Description: Busker Brownes Bar & Kirbys Restaurant is set in the heart of Galway City’s vibrant & chique Latin Quarter. Throughout history Busker Brownes has been a meeting place for the Tribes of Galway, a soldiers barracks, a Dominican convent and a rendezvous for Galway Society. It is therefore no surprise that to this day that tradition of hospitality continues in panache.

“Excellent food and service....”
Reviewed 29 June 2014 via mobile

Food and service was 10/10 could not fault it.. but downstairs toilets could do with a clean badly dirty grout on walls, all it would take is 5 minutes and a bit of elbow grease.

“Held a Sports and Social Event”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

We held a Snail Racing event here on Friday Night 20/06/14 on the top floor. It was a great night had by all who attended. The staff were very helpful to us, the bar staff were great and the food was excellent. Thank you to all the staff in Buskers for making our night very enjoyable and to Joanna for organising the Venue for us. We will certainly be back again.

“Take a walk, half block off the Main Street”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

A very nice restaurant just a half block off the Main Street, We enjoyed a terrific meal and extraordinary service by April! There was a very nice lounge with full bar and many were enjoying the televised soccer match. We found a quiet corner and had an excellent meal. My salmon was perfect. A slightly more mature crowd than those spilling out on Eyre square but still good Craic
