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 destination restaurant map. Outside, the stone building has an eye-catching cottagey look. Once inside, you'll get a lovely warm feeling from exposed stone walls, dark wood panelling and heavy drapes.
This restaurant has an elegant appeal in the evenings, with candles on every table. In fact, it looks rather French Bistro themed in its design. You can have a pre-prandial drink in the bar before going in through the plush red velvet curtains to the restaurant. On the menu, ingredients are locally sourced where possible and carefully chosen. Seafood features strongly on all menus. Fresh Lobster from the Seawater Tank is a popular speciality. Or a signature dish is the now famous Traditional Roast Half Duckling with Orange Sauce. Connemara Lamb and Beef are sourced close. Tempting house desserts round off a great meal. The chefs here concentrate on pleasing the palate in all areas!
Dinner is available every evening with A la Carte and Table D'hote menus. It's advisable to book your table at White Gables. Its reputation as a long standing restaurant of consistently good food equals popularity among its regulars. The wine list at White Gables is well constructed and simply divided into sections such as Swanky wines, Posh wines, Classics and New World and there's a good selection of half bottles. And of course there are some delicious non-alcoholic juices and cordials if you happen to be a non drinker or driver for the evening.
OPENING HOURS: Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings for dinner -6.30pm & 9.00pm.
Closed Sunday-Wednesday and for annual holidays December 23rd to February 13th.
