'Ireland's largest gin parlour' is coming to one of our favourite counties

A gin parlour with 500 varieties of everyone's current favourite tipple.

Yes, a venue hosting a space that's been described as 'Ireland's biggest gin parlour' is opening this month and we might be a little excited.


There's no denying the popularity of gin in recent times and although some people might be over the craze, it's still a very big deal in Galway.

So much so that Hyde, a new bar in the city centre, is opening on April 27 and we have a feeling it's going to be a huge hit with both locals and tourists.

Hyde wants to do things a little differently and their Gin Bible is sure to be a huge hit, explaining the extensive list of gins and the country each one originates from.


One of the gins on the list is Unicorn Tears Gin and with a name like that, you just know people are going to be snapping and gramming photos galore.


The taste is important too and this one is described as a bittersweet gin experience and wait for it, it has an iridescent glittery appearance. 

There's also a 'flower wall' containing over 7,500 flowers which will be the focal point of Hyde and again, you'll be seeing a lot of that on social media.


The whole venue sounds like Instagram perfection with graffiti artist Kathrina Ruperit designing the striking murals which adorn the walls of the city's newest bar.

If you're not into gin, fear not because there's also a cocktail menu, local craft beers and Japanese beer on draft.

Step 1 complete. #Hyde

As a Galway native, I might be a little biased when it comes to the City of the Tribes but I'm not the only one with a lot of love for this particular county.


It has a long list of must-try eateries and atmospheric venues with Hyde Bar & Gin Parlour, located on Forster Street, likely to prove a popular spot for summer 2018.
