Traditional material meets modern colour palette to reimagine the bathroom space

June 16, 2021

Concrete embodies strength, is adaptable and durable, combining this traditional material with a modern colour element, A Glyde concrete basin is raising the style stakes when it comes to making a statement in the bathroom.

Made in Ireland, every unit is a bespoke, hand-made and hand-finished piece. Glyde Concrete basins deliver excellent value, style and substance. As all Glyde basins are pre sealed, this natural material is then ideal for hard working and busy bathrooms . Glyde can sink into a one piece look to combine the basin and vanity top, or form a pedestal with the concrete basin making a Glyde basin the star of your bathroom.

The Glyde basin collection includes various shapes, colours and sizes. With the August Basin, customers can choose from two height options. The gentle curve brings elegance and sophistication through its style, shape and substance or with The Joseph, which is a space saver sink ideal for tight areas. It has a flat surface to the side of the sink will allow you to either mount a tap on it or use as a surface to keep soap etc.

“Working with Concrete in the home allows your home to have a personality in rooms that sometimes can be overlooked. We spend a lot of time in our bathrooms and it’s where some of our most peaceful and relaxing moments of the day are. Having always loved the use of natural materials in renovations and home builds, Glyde has a nod and respectful link to Ireland’s concrete traditions. The use of concrete in Ireland can be traced as far back as 1850, in the foundations of a bridge crossing the River Glyde, in Dundalk. As the benefits of this material were realised, concrete was increasingly used as a solution to construction problems at the time. Now we are back to using concrete for all its positive factors such as its flexibility in colour change and its hard-wearing properties” explained a spokesperson for Glyde.

Glyde has also partnered with Carbon Offset Ireland to plant one tree for every basin purchased. This will sequester more carbon than used in our production process.

Light installation goes on maiden voyage on the River Shannon

June 16, 2021

Launching today and running until 20 June, Light Ballet, presented as part of Brightening Air, will transform the skies and surrounding landscape of eight counties with a light installation floating down the River Shannon over eight days. Light Ballet will be visible from up to seven kilometres and covering almost two hundred kilometres. The journey begins each night from dusk (approx 10.15 pm) starting off in Co Roscommon on June 13 and travels through Leitrim, Longford, Offaly, Westmeath, Tipperary, Clare, ending its journey in Co Galway. Light Ballet is presented as part of Brightening Air | Coiscéim Coiligh, a nationwide, ten-day season of arts experiences brought to you by the Arts Council, for June 2021

Created by Irish Light Artist Mick Murray and Lighting Designer Matthew Cregan, the installation is accompanied by a newly composed soundscape by David Kitt. The light installation and soundscape are synchronised in real-time allowing audiences to experience the soundscape at home, along the edgelands or those in-between places through their phones, tablets or computers. Audiences will be able to access the soundscape via the Culture Works ( and Brightening Air ( website from June 13. The artwork will run on a seven minute cycle for four hours each night from dusk and the full show cycle can be seen at any point along the route.

The newly composed soundscape by David Kitt uses a familiar Irish musical time signature, intermixed with words from Poet Nidhi Zak/Aria Eipe and Kitts own vocal. David Kitt brings us on a journey through, river, ‘spirit land’ and the surrounds. Once entwined, these lands, the people, the river and their connection in music, words and song deliver us to a new place, a spiritual journey along the river through its edgelands, to a familiar place. Drawing inspiration from William Butler Yeats’s own Song of Wandering Aengus, the soundscape for Light Ballet was created by David Kitt, with words from Nidhi Zak/Aria Eipe’s poem Wandersong in collaboration with Mick Murray and Matthew Cregan.

West of Ireland inspired line Launches capsule gold collection

February 2, 2021

NCAD graduate and west of Ireland inspired Jewellery Designer Lynsey De Burca who creates minimal aesthetic jewellery pieces has launched a Gold capsule collection.

Living in Moycullen in Galway, Inspiration is found in her surroundings and from her studio there she runs a business that now has an International customer base.

Lynsey marries metal works and captivating gemstones into her creations.  “Through my NCAD Metals Degree I have a wide knowledge of metalworking- specialising in jewellery making and precious metals. This was where I was encouraged to develop my individual craft and design skills. Gold has always been such a love of mine and this year I wanted to celebrate it with its own collection,” explained Lynsey.

