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.

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!
