Galway Daily food drink Connacht Hospitality Group takes the stress from planning a night out

Planning a night out always had the potential to be a complicated affair, trying to get a group of people to agree where to go, and when.

Lockdown has only made this more challenging, with the limits on the amount of time you can spend at any one location, and the need to book ahead to be certain of getting a table at all.

The Connacht Hospitality Group are taking the stress out of coordinating multiple venues with their new Dine Around offering for some of the best loved bars in Galway.
