We're Reinventing Zappi's

Zappi’s Restaurant is undergoing a transformation. We’ve decided to shift away from our traditional Italian-style offering. While we’re closed, we’re working hard behind the scenes on an exciting new concept. Although we don’t have a reopening date yet, we’re eager to bring fresh creativity to the space. Gift vouchers will be accepted at Imperial Hotel Galway and our revamped restaurant. Thanks to our loyal customers and suppliers for their support – we can’t wait to welcome you back soon!

The city of Tribes

Discover Galway

The County of Galway is split between a buzzing city centre, filled with shops, restaurants, bars, theatres, quaint cafés, and pubs filled with pints and craic, and the rugged natural landscape of the west coast. Situated in the city, Imperial Hotel is walking distance from the best nightlife. However, it’s easy to venture further afield and experience water sports, walking, cycling and pony trekking. Buses depart from Eyre Square regularly – all you have to do is enjoy every minute!
