A Galway Guide to Açaí Bowls

In Galway, the border between aesthetics and food is growing fainter by the day. At the forefront of this transition is the açaí bowl. We’ve decided to pull a list together of the best açaí bowls in Galway. Read on to find the next spot in Galway to experience how beautiful, and tasty, a bowl can be!

Nowadays, one of the most artfully arranged sources of sustenance is an açaí smoothie bowl. Here, the picturesque is also palatable. (Note: with some minor internal debate on pronunciation, we’re choosing to go with ‘ah-sigh-ee’)

The vibrant berry that serves as a base for the bowl comes from Brazil, and has become a staple in the Galway scene of health and aesthetics. Made of frozen and blended açaí palm fruit then typically topped with fruit and granola, the presentation is on par with how delicious it truly is.


Wylde is found just around the corner from Hyde Hotel. The café offers sustainable and satisfying food, and on the menu is six different types of açaí bowls! Their signature bowl is topped with fresh banana and strawberries, granola, and chia seeds. Sounds like superfood to us! You also have the option to build your own bowl. Toppings range from fresh fruit, to sweet honey, with nuts and seeds in between.
