an eclectic guide to Galway's café scene

Marco's Cafe


The Italian-themed Marco's Cafe was one of a long list of café's that have operated in this premises in Lower Newcastle, just opposite University Hospital and beside the ubiquitous Super Macs in the shopping string which almost no-one calls "Scholar's Walk".

No idea when it opened, or when it closed again - but the last time I went past there was another name on the door.

It's a nice building - with some interesting interior-design touches, although the outdoor seating fronts onto a busy road for both traffic and pedestrians so isn't the most relaxing.


The heavy-weight banana-porridge muffin was the perfect pick-me-up after a trying session across the road - it was so good that I forgot to take a photograph until I was half-way through.
