Best Child Friendly Restaurants in Galway

Are you looking for child friendly restaurants in Galway? There are so many great restaurants in Galway to choose from, but the problem often for parents is which one will cater for all of the family. Here’s the Mykidstime Best Child Friendly Restaurants in Galway.

A lot of the restaurants may have small dining rooms and will not look too kindly on bringing buggies into them, some may even refuse you entry! Where possible bring along a car booster seat or simply ask if the restaurant has an available baby seat. Here’s what we think makes a restaurant child friendly.

Garden Cafe at Brigit’s Garden, Galway

The Garden Café is open to families whether or not they are visiting the Gardens. For those visiting the Celtic Gardens there are lots of fun things for children to explore from the kids’ discovery trail to lots of natural play.

The Three Towers Eco House & Organic Kitchen, Galway

threetowerslogoOpened in 2012, The Three Towers Eco House and Organic Kitchen, Loughrea offers a peaceful retreat from the day to day bustle. Beside the Slieve Aughty Riding Centre, The Three Towers serves delicious organic food, and is proud to be only one of 2 restaurants in all of Ireland to claim organic status. It is a wonderful place for a party or family day out – bring your family for Sunday Lunch or come for High Tea, and sit in their beautiful dining room or enjoy the views sitting outside snuggled up with a warm blanket, a fire and a hot drink. Combine your stop at the cafe with a walk on the nature trail, or a pony ride for the kids.

    Capones is a great family friendly restaurant in Galway. Very reasonable rates for kids options (and not just pizza!)

      While I hear the food and service at Capones are fabulous, I was not impressed to hear from friends who took our daughter there recently that even after being told no thank you, the little lady does not drink juice that a juice was brought to the table and given to her. She didn’t drink it,, the waitress had no idea why she is not allowed juice and just popped it down in front of her. That is something which to me should not happen having been told no thanks.

    I second Capones in Knocknacarra – very reasonable and lovely staff who are very nice to the children, great menu as well! We have three under 6 years of age so it is always our first choice!

    It’s The Twelve absolutely all the way for me. Great kids menu, friendly staff, colouring books and amazing pizza. We meet all our neighbours with kids there so hard to get away from them. Worth the drive.
