White Gables (Food Shop & Cafe)
The village of Moycullen, just outside Galway on the Clifden road, is home to White Gables restaurant. Ann and Kevin Dunne opened here in 1991 and since then, have very firmly established themselves on the culinary destination map.
In 2009 Enjoy...from White Gables was born. A pretty as a picture food shop offering customers the choice of enjoying White Gables delicious food at home. Chefs prepare, cook and bake fresh produce daily, so you can experience real home cooked fresh food in your own home. You can't help but be breathtaken by the gorgeous pastry counter - cupcakes, tarts and cakes, beautifully decorated and presented - extremely hard to resist. Home baked breads and scones, a fabulous deli counter for take out lunches and sandwiches and the ready to go foods mean queues at some times of day. Worth the short wait though. Shelves hold a wealth of Irish and European artisan produce. Storecupboard necessities and specialities you need when you want to cook up a storm yourself. Also find quirky kitchen items, like the vintage style logoed tea towels which are works of art in themselves. Frame one and put it up on your kitchen wall, just like they have done here in the small cafe adjoining the shop. You'll find aprons, tea sets and cups, coffee equipment and mugs, and many unusual items just begging to be bought and used at home, or given as a gift to a food loving friend or relation. This higgledy piggledy little culinary shop is a gem of a find in a village situated on the main road to the west. Ann and Kevin have created a wonderful addition to the village for its culinary inclined residents - and a great stop off shop and cafe for those passing through on a visit.

Enda McEvoy is one of the quiet gentlemen of Irish food. Not for him the ranting and raving, or crashing pots and pans around. Enda goes about his business in a calm, considered manner. But don’t be fooled by his cool exterior. The humbleness of his gentle personality belies a chef with a will of iron, who really knows what he wants in his kitchen.
