The home of traditional Irish Music sessions in Galway city!..

Our traditional cosy Irish bar is loved by both our guests and our locals. We offer a large selection of Gins, Whiskey, Wines and Beer you will be sure to find something you love on our drinks menu.

On Thursdays we have our traditional music session with the wonderful OMGA. It has been mentioned as one of the ten thing to do while in Galway. On Fridays and Saturdays we have live music and it will be sure to keep you singing all night long.

Our bar is home to the Manchester City supporters Club. Come on down on match day if you are a man city fan to watch the match, shout for city and hopefully celebrate a win.

We are also a prime location to watch all things GAA. We are proud supporters of Liam Mellows Club and with a number of our staff playing for the club you will be sure to find somebody to talk hurling or football with.

The service here was phenomenal and really friendly. The food was outstanding and that’s not even saying enough! My wife and I were not expecting it and left completely satisfied.

Really tasty food and top class service!

Went in with my girlfriend yesterday evening. We ordered two starters, two mains , a dessert to share and a bottle of Merlot. Everything was absolutely perfect, Delicious and divine food, combined with really lovely wine, was worth to try it for the first time. Really professional staff member from Suffolk was looking after us. Sadly we haven’t asked for his name! We might have a chance when we go in the next time, Because definitely we are coming back. Would recommend to friends or family.

“Excellent food, great service”

We had a lovely evening here and were very well looked after by Zeljko, who was happy to chat to us and make recommendations for what to eat.

The food was excellent, not as heavy as I had feared it might be, and of very high quality. We were here because there was an offer for hotel guests, but we will return tomorrow to try some of the other dishes on the menu too…”