After further study at NUIG where she gained a diploma in Gemmology and also a greater draw ad knowledge to make informed decisions when incorporating gemstones into several collections “The Gemmology course provided me with an education in laboratory-based techniques used to identify gemstones and also provided me with hands on experience in identification protocols using a comprehensive collection of gemstones.”

Life experiences, education and a clear passion for creativity has led De Burca to gain a very loyal following. Her online and her pieces are stocked at independent jewellers and retailers across Ireland. For creating her work, she combines many different skills like Piercing, Soldiering, Roller Mill Texturing, Forging and Electroplating,

“For my jewellery; every piece is created in sterling silver and using centuries old craft techniques, each link from every one of my collections is hand forged in my studio in Galway. The links have their own unique fingerprint – they are all different, organic. Each individual one retains an untouched raw texture on the outer edge contrasting against the smooth high polish of its flat finished front. This reflects the rough texture of the rocks along our coastline in repose against a sometimes flat and tranquil silver tide.

For creating her work, she combines many different skills like Piercing, Soldiering, Roller Mill Texturing, Forging and Electroplating, “With over 14 years’ experience in retail that has proved invaluable to me. These experiences in high-end jewellery galleries, applied arts galleries, antique jewellers and fashion boutiques just ignited my love for making beautiful things,” said Lynsey.

The Gold Capsule Collection includes a Pendant, Earrings, and Rings starting from €80.  To shop the collection log onto or get social across Instagram and Facebook.

Shorter hours, consecutive days off leads to better business for Galway Jewellers

October 9, 2020

Shopping locally and rebooting the economy is the talking point right now, but just how does an independent retailer continue to keep their doors open and reinvent the shopping model whilst also benefiting their staffs health and wellbeing?
The west of Ireland’s premier jewellers Hartmanns of Galway reopened their physical doors over one month ago with an adapted business model to suit the world we are all in now.

Maria Hanley who has worked at Hartmanns for over 18 years explains how the adapted hours and business model has impacted positively on her professional and personal life, “With the arrival of Covid 19 many things have changed, some of which have been positive. Working reduced hours and now having consecutive days off has its benefits, both mentally and physically. I find finishing work at 5pm allows extra time for shopping (locally obviously), visiting family and friends, continued education, walking the prom and using the gym along with socialising and the dreaded house work!!  The improved work life balance and realigning how we do business to combat the challenges in this current climate has led to improved productivity. With exciting innovations in how we provide a personal service to our clients that includes the addition of our private diamond viewing room and the Hartmanns by Appointment service, has also helped create a personal customer experience in a positive way.”

Galway gateway to connectivity to Europe

October 9, 2020

The West coast of Ireland and Galway has been designated as a landing location for international telecommunications cables with Increased availability of terrestrial networks across the country enabling this. Farice, which is fully owned by the Icelandic Government and currently owns and operates two submarine cables that connect Iceland to Northern Europe , has been undertaking preparatory work for a new submarine fibre cable from Iceland to Europe via Galway since early 2019.

Identifying a landing site in Europe was a key element of this preparatory work and in addition to this, suitable seabed approaches to Galway and the ability to land a cable in the heart of the city greatly enhances the attractiveness of Galway as a landing site and as a potential hub of global connectivity.  

Explaining why Galway, CEO of Farice Thorvardur Sveinsson commented, “After careful consideration of many factors, Galway was selected by Farice as the European cable landing location.  The Icelandic landing site will be on the Reykjanes peninsula with the final location to be decided during the winter 2020/2021. This coupled with Galway’s reputation for business, education and hospitality will lead to a win win situation. The enhanced global activity provided by the system will be a catalyst for attracting high tech business to the city and the regions.”

A submarine cable route survey and detailed marine investigation has now commenced from Galway to the boundary of the Irish Exclusive Economic Zone. This survey marks an important milestone in the project development as it is the first seabed survey of the favoured cable route.  The results of the survey will support Farice in further development of the project and in validating Galway as the European landing site for the submarine cable.  The project could result in a new submarine fibre cable between Iceland and Ireland becoming operational within two years from financing being secured.

