Summer comes in the form of the yummy berry and banana smoothie at The Galway Roast in Tuam. This pretty pink combination of summer berries and banana looks as good as it tastes. They also have a tropical fruit smoothie that bursts with unique flavours and gives some badly needed refreshment on a hot sunny day. When you are visiting Tuam, get your fruit fill at The Galway Roast and be ready to take on the rest of your day.

Chef Laura Rosso
One of Galway’s newer arrivals, Chef Laura Rosso in Salthill is quickly becoming one of our fav spots for a bite to eat. It’s no secret that they serve up super tasty grub, but their smoothies are just as impressive. Choose from five flavours such as Mango Tango and Super Strawberry. They’re refreshing and fruity and better yet, on a nice day you can enjoy them in the lovely outside seating overlooking Salthill. Bliss.
