When on a Sunday night so was able to get a seat for the 3 of us. Great place to have a glass of wine or beer. Meet people from all over but a favorite of locals.

Called in after 10:30, following the Snow Patrol concert at nearby Leisureland. The place was jammed - everyone enjoying the live music. An excellent pub.

Interesting decor- loads of antiques. A nice band was playing with a bass, they were very good. We were lucky to get a seat in the back although wish we were closer to the band.

This is my second "five stars" review so far and I couldn't be happier to make it for this pub. As soon as we came inside, we felt the very Irish spirit. Everywhere inside this pub was accurately chosen, there were loads of beers and...More

I'm a Dub and hadn't been to Galway in years, unfortunately. I went on a trip to see the Galway v Dublin Game with a group of lads. The match was brutal and we were all mad for pints. I'm delighted to say that O'Connors...More
