Loam is a Michelin-starred restaurant and wine bar located just off Eyre Square in Galway city. It first opened its doors in November 2014 and is owned and run by Head Chef Enda McEvoy. In May 2019, we took the top accolade at the prestigious Restaurants Association of Ireland Awards when Loam was voted ‘Best Restaurant in Ireland’ 2019.

At Loam – meaning ‘rich, fertile soil’ – we focus on modern ambitious cooking rooted in tradition. Seasonally driven, we work very closely with local farmers and producers, many of whom are close friends, to get the products we need to reflect and capture the feeling and magic of the west of Ireland. Here’s a little look behind the scenes (video).
