Owner description: O’Connell’s bar is located in the heart of Galway city in Eyre Square. A traditional Irish bar which was originally a grocery store and small bar, and it still has most of its original features and decor. O' Connells is one of Galway's oldest bars and is famous for its cosy atmosphere and amazing pint of Guinness. O' Connells have a large selection of whiskeys, gins and craft beers. They also have a large heated beer garden with outdoor bars and live entertainment every weekend.

We sought out this place because we saw it in Ed Sheran's music video Galway Girl. It turned out to be a delightful day to sit in the beer garden and enjoy a pint where we met some lovely sisters from Cork on holiday. The beer was good; the setting was great!

Absolutely incredible place! Lovely little bar at the front with an amazing choice of Whiskey and spirits. If you go here, you MUST go outside and see the incredible beer garden!

We went into O’Connell’s in the afternoon because we liked the name and went back again after dinner because we enjoyed it so much couldn’t leave without making another visit.

Great, hospitable service provided by knowledgeable staff and a great variety of beers on tap and whiskey meant we were spoiled and spoilt for choice.

Great beer; good, quick service; fabulous quirky beer garden (very Diagon Alley); and a Dough Bros Thurs- Sunday (I believe?!) - a must visit if in Galway. We loved it.
