as gaeilge café in galway pota

Pota Café may just be the cutest spot we have ever seen, and it embraces the Irish language too!

Looking for somewhere to enjoy a cuppa, and also our national language? Pota Café is based in An Tulach, Baile na hAbhann in Galway and translates simply to “Pot”. This as gaeilge café is perfect for a spot of breakfast, lunch, and also has a shop inside too. The owner, or Fear an Tí, Diarmuid is originally from Cork and gained his interest in hospitality from working alongside his sister and brother-in-law. He studied at Ballymaloe Culinary School, where he developed a passion for food quality and sustainability.

Diarmuid was also passionate about Irish, and decided to combine his love of food and his love our national language. He hopes Pota serves as a space where people can speak as gaeilge and the language can thrive in its cosy environment.

Pota has a wide ranging menu, serving toasties, eggs, granola, chowder, and salads to name a few. If you’re a little rusty on your Irish, that’s okay too; the menu has the English translation of each dish.

If you’re a local, you can opt for Click and Collect (or Cliceáil agus Bailigh). Catering (Lónadóireact) is also available. And if you’re a tourist, definitely consider popping in, no matter your level of Irish.

Pota opens Tuesday to Saturday from 9am to 4pm.

You can find out more about Pota on their website HERE.