“Ireland has many important attributes that makes it attractive as a destination for this new cable from Iceland, over and above the relatively short distance between the two countries.  Ireland is at the nexus of new trans-Atlantic connections, is a centre of choice for European operations for many international businesses and has a rich and diverse pool of skilled labour in its workforce. Ireland has thus firmly established itself at the forefront of the development of Europe’s digital infrastructure and as such is an important connection point for a new submarine cable between Iceland and Europe.”

“It is often perceived that international telecommunications are carried out by satellite. This is a common misconception and in reality, the vast majority of global communications is carried on fibre optic cables and particularly sub-sea cables. The capacity of such cables is quite incredible and a single pair of fibre strands could satisfy the demands of most of Galway City. Due to the very high capacity of modern systems, subsea fibre cables are incredibly small in size (approx. 25mm diameter) and are very fast and non-intrusive to install. The overall benefits greatly outweigh the short-term inconvenience during the installation. The presence of the Farice system landing in Galway will provide direct high capacity links to Iceland but also to Northern Europe via Denmark and the UK and will greatly increase capacity and connectivity in Galway City and the regions,” said Thorvardur.

Galway Brothers make history as they are named in Top 50 Best Pizzerias in Europe

October 9, 2020

The Dough Bros in Galway City have made history by being named in the prestigious 50 Top Pizza (Europe) for 2020. Eugene and Ronan Greaney who run The Dough Bros were named at number 21 by the judging panel at a ceremony held in Milan earlier this Month. Just two pizzerias in Ireland featured on the list and for the first time the west of Ireland was not only featured but ranked at 21 in Europe.

These awards highlight talent and the dedication of pizza which go beyond the city of Naples.  The ceremony was live streamed around Europe to over 75,000 people and history was made by this Irish family for the very first time.

Since beginning in 2013, The Dough Bros Pizza was inspired by Naples but in this they have beautifully married the best of Irish produce and their own personalities to create what is now a household brand and style of pizza.  The secret is in the making and dedication to quality every time as they prove their dough for between 48-72 hours then pair it with seasonal local produce and finally cooking it in a 500-degree Stefano Ferrara wood fired oven

Working with Toons Bridge Dairy, Sliabh Aughty Honey, Fingal Ferguson of Gubbeen and more, The Dough Bros bring the best of Irish Cheese & Charcuterie meats and pair them with ‘00’ flour and San Marzano Tomato sourced from Naples. Adding elements like Galway honey for a sweetness and a flavour punch found on one of their best sellers The Peter Stinger that celebrates Irish produce at its best. The line up here features Toons Bridge fresh fior di latte (Co Cork), parmesan, fresh basil, Gubbeen Chorizo (Co. Cork) fresh chilli, finished with lashings of Hot Honey (Co. Galway).

“The average level of quality found and verified by our inspectors in the pizzerias in the Old Continent,” conclude the three curators, “is rising steadily with peaks of excellence such as those present in our 50 Top Europe ranking.  We could say that if the Champions League of pizza continues to be held in Italy, progress is being made every year in the other European leagues.  Furthermore, it is no longer only Italian pizza chefs and entrepreneurs that have emigrated abroad (or their descendants) who contribute to the growth of the European pizza culture, but also professionals of diverse nationalities.”

“The ’50 Top Pizza Guide’ to the Best Pizzerias in the World’ is like the Pizza worlds Michelin Guide. We were visited unannounced at our restaurant on Middle Street, upon that visit we were unknowingly judged on the pizza, the ingredients, the execution of the cooking etc but also the standard of service, experience, beer and wine list, “explained Eugene. The awards are based on pure merit and are judged by the best, from Naples Italy, who travelled the length and breadth of Europe to find the Top 50.”

In February, Eugene and Ronan heard from Top 50 Pizza that they had been visited and would learn in a number of weeks if they made the top 50, which would mean a trip to Milan would have been on the cards in September to pick up the coveted award. Fast forward into the middle of lockdown here and the bros received the news that they had in fact made the Top 50.

“This was surreal. We were all in different houses and away from each other so even though we were over the moon about our Top 50 news, we really didn’t feel it as we were apart and in the midst of this pandemic, it was almost like it didn’t seem real.”

The awards in Milan of course could not go ahead but the organisers were not going to let a year’s work not be celebrated and the live streamed the prestigious event instead.

