This restaurant keeps it small and fresh, for a dynamic and optimal experience of culinary goodness and taste and reduces food waste.

Loam's philosophy remains to keep it healthy and local, hence they only use ingredients from the west of Ireland.

Also not tolerating waste, Loam converts final waste to compost which goes back to the plants, boosting their growth.
