An Irish Treasure

 I’m back from Galway, where I went for the relaunch party of McCambridge’s fantastic food emporium on Shop Street in the city centre. They have redone the shop, and it looks fantastic (and I’m not just saying that because there is a Murphys Ice Cream scooping cabinet in the heart of it). Galway is always wonderful, and between the Volvo Ocean Race and the party, there was an extra-special buzz.

McCambridges is a Galway stop that no foodie should miss, and it is well worth a detour. The McCambridge family’s love of food is obvious, and their pride in Irish foods is inspiring, with loads of local treasures and interesting nibbles. There is a new cafe and even tables outside to savour their delicacies.

There are few retail businesses in Ireland that blow me away, and this third generation business is one of them. Check it out!

It’s Official – Murphys in Galway

mccambridges All eyes are on Galway at the moment, with the Volvo Ocean Race arriving into town and the great news that the Irish/Chinese yacht, the Green Dragon, finished third into Galway, after a very difficult start. Congrats to the whole team, and I sure wish I could have been there, for the party at 4am, when the boat arrived!

mccambridges2I will, however, be heading up to Galway very soon, because we’re proud to announce that there is now a Murphys Ice Cream scooping cabinet in McCambridge’s fantastic food emporium on Shop Street in the city centre (that’s Natalie McCambridge with Sean in the photo above). 

There will be a grand opening on the 3rd of June. I’ll announce the specifics on Facebook and Twitter, and I hope that anyone in the Galway area will be able to join us for the fun.

In the meantime, if you’re in Galway, stop in for a taste!
