Stopped here for a late lunch. Other half had fish and chips which was OK but I had veggie quiche with salad and chips. The quiche was horrible it was soggy, cold and tasteless. Not a place I'd recommend

Great spot for the family. We enjoyed the pub food - traditional Irish stews, etc, and there was some very good Irish music playing while we were eating.

Visited here a few times now or our visits to Galway and always enjoyed the atmosphere and surroundings. Always had live music and dancing sometimes, very good. This time we had an evening meal and it was very reasonable well priced and good enough quality.

We stopped in here for lunch on a whim and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and service. The food was served within 10 minutes of ordering and it was piping hot. Very good Irish stew and chicken curry! The waitresses were...More
