Chef Con Cleary

Chef Con Cleary’s passion for cooking led him to move from his family’s farm in Kildysart, County Clare, Ireland to Galway City in order to attend culinary school. After graduating, Con began working under Ireland’s top chefs in Galway’s most recognized restaurants and hotels. After spending a year working in Vancouver, British Columbia, where he expanded his culinary expertise, Con returned to Ireland and obtained his first head chef position in Galway’s renowned Latin Quarter. Con’s menu at Rare Olde Times will include many traditional Irish recipes which he has updated in order to incorporate today’s fresh tastes while maintaining the integrity of the ingredients and continuing to showcase Ireland’s culinary heritage.
