Although I had a rather interesting table right near the door, I'm really glad I stopped here for dinner and a drink on St. Patrick's Day. I was seated right away and ordered the fried mushrooms and the Irish Stew. Originally, I wanted the Guinness...More

No idea on the Resturant but that Bar is a good time. Both bartenders were very friendly, willing to engage, knew a lot about their local Gins, and served great drinks. Planned to only stop in for a pint, stayed for two and a G&T....More

Had lunch here recently. The upside is it was a cold, wet day and I got a seat by the turf fire, plus the service was polite and friendly. The downside was the food, very average and I wouldn't recommend.

We were very happy we ended up at The Quay for dinner on our first night in Galway. It is a very lively place with fantastic live music! The bar upstairs is quite crowded but you'll be able to grab a Guinness pretty quickly and...More

The Quays is such an iconic Galway pub renown for great music and atmosphere but would not eat there again. Had chicken curry and rice yesterday and it was awful, don't want to get descriptive than that, totally disappointed.
