Description: An Tobar Nua is an Irish and American cafe and coffee shop in a great location, one street away from the historic Claddagh and overlooking the canal in Galway City's popular West end. The delightful ambience inside the cafe is complemented by the original stonework, beautiful seating facing the water and reflective quiet in the atrium. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout. The fare is a mix of cafe favourites with Irish, American and south-west style food, as well as An Tobar Nua's speciality: delicious homemade desserts and scones baked fresh on-site. The extensive menu contains a full-range of made fresh sandwiches, paninis, homemade soups, salads, wraps, rolls and bagels. Breakfast is served all day. The cooked breakfast options include the mega breakfast, breakfast rolls and omelettes. Visitors can also choose something hot off the grill such as hotdogs, burgers and 'Tex Mex' favourites. It also offers great value meal deals. A full range of hot & iced coffees, teas, sodas, speciality drinks and more provide refreshment any time of the day! An Tobar Nua's superb customer service is a highlight and the friendly staff members are always welcoming and ready to chat. The hospitable atmosphere has made it a local favourite among adults, students and tourists alike. Stop in for a cuppa and a chat!

“I had to come back.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2013

I visited this cafe about 3 years ago when traveling. I found it so relaxing to sit in the room by the river and sip a cup of tea. My friends and I would travel around town and seemed to always find ourselves back at An Tobar Nua. It is such a treasure. Even after being gone my friends and I would day dream about being back at this coffee shop. I have returned and it is just as perfect as I remember.

Not sure how many tourists are aware of this cafe but they should be! Great value for money and friendly staff. I have never left hungry or disappointed!
