The Dough Bros
Galway’s Dough Bros isn’t just the grooviest pizza palace in the Western world.
It is all that and more: it is a phenomenon.
Like everyone else, we are in awe of the way in which these dudes have built their business. They started when chief Bros Eugene Greaney lost his job. Here’s what he did next: he and his partners got a food cart and started making pizzas, then quickly moved on to pop-ups, then to a 40 seater bricks-and-mortar restaurant on Abbeygate Street, and then on to a 70 seater restaurant in Cathedral Buildings.
And all in three years.
Come on! Who can do that?
Dough Bros can, is who can. They can do it. So, they did it. Only in Galway.
They serve pizzas, but these are no ordinary pizzas. They are inventions, tributes, acts of cultural genuflection and cultural sabotage – a Banh Mi pizza that becomes a Po’boy pizza, anyone? The last time anyone in Ireland made pizzas so complex and cultural, it was the great Bernadette O’Shea in Sligo’s Truffles Restaurant.
They have their own beer made by Independent Brewing in Carraroe, and there are wines by the carafe. The design of the room is crazy, the cluster of bodies in the room is always mental, and the pizzas are as good as they get. Do not miss Dough Bros.
