John Keoghs - Gastro Pub
The international food media have already been coming up with the headlines suggesting that Galway could be the next major European food destination. And when – not if – Galway takes its place with Copenhagen and Madrid and other food destination luminaries, it will be important to remember that Galway’s strength is not just its starry chefs, but instead it is its strength in depth. In Galway, from the simplest snack to the blow-out extravaganza, you eat well everywhere.
And this is exactly where John Keogh’s – Gastro Pub comes into the picture. This bustling and vivacious pub has won every possible award, and for a simple reason: they offer real, West Coast, modern Irish cooking, served in a beautiful bar, and it is so much better than your expectations that its impact is enormous. John Keogh’s shows how Galway has rebirthed itself, both the city and the fast-changing West End, by virtue of exceeding expectations. Standards of service, comfort and cooking are sky-high, as high as the confidence of the people who run the businesses. So, you get a cosy seat in Keogh’s and enjoy a 6 hour slow roasted lamb shoulder with potato terrine, peas, honey carrots and lamb jus; a 10OZ Irish dry-aged rib eye steak with pickled onion rings, roasted vine tomato and flat mushroom, topped with gorgonzola and toasted pine nuts; seafood linguine packed with prawns, mussels, clams and salmon in a white wine and garlic sauce, with cherry tomato & samphire. Homemade desserts satisfy every sweet tooth with their signature lemon tart a true culinary star. Every bite is as good as you hoped, and better than you expected. And that is exactly how Galway city will become a global food destination.
