The Great Galleon €50k Giveaway

Landmark Salthill restaurant celebrates 50 Years

The Galleon Restaurant in Salthill celebrates 50 years this November and is splashing out on a €50,000 giveaway. To mark the half century milestone of this landmark eatery - which was purchased on November 13th, 1964 - the Galleon are offering a food and drink bonanza to encourage diners to create new memories and reminisce on the old.

From November 13th, the first 2,500 customers will receive a €20 Galleon note, which can be used on their next visit to the popular restaurant - when they spend €50 or more.

This third generation family run business has become a Salthill institution. It was first purchased by Jimmy Lydon 50 years ago, passing to his son-in-law, John O’Sullivan in 1987 and since 2009 has been owned by his son, Roger O'Sullivan.

Famous not only for good food and a family friendly atmosphere, the Galleon restaurant sits atop a treasure chest of chocolate gold coins for children. Legend has it that a galleon ship deposited these coins in a cave beneath the restaurant after it crashed into a cliff. Now the trove has been extended to adults as the €50,000 Galleon giveaway begins.

“Our family is so grateful to all our team of today, and of all those from the years gone by, for all their loyalty, commitment and hard work over the years,” says Roger O’Sullivan.

“We are also truly appreciative to all our local community and our visitors over the years who have being so loyal and committed to The Galleon over the years, without whom we would not have lasted the test of time.

“The reason for our success is thanks to the collective part that each of them have played, and so we thank-you all for being a part in the journey towards reaching this momentous occasion.

“We are now running our €50,000 give away as a gesture to say a big thank-you to you all and also to celebrate this milestone,” he concludes
