The Top 5 Pizza Places in Galway

It is fair to say that in Galway we are blessed with an amazing amount of wonderful restaurants. Throughout the city and it’s outskirts, you’ll find something for everyone to enjoy. Pizza is a firm favourite treat for most people, ourselves included, so we have put together this list of the ‘Top 5 Pizzas Places in Galway’. They are, in no particular order;

1. The Dough Bro’s Wood Oven Fired Pizza

No discussion around the best Pizza in Galway would be complete without The Dough Bro’s. Now entering their 5th year of business, the story of how Eugene & Ronan set up their now famous business is one we’re all familiar with. Thier Pizza is legendary, as is their unbeatable customer service and charm.IMG_1906

2. Pizza & Pasta Napoli

If you have ever ventured to Galway’s Latin Quater on a night out, you will surely have stopped off at Pizza & Pasta Napoli afterwards. Not to be confused with a typical place you only visit after a night on the town, Pizza & Pasta Napoli are specialists at what they do. Each slice is a mammoth portion in itself and you can take it with you and sit at the Spanish Arch on a nice day. 35742274_2134851853400820_3213784355260334080_o

3. Fat Freddy’s Restaurant

With 30 years in business, you’ll struggle to find a restaurant more steeped in Galway tradition than Fat Freddy’s. Generations have been raised here, marriage proposals a regular occurrence and some of Galway’s finest Chefs have started out working here. While they offer a variety of other foods, their best selling dishes would be their Pizzas. They also do Vegan Pizzas if you’re that way inclined. 37778261_2020093704690136_538002335234785280_n

They also run a Birthday Club every month through their social media where you can get yourself a free dessert on your birthday when you buy a main.

4. Crust Bucket

The new kid on the block, Crust Bucket offers you the chance to eat on a double-decker bus! Situated in the beautiful Beer Garden of Carroll’s Bar, Crust Bucket’s menu contains a mixture of flavours and combinations. With their large selection of beers, it’s the perfect stop off on a Friday evening to get the weekend started.header-image

Top 5 Places To Get Ice-Cream

Ireland as a whole is in the middle of the best start to a Summer in a very long time. Galway, in particular, is one of the nicest places to be in the country on a Summer’s day. As we’re not used to this kind of weather, we need to make sure we keep cool. Sales of ice-cream are expected to skyrocket with long queues in some outlets across the city. We’ve put together a list of 5 places to get the best ice-cream in the city which has been recommended by our readers. They are (in no particular order);

1. Gino’s Gelato

When we said they were in no particular order, the cream has indeed risen to the top here. Gino’s Gelato is busy all year round, no matter what season. Situated at the very top of shop street, it’s in a prime location for passers-by. What attracts people here though is its mouthwatering selection. 485953_290443524358572_368722409_n
No trip to Galway is complete without a visit to Gino’s


2. Hunky Moos

If you’re looking for something a little healthier, look no further than Hunky Moos. They’re specialists in making Froyos (frozen yogurt) and once and for all prove that great taste doesn’t require a sugar and fat overload. 29510988_2019189994777780_5418569280291685101_n.jpg

You’ll find these guys on Abbeygate Street just up from AIB. If you’re that way inclined, they’ll even throw in a scoop or two of whey protein for you!

3. Capones


Need I say more?

Heading outside of the city now, Capones may be known more for their Pizza’s than anything else, however, their desserts speak for themselves. They won’t break the bank either so if you’re looking for something a little bit fancier and want to avoid the hustle and bustle of the city, Capones is for you.

4. The Creamery

Let’s face it, if we did a list of the best places to get ice-cream and didn’t include The Creamery, we would look like idiots. Salthill’s finest, if you’re planning on walking the prom, a stop off at The Creamery can improve anyone’s mood.


They take the simpler approach to some of the others listed here, focusing on the basics which they get right every single time.

5. Murphys Ice Cream

The new kid on the block when it comes to this list, Murphys is still at the early stages of its lifetime in Galway but it’s already a firm favourite. You’ll find a unique blend of offerings here which their very friendly staff are more than willing to let you try out first.


Now don’t get me wrong, there are a whole host of other venues worth popping into but these were the choices that got suggested to us by the most people. Got another suggestion? Feel free to post it in the comments below #GalwayGrub
