“Good music”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2013

Good beer, good fish and chips (or shepherd's pie), but most of all, good music.

This pub in the center of downtown Galway is half a block from Eire Square, and directly across the street from our hotel. So convenience is unequaled.

The sign out front says that music starts at 7:30pm. Our experience was that the timing was only approximate. One evening it was 8:00pm, the next was 9:00pm, with different groups each night. Be aware that there is a walled-off area just past the bar that has tables for diners in the early evening, but that becomes the performance stage later in the evening.

The place can be mobbed, and you may have to fight your way to the bar to pay your tab.

“Great music.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

Went there my first night in Galway to listen to some music. Right across the street from the Park House Hotel where I was staying. Outstanding 2-man band. The next night, it was raining, and I was tired from a day of sightseeing, so I went back for dinner. Stayed for the music. Excellent pub.

“Great Music”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2013

On our first night in galway we went exploring around eyre square and came upon this bar, there was music advertised so we went in for a few pints and the place was empty, we had not been in for more than half a hour when the music started and the place was soon packed out, mostly foreign travellers who like the irish music. The guinness wasnt bad and my wife had the steak sandwich and chips which she enjoyed. A good bar to go to and listen to some good musicians, if you want a seat be there before eight
