Great building, an old church, or at least has many church architectural details. Service was good an so was the food. Traditional Irish options. Looks like a fun spot for music later in the evening.

Stopped here to meet friends, good lunch with decent portion size. Great for students as fills you up. More a bar than a restaurant and very limited children’s menu. Would say more a venue for groups of adults than a family but a nice spot...More

Visited Quays Bar over ST. Pat's weekend, a night club style atmosphere very busy as you can imagine on this weekend in Galway. Good music, long breaks in between sets made us decide to move along! On a down note a few local "blisters" decided...More

Disgusted by the way a girl working there on the night of the 20th of March (about 5foot, black hair, half down half up in a bun) treated customers, it was appalling. I understand things can get hectic in a bar but seriously to what...More
