Éan bakery, cafe / restaurant and wine bar opened at the end of October 2020.
This was right in the middle of Ireland's Level 5 Covid-19 lockdown, so to start with they focussed on the takeaway bakery /cafe side, with limited hours and a menu only pastries and hot sandwiches. But there's a connecting doorway with the adjoining Druid Theatre:  once theatre resumed, Éan became a great pre restaurant / winebar as well as a welcoming daytime cafe for local office workers and residents.

It's in Druid Lane, just up from Flood Street, in the space which was previously Cactus Jack's Mexican restaurant - the entrance is just down from the Hall of the Red Earl.

The proprietors are Enda McEvoy and Sinead Meacle.  They also own Loam, one of Galway's two Michelin-starred restaurants, and the menu follows Loam's seasonal and innovative approach with breakfast treats, pastries and bakes, lunchtime sandwiches including pickles, ferments and charcuterie, and evening / winebar small and/or sharing plates.

Pork belly hot sandwich tasted fabulous - and will be even better once it doesn't have to be a takeaway!
