Trieste Café & Wine Bar

Trieste Café & Wine Bar Opened on Valentines Day 2020. It was a dream to open our own cozy and cute Café & Wine Bar.

Our inspiration – Trieste in North-East Italy, famous for its visual splendor, gilded angels, sunrise-coloured facades, a port city of latticed alleyways and hushed boulevards. And home to James Joyce in his earlier years!

Trieste is nestled on Buttermilk Walk, just off Galway’s main thoroughfare, in the shadow of The Augustinian Church – Our appetite is to create a European styled Café Bar.

Bright, airy and spacious by day; warm, enchanting and relaxed by night.

We started our now famous Trieste Sharing Boxes in April 2020 to keep busy during Covid times, and we were amazed at the response. They are now available 7 days a week on our Online Ordering Website.

In service, both Indoors and on our heated outdoor area. Thursday 5pm Friday 5pm Saturday 4pm Sunday 4pm

Serving seasonal charcuterie & cheese boards, using fresh Irish produce, along with cured meats from the continent. A carefully selected wine list combining Old World classics and a New World sense of adventure.

We really hope you enjoy our taste of all things Italy, Spain & France.
Kate & Barry Donovan.

Tribal Foods/Heneghan’s Nurseries

Tribal Foods was established in 2014 by husband & wife team, Liam and Theresa Heneghan, to create a unique range of sauces, jams & chutneys made using produce grown on their farm in Athenry.

The Heneghan family built their first glasshouse in Galway in 1935 and are the largest glasshouse growers in the West of Ireland. All the crops are still soil-grown traditionally, and sustainability is the cornerstone of production. The main crops grown on the farm are tomatoes, peppers & chillies, but also grow a large range of other fruit, vegetables and herbs for use in their sauces.

As all of their sauces are designed around the fruit & vegetables grown on the farm, this has led to a selection of original recipes with a flavour profile all of their own, like the award-winning ‘Strawberry Chilli Dressing’ and ‘Red Pepper Jam’.

No artificial colourings, flavourings or preservatives are used and everything is made in small batches on the farm.

Micil Distillery

Micil Distillery was named in honour of our great-great-great grandfather, Micil Mac Chearra, who began distilling illicit poitín in 1848 on a Connemara hillside. Our family have been crafting exceptional Irish spirits on the shores of Galway Bay ever since, and we represent Ireland’s longest unbroken family distilling tradition. For over 170 years our family have preserved these traditions, skills and recipes, handing them down by word of mouth through the Irish language from generation to generation.
