Dock 1 Seafood Bar & Restaurant, Galway, was declared Best Seafood Restaurant in Connacht at the YesChef Ireland Awards announced on the 24th of October in the Strand Hotel, Limerick.
Dock 1, which is co-owned by Aoife Buckley and Bríd Reddan, has a waterside location on the Docks. This provides the perfect setting for diners to enjoy local seafood and shellfish dishes expertly cooked by award-winning head chef Brian McMonagle, who has already achieved multiple awards, for his seafood expertise in particular.
Shane and Nicci Smith from YesChef Ireland said, “Congratulations to the team at Dock 1 on their award as Seafood Restaurant of the Year 2018 for Connacht. Their focus on using only the finest, freshest seafood from local suppliers, beautifully cooked by chef Brian McMonagle and served by a front of house team that are knowledgeable and enthusiastic were the key factors in achieving this award. We wish them every success for the future.”
Aoife Buckley said, “Here at Dock 1 we are delighted to have received the YesChef award for Best Seafood Restaurant in Connacht. Through hard work and a passion for local fresh food, we aim to create an environment and atmosphere that offers our guests a wonderful dining experience, although the real reward is the smiles on our customers’ faces as they leave. Here’s to many more happy days at Dock 1.”
