O'Connor's Pub in Salthill is one of the friendliest in Galway! As a solo traveler I was always made to feel welcome and their bands totally rock! The interior has cool and eclectic decor as well. It's not to be missed if you're in Galway!

We spent 4 hours in this pub mainly because of the brilliant music and the character of the place. We were entertained, firstly, by a family (father and 3 young sons) and then an older band. Lot of traditional Irish music and sing-a-long songs.
