A renowned restaurant and coffee shop, Galway Bakery Company (GBC) dates back to the 1930s. Located just off Eyre Square, it is an excellent place for a quick snack or full meal combined with a friendly atmosphere and quality service.
Galway Bakery Company dates back to the 1930s, when Michael Cahill opened a bakery shop and later a popular café. The business thrived and during the war years it was the only local bakery still supplying bread to out lying areas, especially Connemara.
Galway Bakery Company underwent a complete refurbishment in 2004, taking the GBC into the new century. Careful attention is spent every year to redecorate the entire premises and revise and revitalize the extensive menus. However, the key to success has always been to do the simple things well and maintain the tradition of excellent value and personal attention to each and every customer.
The restaurant serves lunch and dinner daily. It also caters for small parties and larger groups and welcomes bookings ranging from communions and confirmations to stag and hen nights. For fast, friendly service, visitors can also drop into the coffee shop located on the ground floor.
GBC has been recommended in Berlitz, Guide Du Routard, Frommers Rough Guide and Rick Steves' Ireland.
