Chef Laura Rosso

We began our company Chef Laura Rosso selling burgers for friends from home.
A few months later we opened our first physical location in Galway City (still as a takeaway) during the lockdown in April 2020 and also we started up our company officially.

Only one year later we opened the doors to our customers at our current location in Salthill.
Since then we are receiving positive feedback from our customers and we are happy with everything that we have achieved so far!

Builín Blasta Cafe, Bakery & Retail

At Builin Blasta Cafe, Bakery & Retail we love food, we love café culture & we love to be a little different. Our café is family-friendly, dog-friendly, and wheelchair friendly and overall, just friendly!

Specializing in wholesome, tasty comfort food, we are dedicated to quality from start to finish; our breads, cakes & pastries are made in-house, we have a selection of homemade retail products available to purchase in-store or online and we cook all your food fresh, to order.

Our menu features a range of traditional Irish and European dishes including; freshly made soups, sandwiches and salads, savoury tarts and hearty main courses.

Did we mention we have a sweet tooth? Our dessert counter is laden with yummy cakes, freshly baked scones, tray bakes and savoury treats to enjoy in the cafe or take away with you to enjoy at home. It’s a daily struggle for our customers to leave without having at least a slice!

Is grá linn bia, is grá linn cultúr na gcaiféanna & is grá linn a bheith beagáinín difriúil. Cuireann muid fáilte roimh theaghlaigh, madraí, daoine i gcathaoireacha rothaí, cuireann muid fáilte roimh chuile dhuine!

Tá scil ar leith againn i mbia a chruthú atá folláin, blasta agus a oireann do riachtanais chothaithe, agus tá muid tiomanta don cháilíocht ó thús deireadh. Déanann muid chuile arán agus císte anseo, agus tá rogha táirgí miondíola ar fáil le ceannach sa chaife nó ar líne. Déanann muid i gcónaí do chuid bia uilig a chócaráil go húr de réir d’ordú féin.

An chéad chéim i dtreo bia iontach ná comhábhair a fháil go háitiúil. Tá dlúthchaidreamh againn le mórán dár gcuid soláthraithe agus déanann muid iarracht iad a choinneáil chomh háitiúil dúinn agus is féidir, ag baint úsáid as scoth na dtáirgí le cinntiú go bhfuil fíorbhlas an Iarthair a fháil ag ár gcustaiméirí.

Tá réimse miasa traidisiúnta Éireannacha agus Eorpacha ar fáil ónár mbiachlár – anraith, ceapairí agus sailéid a dhéantar go húr, cístí sáibhre agus príomhchúrsaí breátha.

Ar luaigh muid go bhfuil muid an-tugtha do rudaí milse? Bíonn an t-uafás cístí áille, scónaí úra, agus leicíní bácála ar fáil ar chuntar na milseog le hithe ar do chompord féin sa chaife nó le tabhairt leat le hithe sa mbaile. Is deacair an caifé a fhágáil gan fiú slisín a bhlaiseadh!

Galway City Distillery

Located just 60 seconds from Eyre Square in the heart of the city, Galway City Distillery is a unique addition to Galway’s bustling food & drink scene.

Galway City Distillery operates with the core belief “Of here. Made here. For here.” and that inspires everything we do. Ingredients are locally sourced (you won’t find lemons or limes here but you will find bog myrtle and seaweed!) and we are working to drive the entire distillery towards zero waste and fully renewable practices. We are proud to produce our own spirits on-site and to bring the fine art of distillation back to the centre of the city. Everything is carefully considered and the drinks showcase the rich produce available from the Irish countryside. A must for any discerning imbiber.

Launched in March 2022, Galway City Distillery has 3 different spaces;
An Caifé – a bright, elegant café serving the best coffee roasted in Galway – open from 12pm Monday – Wednesday and 8am Thursday – Sunday.
An Sconna – a stylish cocktail bar with drinks created by a master team of mixologists and flavour experts using all locally sourced ingredients that change with the phases of the moon.
An Scoil – Galway’s first flavour school where you can learn how your favourite spirit is produced from grain to glass. A must for gin lovers, create your own spirit with your favourite botanicals for a truly memorable experience. Perfect for group gatherings or corporate events.
