Description: Mc Donagh's have been tantalising the taste buds of both Visitor and Local for four generations. The Family knowledge of Fish and dedication to their customers has earned them the reputation of being one of Ireland's best Seafood's Houses. Mc Donagh's is divided into two sections: In the Seafood Restaurant you will find a great variety of fish dishes on our menu. From native Clarenbridge Oysters, Salmon, Crab, Scallops,Prawns, Hake, Lemon Sole, Plaice, Haddock, Wild Mussels and Ray. Smoked Salmon from Connemara and whatever else the Fisherman can get his hands on. A new addition to our menu is Irish Rib Eye Steak from Mc Geough's Butchers Oughterard Co. Galway. In our Fish & Chips Bar the fish is cooked to order, and you are guaranteed the freshest of Chips, as our potatoes are peeled and cut on the premises. Our Fish & Chips can be eaten on the premises or taken away, we also have outside seating during the summer months.

Four of us stopped at McDonagh’s for lunch during our recent visit to Galway.

We were seated immediately and service was very good. We each ordered different menu items and were all happy with our meals.
We did not consume any adult beverages during our visit, but that choice was available.

A very pleasant and reasonably priced venue for lunch in Galway.

As we had not made a reservation there was a good half hour wait for a table so we decided to eat from the bar i.e. go up to the service counter and order. We all had the famous fish and chips which were very good although none of us could manage to eat all the chips (which is a first for me).
We sat at a long table and chatted to a local who visited there regularly.
Fast professional service and good value for money
Recommend it.

We had multiple orders of fish & chips, fried chicken, oysters, along with the deep fried codfish. The chowder was also very good. The prices were reasonable.

Went there twice during a 7-day visit in Galway. Food was delicious! Staff was accommodating of our needs as wheelchair user. They made the seating area accessible for us. Unfortunately the toilet was not fully accessible for power chair users. But we manage to use it by closing the first door entering to the individual restroom.
