Mulberrys Restaurant

Set back from the coast road to Spiddal in a line of pretty shops with ample free parking, this is one of the newer restaurants in Barna - a village close enough to Galway to be considered by many as a suburb.


The contemporary duck egg blue and cream shopfront is very inviting and this is usually a busy spot, offering well thought out menus and family friendly dining. 


Owners James and Deirdre Cunningham are very hands on and there is a real focus on local, seasonal produce - James can often be found foraging amongst the rocks on the nearby shores - and there's an emphasis on European style cuisine and seafood. As it's right next door to Ali's Fish Shop, you are guaranteed the seafood will be as fresh as can be and the quality of ingredients, reasonable prices and the casual elegance of the decor all add up to a very good dining experience.


Just inside the door there is a cosy bar area with a short menu board of tasty nibbles like crab cakes, prawns pil pil, calamari, spicy meatballs or chicken liver paté to enjoy over a glass of one of their extensive range of wines, including featured wines highlighted on a specials board. The wine list is well priced for the quality, offers a fair choice by the glass and half bottle - and there is also a full bar with beers on tap.


They also have a comfortable waiting area to accommodate their busy takeout trade of pasta and bistro dishes. The friendly staff are quick to attend to arriving guests, greeting children by name as they come in, inquiring after new baby sisters and brothers as they hand the take-outs over the counter to a steady stream of locals.


There's an emphasis on healthy eating, including a lovely 'real food' children's menu and a 'healthier lifestyle' take away menu; a matching product range is under development.
