Churros n' Coffee


Churros Nation closed for good on Christmas Eve 2022.    Farewell, fried-pastry frends.

Sign in a Galway city cafe door, posted on Christmas Eve:  WE ARE CLOSING - We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your custom over the last few years, but due to multiple increases in the costs of electricity, imports, rates and others over the last 12 months, we have had to make this decision.  Churro Nation, 24/12/2022

Original listing

This new twist in Galway's thriving coffee scene opened in the first week of June 2021 - just in time for summer's first bank holiday weekend.

The closest cafe to St Nicholas' Collegiate Church, they're in the shop which was Archie's ice-creams last summer, and before that Cafe Express, next door to Roots.  This building is known to older Galwegians as Thimble Castle  and the long-time home of Mullens butcher-shop.

There's now a building-size mural painted on the gable-end, which brightens the view from St Nicholas market / church-door.   Hopefully the city planners won't notice!

Churros are dough snacks from Spanish and Portuguese cuisine, traditionally deep-fried - and this shop is sticking to the tradition.   They've featured on the menu in Cava and Hooked and in the occasional food-stall, but this is Galway's first shop-based takeaway churros experience.

The coffee is branded Coffee Nation, which this doesn't seem to have any other outlets in Ireland at the moment.
