Loam is a Michelin-starred restaurant and wine bar located just off Eyre Square in Galway city. It first opened its doors in November 2014 and is owned and run by Head Chef Enda McEvoy. At Loam – meaning ‘rich, fertile soil’ – we focus on modern ambitious cooking rooted in tradition. Seasonally driven, we work very closely with local farmers and producers, many of whom are close friends, to get the products we need to reflect and capture the feeling and magic of the west of Ireland
In September 2015, Loam became Galway’s newest Michelin star restaurant when it was awarded a star in its first ever mention in the prestigious guide. The achievement was made all the more impressive by the fact that the restaurant had only been open for ten months at that point. On 3rd October 2016, it was announced that Loam had been included in the 2017 Michelin Guide UK & Ireland and had retained its star for a second year.
