Fresh From irish shores to your plate

Anchored in the cultural hub of Galway’s vibrant docklands and overlooking the boats floating on the industrial inlet in Galway Bay, visitors to Dock 1 are treated to a feast for the eyes as well as the tastebuds. You only have to look out the windows to see the source of the seafood featured prominently on the menu. Dock 1 prides itself on using the freshest of Irish produce and the best local suppliers.

Number 1 Dock Road is a building steeped in history and over some years, dock related business developed in the property, including a Seaman’s Home for travelling sailors, and a bar and grocery on the ground floor of Dock 1. let to Thomas Conroy. While renting the bar his son, Padraig O’Connaire, was born. Padraig was fascinated by the Gaelic Language and absorbed it readily. He became deeply involved in writing and teaching Irish, expressing the belief that Ireland would only become free after it had developed its own language and culture. He went on to pursued a full time career in writing - a mixture of polemical political essays and short stories illuminating Irish life.

During WWII, the docks (and Ireland) prospered supplying the agricultural supplies England needed. Unfortunately once the war was over, depression set in. The bar closed in 1957 and lay vacant until it reopened 1969. In 1976, the building was left to the present owner, Robert Delargy. Several renovations have been carried out since, to bring it to the warm and inviting bar restaurant you see today.

Delicious and very fresh! Artists in the Kitchen and Charmant service
