One restaurant down the main road on Salthill always comes to mind when the seaside haven is mentioned or recalled by folk young and old; in fact, it would be almost impossible to speak of Salthill without mentioning it, so defining a role it plays in the community. It is, quite literally, woven into the fabric of the village, and one would have difficulty finding an establishment more firmly-rooted and memorable than this, The Galleon Restaurant.
The Galleon is now in its third generation of family since it opened its doors as “The Galleon Grill” in 1965 - beginning under the ownership of Jimmy Lydon, passing to his son-in-law, John O’Sullivan, in 1987, and then onto the current third-generation of family in 2009, Roger O’Sullivan. The Galleon is a “family business” by its very definition, and also happens to be one of the most family-friendly restaurants one could possibly find. “
Every customer has been treated the same since the very first – with respect, professionalism and gratitude.
Described as “truly the most charming of family restaurants”, all should raise a glass to The Galleon for having brought excellence to the table for 45 long years.
