Great spot for the family. We enjoyed the pub food - traditional Irish stews, etc, and there was some very good Irish music playing while we were eating.

Visited here a few times now or our visits to Galway and always enjoyed the atmosphere and surroundings. Always had live music and dancing sometimes, very good. This time we had an evening meal and it was very reasonable well priced and good enough quality.
