Upstairs at West is located in one of the most luxurious AA four star hotels, The Twelve in Barna. Upstairs @ West is the chic and stylish, 2 AA Rosette winning restaurant at The Twelve Hotel Galway, boasting the finest in local produce that highlights the region and the season’s best ingredients. With an emphasis on local, seasonal produce, reduced waste and sustainable practices it seems fitting that West should be recognised as the Sustainable Restaurant of the Year. West features innovative dishes that highlight the region and the season's best ingredients. Everything at this restaurant is prepared 'a la minute' and as such allows Chef Martin O' Donnell and the team to cook to the depths of their soul. All breads and pastries are freshly made on site in The Pins Bakery. Beautifully lit, flattering and gleaming, with a sweet champagne bar, cosy booths and smooth dark wood, Upstairs @ West is a modern take on a classic - a contemporary riff on a New York-style club restaurant.
With executive chef Martin O'Donnell in the kitchen, West Restaurant showcases the finest local produce, sourcing the best wild and cultivated ingredients at the optimum moment of seasonal perfection, prepared and presented in a way that is completely respectful of their individual integrity and totally delicious.
The crème de la crème of the West experience is the Chef’s Table, seating from 2 to 12 lucky guests right beside the Chef and his team – it really is at the heart of the kitchen. The Chef’s Table is at the centre of the philosophy of The Twelve, and West, which is all about having fun, celebrating food, celebrating wine, celebrating life. West is a recent winner of an outstanding TWO rosettes from the AA guide for culinary excellence.
10 minutes from Galway City West is very much about wine. One of Ireland's most exciting collections is on display throughout this restaurant and Wine Maker's Dinners are a regular feature.

Come to the West of Ireland, to relax and enjoy life's finer pleasures. West is the perfect venue for friends or family to get together and celebrate life.
