The Kings Head

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

In the thirty year period during which Paul and Mary Grealish and their family have run Galway’s iconic The Kings Head, Galway has transformed from a sleepy, shaggy university city, on the westernmost point of the most westerly part of Europe, into a dynamic destination which today ranks amongst the world’s most desireable places to visit. These two facts are, of course, related. It’s precisely because families like the Grealishs so brilliantly manage, maintain and develop marquee addresses such as The Kings Head, offering unique hospitality, signature cooking, and good cheer, that everyone now wants to visit the city. Galway has outpaced the capital, Dublin, in everyone’s bucket list. The city is renowned for great food, great hospitality, and for great times. And it is all thanks to people like Paul and Mary and their family, professionals who respect and preserve the history and uniqueness of the city, whilst always working hard to make it a better place. They are titans of Ireland’s tourism culture.
