With over twenty craft draught beers always available, this is one of the best bars I've visited. Forget Guinness, here you will find a selection of other Irish beers: Stouts, Porters, IPA and other local varieties.

The fantastic beer at the Salt House Bar was only outdone by the great staff that served it. I frequented this place during my 3-day stay in Galway and I consistently recommend this to friends who intend to travel there.
