“DREAM PUB”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

I can't think of Galway without the Roisin. It's a must on travellers milestones of a trip. I just think it's the place to be. I can't wait to be there again.

“Excellent Venue”
Reviewed 13 April 2014 via mobile

Stumbled on the Roisin Dubh and was intrigued by what was behind the heavy black curtain. We ended up paying a small price to see John Spillane, which was worth every penny! A real experience, and very different. Lovely ambience with table lights and a small stage.
If you want an experience while in Galway this place is a must...

“Live Music”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

Heard about this place from a friend, went in on a Sunday night, they had live music about to start. Headed upstairs and they had an open mic where locals and travelers got on to play a song or sing a tune. It was a great atmosphere and a great experience. Most of the people there knew each other and you could tell there were a lot of locals. I felt lucky to be able to be apart of the event and enjoy a pint while checking out the local talent. Real cool night, highly recommend if you can find out when the live music is playing.

“Great Venue”
Reviewed 29 October 2013

ME, my boyfriend and another couple went here for a comedy gig 'Whose Line is it Anyway?'. The atmosphere is great in this pub, a very authentic traditional Irish pub. A great location for any gig. Reasonably priced for drinks too. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Galway.
