Merrow Restaurant launched at PÁLÁS Arthouse Cinema in Galway on Friday 28 September. This is a new addition to Galway’s thriving dining scene that will further enhance the city’s flourishing reputation as the unofficial culinary capital of Ireland.

Galway’s newest destination restaurant, set on the ground floor of the Pálás cinema in the Latin Quarter, debuts its new menu; a celebration of locally-sourced food inspired by the flavours and textures of a West of Ireland winter.


Taking its name from the mythical mermaids of ancient Irish legend, Merrow is poised to elevate pre and post cinema dining to another level. The restaurant opens from 8am to 9pm Monday to Thursday and to 10pm on Friday, 10am to 10pm at weekends for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The seasonally shifting menus at Merrow bring together produce from Galway and beyond as well as making the most of foraged ingredients from the wilderness of the nearby coast and countryside. 

A carefully curated list of cocktails, spirits, Old and New World wines, beers, craft brews, soft drinks, tea and barista made coffee are available throughout the day and night and can also be taken in to enjoy in each of the screens. Whether it’s just a quick bite to eat before a film or spending the evening catching up with friends, dinner can be a swift or leisurely affair with starters, mains, sharing platters and dessert. 

The new menu is a comforting proposition for the dark nights ahead; confit duck with figs, rocket and pomegranate salad or an Angus Steak with mushroom Wellington, chard and jus. Finish with the now signature must-eat: a dish of chocolate, popped corn and caramel that is a sophisticated nod to the restaurant’s cinematic setting.
