First up we have The White Strand, a modern bar and restaurant located in Connemara on the famous Wild Atlantic Way. The restaurant prides itself on being a hub for great seafood with the mussels and seafood chowder standing out as popular menu choices. Non fish fanatics are equally catered for by a delectable selection of various meat dishes with gluten free and vegetarian options also available. On top of that, everything is said to be made from scratch with the only slightly less healthy options being located on the dessert menu should you have room after! The prices for this restaurant are fairly mid-range, on average between €7 and €26 and it is known to cater for all ages and occasions.

Location: Maol Reidh Hotel, Tullycross, Galway.

Located in the heart of Galway city, Aniar establishes itself as a “terroir” restaurant which in this case signifies its dedication to supporting and serving local, organic produce. The menu provides a wholesome selection of meats, vegetarian options and their famous home–baked soda bread which they offer with a range of Irish cheeses. The restaurant has received many accolades for its high quality food including the Supreme Award for “the business that most strongly reflects the Good Food Ireland experience” in 2012. It also runs a boutique cookery school for locals and visitors which further promotes the good food karma vibe. There are lots of options for clean eating in Galway but this is one which has to be experienced first hand to truly enjoy. Prices average at between €37 and €61 so it may suit those who have a bit more reach with their budget.

Monroe’s Tavern is the venue that sets itself apart from all others in Galway. The food served at Monroe’s is provided at the price of regular pub grub but the dishes are slightly more elaborate than the typical pub food standard, diminishing those greasy stereotypes. Monroe’s really makes the effort to add as many healthy dishes to their menu as possible with the contents ranging from grilled calamari to lobster Bolognese to teriyaki salmon and more. Portions are said to be filling and they also cater for vegetarians as well as those on a gluten free diet. So for the price of regular pub food, you can still commit to some clean eating in Galway whilst treating yourself and your pocket!

Location: 14 Dominick Street Upper, Galway

So there you have it, eating out when you’re trying to choose a feel good meal doesn’t have to come at a high price or feel like a chore. If you can afford paying extra for the added frills, then go for it but whatever you’re budget or preference, there are plenty of ways to keep up your clean eating in Galway.
