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

Great gastro pubs like John Keogh’s demonstrate Galway’s sky-high standards, and the city’s unique hospitality.
The extraordinary transformation of Galway’s food and hospitality cultures can be seen through the prism of the success of John Keogh’s – The Lock Keeper. In its first year of business, the bar garnered award after award for excellence as a gastro pub, and for stellar standards of service. But that was only the beginning, because with dynamic Connemara chef Joe Flaherty in the kitchen, John Keogh’s has driven the culinary standards ever higher, establishing themselves as a beacon of good food and good times in Galway’s bustling West End. The character of the kitchen can be seen in their distinctive signature dishes – nut crusted duck cake; whiskey-cured salmon; Guinness and Clew Bay oysters – but in truth everything about John Keogh’s is distinctive, and dynamic.
