Aniar is a Michelin Starred restaurant located in Galway’s West End. Our food comes from the specific place that is the west of Ireland. We hope to reveal the distinct and various foodstuffs that make up our particular landscape, through our farms, the wildlands and the shores that surround us. The natural course of the seasons dictates our ever-changing and evolving menu.
The kitchen is led by chef patron JP McMahon. Alongside using wild and foraged local ingredients, Jp likes to foster old traditional cooking and preservation methods, such as curing, pickling, smoking and fermenting. His aim is to look back in order to look forward: to the future of Irish food. It is only by understanding our culinary past that we can unlock the untapped resources of our future.
Our tasting menu is an immersive dining experience of Irish food through the ages with a contemporary filter.
Aniar also runs a Boutique Cookery School. The School offers one-day workshops as well as six-week classes. The classes run by JP McMahon offers hands-on experience.
