A hell of an achievement.

A Galway restaurant has been listed in the top 100 pizza places in the world at a prestigious awards ceremony in Naples, Italy.

The Dough Bros, located on Middle Street in Galway city, was named by 50 Top Pizza, The Guide to The Best Pizzerias in Italy and Worldwide’s 2022 awards as the 79th best pizza restaurant in world.

The Dough Bros Restaurant is ran by brothers Eugene and Ronan Greaney with a team of 25, while they also operate in the beer garden of popular Galway pub, O’Connell’s, on Eyre Square.

It’s not the first time The Dough Bros’ talent has been recognised at an international level as in 2021 they made history by being named the best pizza in Europe at the 50 Top Pizza awards.

“F**k the career high, this is a life high that will be hard beat,” the brothers wrote on Twitter, when celebrating the new accolade.

As for the overall winner of the competition, that was shared between Anthony Mangieri of Una Pizza Napoletana in New York, USA and The Masanielli by Francesco Mantucci in Caserta, Italy.
