Great Irish Bar! Went on a Sunday night with a group of mates from Australia and we had fun dancing, laughing and drinking to live music. Everyone enjoyed themselves. Bar staff were nice and just let us enjoy ourselves. Top craic!

This was a welcoming place to sit down with a pint of Guinness. We also had a pint of Galway H Irish pale ale. Very citrusy and refreshing. Made to feel very welcomed sitting at the bar. Great live musical performance by a singer and accompanying guitar player to keep the place alive. Didn't have any of the food, therefore, couldn't rate it.

Went there for an afternoon drink with friends. Great service, great staff and such a beautiful bar with rich history! Be sure to look around for some interesting artifacts.

Wonderful atmosphere since the building itself is very old and it's part of the ancient Galway city walls.Breakfast option was very good, only thing I asked for Poached eggs but they served me scrumbled ones. I didn't want to "bother" and ask to replace the item.. so I ate that without problems. Beers and Irish coffee was also good!
