Gallaghers Seafood Restaurant launches new menu

The menu at fine dining restaurant, Gallagher’s of Bunratty has gone from strength to strength since the appointment of Head Chef Kieran Murphy last year, formerly of Adare Manor.

Gallaghers Seafood RestaurantGallaghers Seafood Restaurant is an award winning seafood restaurant set in the picturesque village of Bunratty, just outside Limerick City. Serving guests fresh, local produce every evening, the restaurant has become a mainstay for many locals and visitors alike. It is housed in a charming thatched cottage, next to its sister restaurant, J.P Clarke’s. Gallaghers Seafood Restaurant is the winner of Best Seafood Restaurant at the Irish Hospitality Awards 2016

This season, Kieran has created a well rounded and inspired menu that offers guests a satisfying and luxurious dining experience.


Drawing on the restaurant’s proximity to the Atlantic, Kieran has included several wild fish on the Gallaghers Seafood Restaurant menu, with dishes such as the Doughmore crab salad, pan fried fillet of trout with samphire and a baked whole black sole. It is also the season for fresh lobster, with the native Doonbeg shellfish featuring twice on the Gallaghers Seafood Restaurant menu: served with choice of garlic or lemon and herb butter, or alongside a 10oz steak for those of the Surf & Turf persuasion.

For seafood classicists, the Gallaghers Seafood Restaurant menu features a hearty chowder, Gigas rock oysters Gallaghers Seafood Restaurantserved with a glass of Guinness and of course steamed Atlantic mussels in a garlic and white wine sauce (for any non-purists, Kieran has also created an Asian-inspired sauce of coconut, chilli and coriander)

The Gallaghers Seafood Restaurant menu isn’t solely dedicated to seafood: dishes featuring other locally sourced produce include a classic grilled rack of lamb with rosemary and redcurrant jus, and the baked St Tola Goats Cheese Parcel with pineapple and chilli preserve in a filo pastry.

Desserts are all made in-house and include a toffee and blueberry crème Brulee and the famous Gallagher’s sticky toffee pudding.
