Galway Oyster House


In September  (or maybe even August) 2021, the signage and seating were suddenly gone.   It appears that Galway Oyster House has closed without even making it to its first Oyster Festival.

The original story

Opened in early April, the Galway Oyster House originally aimed to be a serious foodie take on a traditional seafood takeaways.  (For now at least - they likely do have space to offer some eat-in opportunities once Covid-19 restrictions allow.)

Located in the former Riordan's restaurant, which was a traditional Irish in the simplest of ways, GOH was advertised as "gorgeously homely fish hub " and is situated right in the heart of the city's dining district.   The narrow three-story building dates back to the 1600s, and was restored by the Riordan family in the 1990s.

They did appear to have a slight hiccup over the opening, but with a last-minute menu change open Thursday-Sunday, 12 noon - 7pm.
