GREAT WESTERN GREENWAY
09) Rua and Cafe Rua
Having sourced the best of local ingredients for over 10 years in their original Café on New Antrim Street, Castlebar, the Mc Mahon family opened RUA in 2008. The split-level building contains a cafe upstairs overlooking the indoor market downstairs selling delicious locally sourced ingredients. Pop in for a lunch of bacon chop, spinach and champ, pick up some fishcakes for dinner, which you could serve with some Rua tomato and apple chutney and Stephen Gould’s leaves, their homemade brown bread and follow up with a selection of local Irish cheeses from the Sheridans-supplied selection or some apple tart. Listed in the Mc Kenna’s ‘100 best restaurant guide’, the New Antrim street café is also a winner of Good Food Ireland’s ‘Café of the Year’ award.
