Here Are The 7 Best Places To Get Your Chicken Wing Fix In Galway

Alana Laverty

When it comes to dining out chicken wings are always a reliable option, they’re the ultimate crowd-pleaser.

And Galway has some pretty incredible options. From straight up sticky BBQ to Korean fried wings – we’ve tried em all.

So here’s our pick of the best spots for wangs in G-G-G-Galway…

Biteclub, Upper Abbeygate Street

€7.50 for sweet ‘n’ spicy sticky wings in the coolest street food club around? 


Buddha Bar, Mary Street

These crispy Dakgang Jeong Korean chicken wings are fried in a sweet and spicy yet acidic paste. Dusted with turmeric and served with homemade chilli sauce, they are 100% gluten free

I have gone here for cocktails and wings many a time and have never been disappointed. It’s €5.50 for a single portion but it’s generally better to opt for the €10 sharing portion ‘cos everyone is gonna wanna try some. 

Clever, I know…
