Café Rua was opened by Ann McMahon in New Antrim Street, Castlebar over ten years ago with the aim of producing uncomplicated food using seasonal and local ingredients. The business that Ann started is now run by her children Aran and Colleen, and the aim remains the same.


Good Food Ireland is an industry driven food tourism organisation which was established in November 2006. Many good food operators in a cross-section of establishments all around the island from restaurants to accommodation, pubs to food shops to cookery schools wanted to be recognised and endorsed for their commitment to using Irish, local and artisan food produce. They wanted to share experiences and be cooperatively marketed to the domestic and international tourist. Agriculture and Tourism, two vital economies for Ireland have so much in common and are yet so far apart. Through Good Food Ireland the industry from both these sectors share a common belief and come together as one. Good Food Ireland brings you the visitor or domestic consumer what we believe is the only way to get a true taste of Ireland. The Irish Restaurant Awards recognise achievement and excellence in the Restaurant and Hospitality Industry throughout the 32 counties of the Island of Ireland in 21 categories and celebrate all aspects of the Industry from Chefs and Restaurants, Cafes and Gastro Pubs, to Food Producers, Local Food Heroes and Cookery Schools.

We went to the original Cafe Rua.The Mezze consisting of Carrowholly cheese, quince jam, beetroot salad, carrot salad, boiled egg & mayo, green leaves, pate, brown bread and a glass of lemonade was very good and good value. We expected to see local cured meats on the plate as well. There were many interesting things on the menu. The cheese & quince jam were so good that we went to Cafe Rua deli afterwards to purchase some.

I am a regular at Cafe Rua both the cafe and the deli are great and they are improving the choice at the deli all the time. The food upstairs is a good example of local food produce being used simply and cooked well. Cafe Rua support local food producers and have a range of their own chutneys and dressings which are very good. I am a ceolica that loves food and thankfully they can always cater for me which is a relief as so many places can't. It is always busy in here and you may need to wait a little while for a table but you can share tables too. There soup and salads are favourites of mine and they are always nice and fresh. Cafe Rua proves that simple is best and I will be back again and again.
