Outdoor seating Galway - wondering what places offer al fresco dining? Look no further.

Restaurants around the country have been coming to terms with life under level three - with the most notable change being a ban on indoor dining. By no means an ideal set up, particularly in Ireland where the weather so rarely cooperates, several places have pivoted to outdoor dining to allow them to continue trading.

Below you'll find a list of all the places with outdoor seating in Galway.

Good Afternoon Folks! We hope you are all keeping well at this time. In line with the Government announcement last night, from tomorrow we will not be in a position to provide indoor seating for you.This is of course in the best interests of public health and to try to protect the elderly, the medically vulnerable and the frontline workers from this virus. We will be open from 8am tomorrow and you are more than welcome to enjoy a breakfast or a sandwich or even just a hot cuppa on our outside terrace which is protected by windbreakers and a canopy. We will have adequate spacing between these tables.We also of course have a full take away menu with appropriate " to- go" packaging. We would like to take this opportunity to again express our heartfelt thanks to the people of Galway who have completely supported us since we nervously reopened on June 29th. It has been a surreal time for everyone and we are calmly taking things one day at a time. The support that the brilliant people of Galway have shown us since reopening will help us to keep positive for this next way of working from tomorrow and for the next three weeks. We will continue to do what we love which is cooking up a great Full Irish, whipping up fresh to order omelettes, grilling sandwiches at lunch time and of course making our homemade Irish Soda Bread and cakes. ❤❤❤ Stay strong and safe folks and Thank You all! Pamela & Djalel & The Deelys Cafe Team. 😀💖💪🤗 #deelyscafe #galwaycity #staysafe #staystrong

Something to brighten any Monday but well needed today in these uncertain times! ? Thanks to all who have been booking in with us. We’ve been inundated with 100s of messages over the past week. That support means a lot. We’re also sorry to those who we couldn’t accommodate. Serving 15 people max is not something we ever thought that we’d be forced to do. We’ll keep the show on the road and do our best to accommodate reservation requests. . . . Thanks to @milliesadventuresonwheels for sharing these brilliant snaps after a recent visit to us ❤️ Go give her a follow! . . . @galwayswestend @dogfriendlylocation @galwaypubs @dogstrust_ire @dogsofinstagram ?? . . . #dogsofinstagram #doglife #taylorsgalway #millie #dog #doglover #publife #galwaypubs #galwayswestend #cocktails #livingwithcovid #level3 #weareopen #beergarden #galway #galwaycity #lovegalway #dogfriendly #mondaymotivation #mondaymood #mondayvibes #monday #doggo #lovedogs

We are very thankful that we are able to stay operating during these times. We will no longer be able to offer indoor seating as of today... however we are still able to cater for delivery, take away and out door seating. Please if we can all adhere to the floor markers for social distancing and sanitisation of hands at the door, that would be great! . . Also please remember its very difficult to operate under these circumstances so please can we all try to be kind to each other? . . Now more than ever its vital for us to promote local and independent small businesses. Any order made over our own platform would be greatly appreciated by our local staff and drivers. . . Opening times 1 to 10pm every day. . . Thank you everyone and stay safe.
