We are a family-run restaurant based on Quay Street. As a family, we have lived and worked on Quay street since 1902. We have a long history of looking after customers, with Martine having worked in Nanny Mac’s fish shop across the road (McDonagh’s Seafood Bar) at a very young age.
Martine’s venture started on Quay Street in the early 1980’s with the sale of home brewing equipment from her family’s shop window. As her business flourished, she opened her own premises and established the first Wine bar located outside of Dublin in Ireland. Renowned for challenging conventions of the time and leading the way for female entrepreneurship, Martine’s evolved into the Restaurant and Wine bar widely known and loved by people of Galway and around the world today.
