Loam | Dining in Galway, Ireland

Loam was truly a unique dining experience. I traveled to Ireland just over a year ago and had made Galway a stop during the week I was in the country. A small town with great food and people, Galway should be on your places to go to. 

Loam was on the list of things to do. The food sounded amazingly different and all the chefs have managed to create a seasonal, fresh produce, simple but creative menu. There is also a wine bar inside the restaurant, and it's located just off the Eyre Square in the city. 

We had many amuse bouches (that which I cannot recall) however they were all very good. 

The courses we ordered were from the à la carte side, as there were four of us willing to order each item on the menu and rotate (this way you get to try EVERYTHING as oppose to everyone having the same thing on the set menu which the entire table has to participate.)

Service was friendly and wonderful. If we had questions, the staff were very willing to help. Overall we had a great time and enjoyed all the food. If you get the chance to be in Galway, please go and experience Loam.
