King's Head Bistro

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

If you were a first time visitor to Galway who found yourself sitting in the Bistro of The King’s Head, with a plate of Kelly’s oysters in front of you, and a pint of King’s Head Blood Red Ale in your hand, it’s likely you would be saying to yourself: it can’t get better than this. And you would be right. Paul and Mary Grealish and their family run the pub of your dreams, and offer the food of your dreams, a palette of great ingredients and dishes from the Wild Atlantic Way: west coast seafood chowder with their classic brown bread; Aran Island goat’s cheese salad; hake with foraged sorrel butter; rhubarb crumble. The cooking and the service offer that generous, soulful Galway hospitality that is simply unique, and The King’s Head is, by every measure, a Irish classic, a Galway gem.
