Welcome to Gallagher’s of Bunratty and congratulations on your recent engagement! We know more and more couples are shying away from the traditional wedding reception, and we also know that standards are higher than ever before when it comes creating the perfect event. This is why we feel Gallagher’s is the ideal location for intimate, alternative wedding celebrations

Whether you are looking for a cosy rehearsal dinner with your close friends and family, a ‘day after’ dinner,  or the wedding reception itself, Gallagher’s can create a magical evening for you and your  guests, filled with good food, drink and entertainment, all under our traditionally thatched roof.

A View to Remember

Set in the heart of the historical village of Bunratty, the restaurant is just minutes from Limerick and Shannon. The famous medieval castle of Bunratty, just a stone’s throw from the restaurant, is the perfect backdrop to your wedding photos, as is our charming thatched cottage restaurant. Inside, our recently redecorated interior blends old-world Ireland with new: traditional currach boats hang from the ceiling while a hand woven rattan salmon features on the gable wall. Candles and fresh flowers adorn every table, while the cosy, firelit bar is filled with whiskeys, gins, stouts and more, to satisfy your discerning guests.

A Taste Sensation

The award winning kitchen is led by Head Chef Kieran Murphy who has created a selection of beautiful dishes worthy of a fine dining restaurant, for example:

  • Gin and Pink Grapefruit Marinated Salmon Gravadlax with Grapefruit Aioli, Grapefruit Gel and Caper Popcorn
  • Warm Confit Duck, Celeriac Remoulade, Red Cabbage Chutney, Celeriac and Roast Hazelnut Mousse
  • Baked Salmon seasoned with Campo Castillo Garnacha Salt, Pearl Barley, Butternut Squash and Chestnut Risotto, and Mulled Pickled Wine Red Onions
  • Roast Chicken Supreme with Black Pudding Potato Cake, Shredded Brussel Sprouts and a Creamy Bacon and Mushroom Sauce

Our Wedding Planners have excellent local knowledge and can assist with musical accompaniment, florists, accommodation, ceremony location, celebrants and everything in between.
