About West Restaurant
West is a modern take on a classic - a contemporary riff on a San Fran-style club restaurant. Beautifully lit, flattering and gleaming, with a sweet champagne bar, cosy booths and smooth dark wood, West is a proper restaurant, a grown-up room and a reminder of why some things in life are too good to change.
Our belief is that by working with great local food producers, we can both impact on our region for the better and, at the same time, give you the opportunity to taste the true West of Ireland.
In a nutshell, we are all about innovative cooking, outstanding wines, artisan products, and locally sourced earthy ingredients.
Chef Martin O' Donnell and his brigade cook contemporary dishes with a nod to tradition. Everything is prepared in season and to order to best showcase this fabulous local produce - true to the region, true to the season.
Our sommelier’s wine list is justifiably famous – winning The Best Wine List in Ireland and World Wine Spectator awards of excellence over and over again. Our wine collection is on display throughout the restaurant and the Champagne Bar serves up to twenty different wines and bubbles by the glass. Fergus, Fergal or Mathieu will be happy to talk you through a few choice glasses or bottles.
All our breads and pastries are made freshly daily by Deirdre and her team in our onsite bakery in The Twelve.
West also boasts a funky Chef's Table located right in the heart of the kitchen. A personalised menu is prepared with specially selected wines for each course, perfect for your unique dining experience for two or private party of up to twelve people.
Find us on the first floor of the Twelve Hotel, just ten minutes from Galway city, in the picturesque village of Barna.

Food was delicious. Service was excellent and our waiter couldn't have been more helpful. Felt very safe with great space between tables. A wonderful experience
On a recent stay in Connemara, we had a really lovely treat of Dinner at your fabulous West restaurant. Two friends recently had stayed there and I can echo the positive comments they had about the lovely Twelve Hotel. We opted for the Á Lá Carte. It was utterly delightful, beautifully presented and the service was really good, and professional & friendly. We loved the decor, lighting and the very pleasant, curved booth-type seating we were allocated. I opted for Vegetarian dishes & they were top-class. The he had a superb Lamb dish. Thank you also for how safe & comfortable we both felt, during our visit. Very good Covid 19 regulation observance
An absolutely fabulous, top class restaurant in a beautiful seaside village. The food is outstanding. The staff were unanimously welcoming, friendly and charming. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we had dinner here again the following night - we were delighted to be able to get a table!
we are sorry we had to cancel our reservation within a week due to COVID restrictions on movement from Dublin...however we were delighted with the amazing and professional responses from everyone we came in contact with and will definitely be returning in the near future.
Fantastic restaurant, exceptional food. Great to have the option of wine pairings when only having the a la carte. Fergal was attentive and informative. The bread, amuse bouche,starter and main were stunningly tasty, both of us agreed the desserts needed something extra to elevate to the standard of all the rest of the courses, however they were still nice. The meal was included in the package but the pricing is very reasonable. Would 100% recommend.
Lovely meal with very friendly and efficient staff. Food was excellent and very nice atmosphere
Excellent restauran. Amazing food. We will definitely return.
Superb night in West..delicious food and impeccable service. We can't wait to return.
Excellent service from Fergal, Mathieu and Roy.
