsman Inn

All the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.

Stephen Francis and his crew in Galway’s The Huntsman are amongst the best hospitality teams in the west. Mr Francis and his team are meticulous and self-critical people, and when you eat and drink and stay in this elegant suite of restaurants, bars and smart rooms, you quickly see just how good these guys are. The cooking, from breakfast through dinner, is excellent, the menus packed with clever modern Irish food that the kitchen and front-of-house team deliver with precision: fishcake with orange and beetroot salad; cod in Galway Hooker batter; Brady’s sirloin with glazed carrots and garlic purée. Every return visit brings evidence of slow, steady improvement – just check out that fine craft beer menu which they have assembled – and we love the rooms, which are spacious and graciously styled, and which are kept to the same meticulous standard of housekeeping as every other part of this inspiring destination.
