Christmas Crackers at Rua

Nollaig at Rua, Co. Mayo, Irish Food, Good Food Ireland

While many of us get into the Christmas spirit in the month of December, Rua Café and Deli go the extra mile with their enthusiasm for the festive period.

Run by siblings Aran and Colleen Mcmahon, this place is about all the good things Irish food has to offer, dressed up in a bright colourful space with staff who smile, clearly enjoy what they do and are happy to talk about the food they dish out. With locations both in New Antrim Street, (Café Rua) and Spencer Street, (Rua Deli) in Co. Mayo, there is something for everyone, whether you want a quick coffee and sandwich on the go or a relaxing sit down meal. 

At Christmas time Rua step it up a gear with their festive offering. Throughout the month of December on Friday Nights, Rua is the place to be as they host dinner at Café Rua. Enjoy a meal created using the wealth of local producers from the West as you relax and catch up with friends.
