We had a great time here drinking Guinness and listening to a live band play. The atmosphere feels quintessentially Irish if you are trying to get an authentic experience.

Great spot for night out in galway with great food and music love going to see my favourite bands there. Only problem with the place are the bouncers who are highly rude and very intimidating especially the one with the Dublin accent.

I actually loved this place. The building was really quirky with lots of nooks and cranny's! We just went for drinks and to listen to a really brilliant live band. Drinks reasonably priced.

Traditional Irish pub on varying levels. Food was okay but not brilliant. Decent range of beers including locals.

The atmosphere here is great with traditional live Irish music Food is ok for a busy city centre pub and the live music made our night so we went twice during our visit
