One of my favourite things to do is go out, eat good food and drink delicious wine. Is it not everyone’s? That’s why I was absolutely delighted to be invited along to The Salthill Social a couple of weeks ago to test out their new evening menu. Anyone that has followed me for awhile will know that The Salthill Social is a bit of a haunt of mine already as I always go there for brunch and coffee. It also helps that it is literally less then a minute from my house! Taking both of those two things into consideration, you could understand why I was so excited to hear they were launching a new dinner menu. Salthill already has a few amazing places to eat but I’m always welcome of new places and it’s really great to see new businesses popping up and the street becoming even busier.
Anyone that has tried The Salthill Social’s brunch will know that it never disappoints so the standards were set at a high standard for their evening menu. I brought my sister/photographer along who is also a fellow foodie. Our mom’s an incredible cook and because of it we love good food, so she was the perfect plus one. It was also a nice way of being able to thank her for having the patience of a saint in dealing with me and taking all my photos. 🙂
On entry, we were greeted by some of the lovely staff, given a glass of bubbly and sat by the window. With that, it was time to inspect the menu. First thing that I noticed, was how extensive it is. There is something for everyone on it. They offer a range of light bites or tapas style dishes, sharing boards, mains, sides and delicious deserts.

Today’s look is about as predictable as I can get when it comes to choosing an outfit and that really doesn’t bother me. I think sometimes people can get so caught up in changing up their look or evolving their style that they lose their own personal style in the process. I love trends as much as the next person, I mean I count down the days until February arrives because I know that with February comes my favourite March edition magazines, so I’m definitely not innocent when it comes to buying into trends and fashion moments. In fact, I love them – trends are fun and exciting and create that buzz in the fashion world that I love so much. But that doesn’t mean that we should forget about our own personal style or that we should feel guilty about returning to the same pieces in our wardrobe.
Last weekend I attended the ACT For Meningitis winter ball and oh what a night it was. I’m never one to say no to getting glammed up and a good night out but I jumped at the opportunity to attend this ball in particular. ACT For Meningitis are an absolutely unbelievable charity and the work they do is nothing short of incredible. Meningitis can target any family and when it does, the outcome can be life changing and devastating. ACT For Meningitis work tirelessly to raise awareness, fund and provide support for families affected by this fast-moving disease. The work they do is so important and that’s why it’s equally important to get behind them and support them whenever you can. It’s not hard to support them when; 1. The work they do is so amazing and 2. You get to wear a pretty dress in the process! View Post
A day filled with craic, culture, good food & wine..sounds perfect right? That’s why I was absolutely delighted to have been invited back to attend this years Campo Viejo Tapa’s Trail. Last year myself & my best friend Vicky attended and when I told her this year I had been invited back, she told me quite frankly under no circumstances was I allowed invite anyone else, so I think that will tell you how much you she enjoyed last year’s event too!
This year’s trail included four amazing well known Galway eateries; The House Hotel, Biteclub, 56 Central and Cava Bodega.
Brunching has definitely got to be one of my favourite things to do, mainly because when you talk about it, it sounds more like an activity rather than what it is – eating, and lots of it. It’s a civilised way of saying I’m going out at noon for a fry up and bottomless bubbles! That’s why I was over the moon to attend this year’s Midsummer Brunch with Absolut to celebrate the end of another amazingly successful Galway International Art’s Festival. The breakfast come lunch was hosted by ones of Galway’s trendiest eateries – Biteclub. View Post
