Executive Head Chef Joe Flaherty


Hailing from the wilds of Connemara, Joe leads the Brasserie on the Corner kitchen team, infusing his cooking with early influences from the region.

From the beginning of his culinary journey, Joe immersed himself in the best West Coast seafood, Connemara lamb, and organic vegetables, shaping the foundation of his culinary career. While Joe now describes his food as smart casual, the ethos remains unchanged: utilizing the best seasonal and local ingredients.

With over 20 years experience cooking for Galway diners, he has brought his unique style and success to various kitchens. However, it’s at Brasserie on the Corner that Joe has found the perfect match for his style and cooking philosophy. His freedom of expression, coupled with world-beating local produce, establishes Brasserie on the Corner as the epitome of casual Irish dining.
