visitied on a Sunday night and we were blown away by the fantastic Jazz Music - totally unexpected. Always a great atmosphere, which on this occasion was enhanced by the music

Cozy little pub in Galway center. I could sit in one of the cozy snugs all day and watch the day go by. We had a nice lunch which was made by the restaurant upstairs. It was a quiet weekday afternoon but we had good service and a good Guinness pour. Would definitely go back next time through town.

Naughton's is a fabulous traditional pub, nooks and crannies everywhere and covered in posters from festivals over many years. We went for lunch on a cold November day just before leaving Galway and while Naughton's has atmosphere in spades the food was a disappointment. The menu is very short with soup and chowder, a couple of main courses and a... More

On my way home from my Sunday trip to the Aran Island I stop randomly for having a Whisky. After a while and a Guinness I was surrounded by a lot of friendly people, the band began to play and I finally got home a bit later as planned. To put it in a nutshell, a great venue to have... More

a traditional Irish pub sit outside watch the world go bye. Great choice of whiskies available catch some traditional music or just take in the atmosphere

I'd recommend anyone visiting Galway to pop in here for a drink. There is lots of outside seating but I preferred inside as there were lots of different cosy areas to sit and lots of lovely art on the walls.

I had a glass of ale at one of the outside tables because it was such a nice day. The pub itself is quaint, historic, and has a great ambience. Next time I'll go for the music at night.

Up there with the best pubs in Ireland. Absolutely gorgeous pint of Guinness in a quaint 'old man's' pub. Great characters and craic throughout
