McSwiggan’s is part of the fabric of Galway life, a landmark within this vibrant city for over 30 years. It has been seeping up stories since it evolved from a lively country stores trading potatoes in the iconic Woodquay Market, into a sanctuary to catch-up, hide-away, eat, drink, laugh and make memories.
McSwiggan’s offers visitors a welcoming and relaxed environment whilst retaining its traditional family-run spirit that has become synonymous with it. We provide honest wholesome hospitality at a fair price with top quality food and drinks served by friendly people who love what they do. Our award-winning restaurant serves delicious dishes and offers a warm and vibrant ambience over three floors and our traditional ground floor market bar is a local institution.
McSwiggan’s offers something really special – a fantastic wide-ranging menu, with Irish, European and Eastern influences there are delicious choices to suit all palettes and purses. Whether you are feeling more indulgent or would like something lighter (including lots of great gluten-free options), all our food is carefully prepared from the freshest, local, top quality ingredients.
Famed for our succulent steaks our beef is cut to your taste and cooked to perfection at 350° in our unique Josper charcoal oven, which means all the flavour and all of the juiciness is sealed in.
Our commitment to quality food, extensive wine list and a real love for what we do has made us popular with families and friends looking for full flavours, innovative ideas and dishes prepared by passionate chefs.
