“Great Night.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 December 2013

Saw this show last night (7th Dec,) at the Pillo Hotel in Galway. We really had a great night.
While we enjoyed a very nice buffet dinner a cast of 6 acted out a very funny murder mystery.
It was a really good show with plenty of audience participation. The food was also very good.
If you fancy something different for a night out this is a really good idea .

“Something different!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2013

Attended the event on Halloween with a group to celebrate 2 friends' birthdays. Bruce (the organiser) was great in making it a special night. Given the structure of the evening the menu was understandably limited, but in fairness we weren't there for the food choice! That said, the food WAS lovely and there was plenty of it, and a special birthday dessert made it all the better! The format of the evening worked really well, with entertaining actors and plot, spaced out nicely to last the night and allow for the meal, and there was nicely arranged audience participation. We will be going again, and would recommend to anyone looking for something different when heading out in Galway

“A nice alternative to a quiet evening in the pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2013

The food provided by the hotel was included in the price and was quite good. The show/sketch was clever and witty and it was fun to be a part of the entertainment with the ooh's and aah's.
There was a bit of chit chat with people around the table and some revolved around the clues of who did it.
The only down side is if you didn't book at same time as your friends you'd end up at a different table.

“Nice food and good fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2013

My fiance and I attended murder on the menu in November, just around halloween time so it was the perfect time to go! We were greeted with a wine reception and the hotel staff kindly took our coats when we arrived.

The tables were nicely decorated. It almost looked like a wedding reception!

The show was funny and there was some audience interaction which was good!

The food was really nice and the waiting staff were very attentive, making sure that we enjoyed our meal.

All in all it was a good night out!

My workplace were thinking of booking this for our christmas party so I will definitely be recommending it to them!

“An evening well spent!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2013

A group of us attended Murder on the Menu during the Galway Arts/Fringe Festivals and despite all the other attractions going on at the time (and the great weather!) it was definitely the highlight of the of the season! The show was well put together and had the audience laughing throughout! Add to that the venue (The Harbour Hotel) with great staff and absolutely delicious food and the result was an evening not to be missed!!

If I had to find a flaw and I'm not sure it would count as a 'fault' as such, but I would suggest maybe going in Autumn-Spring as the dark evenings may add more to the ambiance!

That aside if you get the chance you should definitely give this a go, you will have a fun filled night and it makes a great change from your run of the mill night on the town! And for those that way inclined you will be out on time to still make a late bar or club!
