Aoibheann McNamara is a bona fide trailblazer. Her team at Ard Bia, led by the restaurant's manager, Amelia Colleran, take inspiration from McNamara's love of travel and slow food when it comes to their menu. Vegans will love their vegan breakfast and daily vegan stew of the day; nonvegans will love Middle Eastern and Mediterranean inspired dishes featuring the best of Irish ingredients, such as Gubbeen cheese, Hegarty cheddar, Colleran's ham, Burren Smokehouse salmon and Galway goat's yogurt. Even after nearly two decades of serving food in Galway, the Ard Bia family still have their finger firmly on the pulse.
