An awesome pub. Full of both locals and ex-pats, you'll have a great time and even better pint. They have an excellent selection of both local, imports, and house beers. Can't say enough good things about his place.

Excellent range of craft and international beers. Hole in the wall/ speakeasy atmosphere. Cosy. Excellent service. Tried some local tasters, would recommend this for the variety. Also have a lovely Belgian Double Westmalle on tap.

This bar has over ten taps with the local galway bay brewery as over half. They have amazing beers, with quite the variety, including East Coast US flavored IPAs. The bar has a laid back vibe with an outdoor area, where you can grab a...More
