What a year!!

After a huge amount of deliberation we have made the decision to not reopen Loam for sit in dining for the rest of this season. We will reopen for the 2021 season and look forward to welcoming back our customers new and old in the New Year.

Ean, our new bakery and wine bar on Druid Lane, will be open over the Christmas season supplying you with breads and pastries and operate a limited evening menu. We will be also selling some Christmas goodies from there, updates via our social social media channels.

Any customers with gift vouchers expiring within this closed period we will happily add 6 months to the end date. Any other queries just drop us a line at info@loamgalway.com. We will be reopening our online booking system early in the new year.

We hope you have a wonderful Christmas and the New Year brings positivity to all. Here’s hoping for a better 2021
Much Love
Enda & Sinead


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 and his wife Sinead Meacle. 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).
