009 Galleon Grill O'Connell Street Limerick

For those who liked to eat out in the late 1960s and early 1970s the Galway owned Galleon Grill was the place to be seen. Limerick is probably famous these days for its fine food and excellent restaurants but in the mid to late 1960s we didn’t have such a plethora of “eateries.” Lydons of Shop Street, Galway, saw a niche in the market and opened the Galleon Grill just down from O’Mahony’s Bookshop in O’Connell Street. As the name suggests it had a sea-faring theme to the restaurant which used the ground floor and basement.
