PICS: 13 Galway brunch dishes to get you in the mood for food

Brunch in Galway

Already planning Sunday brunch? Because same.

It’s one of life’s greatest pleasures and I reckon I’ll pick avocado toast over saving for a mortgage for many years to come. That’s future me’s problem, am I right?

Sweet or savoury though, that is the question.  I sway between the two – we all know I love pancakes, but there’s a lot to be said for a poached egg.

Here are 13 delicious Galway brunch dishes to get you in the mood for food.

I saw an Instagram caption recently that described waffles as pancakes with abs and honestly I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it since.

Vegans eat breakfast too and The Kitchen in Galway Museum puts on quite the spread.

Get the royal treatment with a serving of Eggs Royal. You deserve it, princess.

You had me at halloumi.

It may not be much to look at, but Finnegan’s do a mean fry with lashings of tea to wash it down. No frills, just good Irish food. The kind of joint your dad would love, so treat him to breakfast and introduce him to the glory of Sunday brunch.

Pancakes again? Hey, I already told you I love the fluffy devils. Top with blueberries and lemon curd to bring them to the next level.

I have yet to visit Gourmet Food Parlour out in Salthill but believe me it’s top of my list. No better way to start your Sunday than with a stroll down the prom and a spot of brunch. Delish.

I wasn’t a fan of French toast until recently, but now I can’t get enough of it. Making up for lost time I guess.

The breakfast burrito from Dela is the perfect combination of breakfast and lunch – brunch at its finest.

Another one for the vegans, Ard Bia is renowned for its brunch offerings so make sure it’s on your list. The food is tasty and adventurous…hello, seaweed pesto? Yes please.

Galway brunch and Corrib House Tea Rooms are synonymous for me -you can’t go wrong here. Seriously, I can vouch that anything you order will be good.

If big breakfasts aren’t your thing, then head to Kai for a slice of this.
