opened in November 2010. Taste Matters is a cosy little dining room situated at the west end of Loughrea town, just under 30 minutes from Galway city. We are two friends, Jirka and Mike, and together with our great little team we have been serving delicious and interesting food and drinks in a relaxed casual atmosphere.

We like to support ‘local’, from vegetable farmers and butchers, through accountants and graphic designers, to painters and musicians, and they support us back with their best produce and work.
