5* Food at the Harbour Hotel

As a birthday treat I decided to take a trip to Galwa,  in particular to the newly refurbished Harbour Hotel. The hotel is really well located, only a stones throw from the city centre, taking about 6 minutes to walk in.  Theres also plenty of parking, which up until recently following a few stays in Dublin I never appreciated in a hotel.

First impressions are so important and the hotel did not disappoint. The lobby area is so pretty and nicely decorated. With marble top tables and cosy throws on the chairs, I would be quite happy to stay there for the night!!

Our room was pretty standard but the bed and pillows was so comfy that everything else didn’t matter. Pure Zen.20170606_135508

For anyone who follows us they know that we appreciate good food, in fact when I go away anywhere restaurants is the first thing I research! We were not disappointed by the newly opened restaurant Dillisk on the Docks, there was such a tempting selection on the menu that it made even making a decision extremely difficult.



I started off with Seafood Chowder, which was packed full of various types of seafood in the creamy sauce…..simply delicious.  This came with Connemara seaweed and Guinness bread, I was slightly dubious of the seaweed in it but the bread was light and tasty!

I followed this up with Chicken breast in a mushroom and chorizo sauce with spinach,  It was packed full of flavour and just makes my mouth water writing about it now.

At this point I was pretty full but it was my birthday and it just wouldn’t be right if I didn’t have dessert!  When it comes to desserts I like a warm homely kind of dessert so when I seen apple crumble on the menu there was no decisions to be made. It was exactly what I hoped for…..warm comfort food that reminded me of my mothers cooking! My other half was a little more adventurous and went for a plant pot, this dessert was composed of a panna cotta in a plant pot with seaweed crumb on top, he tells me it was really good (I suppose the fact he didn’t offer any says it all!!!)


Altogether we enjoyed a really amazing meal, the food was presented beautifully and tasted even better! I must also compliment our lovely waitress, whose name I forget to get but she was most helpful and friendly.

I will be most definitely be looking for an excuse to go back!