“We were all naturally devastated not to be travelling to Milan, to meet our peers and to experience this brilliant moment for us, our families and our business. But we decided we would not let the big night pass us by. We were adamant to mark this massive international award with those that have been there from the start.”

The Dough Bros went all out, and created their very own black tie, formal event. The location of course was their own family home and with their Tux’s on from Galway Institution for formal wear Martin Feeney, the lads were ready to tune in online and find out just where they were ranked in the Top 50 Pizzerias in Europe.

“We rented tuxes, borrowed a projector from mates, had a slap-up meal with plenty of wine and watched the countdown live with family and loved ones on the big screen. To be in the TOP 50 was a lifetime achievement in itself but to be named at no 21 was something we are incredibly proud of. It’s a huge win for The Dough Bros but also for pizza in Ireland and Irish food in general. These awards rarely pass Dublin so it’s a huge win for the west too. Our goal was to revolutionise pizza in Ireland and put Irish Pizza on the International map, and it feels like we have done that.

“In the end it worked out the exact way it was supposed to. Instead of being in Milan, we were at our home house, where it all began with the food truck, with family and loved ones who all helped us make it in the early days. Just 7 years ago we were in a food truck at Farmers markets so to see our name called at no 21 in Europe was a feeling and a night we will never forget,” said Eugene and Ronan Greaney.

For the latest on The Dough Bros check them out across all social platforms or in house on Middle Street in Galway, in O’Connell’s Bar in Eyre Square Galway or order The Dough Bros at Home Pizza Kits from

A Handsome Expansion

October 9, 2020

Named as Ireland’s best burger in 2019, Handsome Burger have been adapting their business since they started as a pop up over three years ago.  2020 was the same for the burger boys business as every other hospitality owner in the country, they had to close, then reimagine how their business would reopen and would now work for where the world is at now.

Throughout the lockdown, the company which employs 22 people was now back to the founders only, from 22 to 3, this in itself was hard to comprehend when all the plans for 2020 and beyond were of expansion. Handsome Burger reimagined was all about the do it yourself at home burger box, creating Handsome at Home kept the business afloat, it allowed them to bring back staff and it ensured that the brand they had worked on was still relevant.

Bit by bit the Handsome operation expanded, the HQ on Dominick Street which they opened in 2019, was now a collection point and take away only. As restrictions lifted, “We felt we could safely open again. We had the lads in that helped us kit out the restaurant back to fit it out to all the requirements and then had to change this again once we were ready to open for sit in customers. It’s a big expense back on the business but we wanted our customers back in those doors and not to forget what we do best. We expanded our covered outdoor eating area as well, so as to have more space and more options to eat with us,” explained Rory McCormack Owner of Handsome Burger.

Handsome Burger Popped up in Athlone earlier this year at Maisies and it was a very successful bringing the burgers and their buzz to the Midlands. From here other locations were sought and now Handsome Burger is popping up in Limerick at Flannerys and in Westport at Henehans Bar. The collaboration with pubs has allowed Handsome to expand their customer base whilst their ethos and overall food style remains absolutely true to their providence as a market stall on day one. Local meat, freshly baked buns, Irish cheese, spuds and all the signature sauces and cooking methods go everywhere they set up.

Now the Handsome Burger business has taken back on their 22 staff and are operational across three counties, the Handsome at Home burger DIY kits have been shipped to every county in Ireland and they are now launching their own cocktail bar at the HQ. Oh and not to mention they have just launched their own beer brew, the Handsome which is a Helles Style lager available in house in Galways westend.

Talking on Handsome Burger as of now Rory remarked, “Its been an absolutely roller-coaster year. It has been so challenging just trying to get your head around a pandemic, one that affects every aspect of your life. Our business is personal, it’s our absolute life and letting go our staff was one of the hardest days we have had. But perseverance, hard work as well as staying positive and adapting has meant we now have the Handsome team back and we are growing. Each day we take at a time and we are grateful that we have such incredible customers and our Galway home and base has been one of the best things for us to realise out of all this.”

Enjoy the Handsome classic the BOB, The Roost, Loaded fries and of course those traditional triple cooked rosemary fries in Galway, Limerick and Mayo or enjoy a Handsome at home. For more check out Handsome Burger across social channels and at
