Our Story

Since opening our doors in 2012, Brasserie on the Corner has built a reputation for delicious food and a friendly welcome.

It’s a place where we strive to serve top quality dishes using local produce, there is something on the menu for all tastebuds & dietary requirements, and you’ll always be looked after by our professional team.

Wine has become a huge part of Brasserie on the Corner’s identity, with regular wine clubs and tasting events hosted during the year.

Over the years we’ve been fortunate to receive so many prestigious awards for our food, customers service and wine selection. These accolades take pride of place in our restaurant and are a testament to the dedicated work of our team.

A host of a celebrity chefs such as Rachel Allen, Catherine Fulvio and Roz Purcell have joined us in the kitchen for some fantastic food events. With hopefully more to come in the near future.

Brasserie on the Corner is also home to Blake’s Corner Bar – your quintessential Irish pub where you can enjoy a friendly welcome, live music at weekends, a warm open fire during the chillier months and an impressive drinks selection.

Blake’s is also a founding menu of the Galway Whiskey Trail and was also awarded Best Bar Food in Ireland at the Irish Bar of the Year Awards in 2019. Find out more about our bar Here.
