This was my first pub experience in Ireland and it was among the best. Small, intimate, dark but cheery. I had a few Q's about the Irish whiskey which were gladly answer and raised quite the conversation among the regulars :) It was too early for the trad music so I will just have to return...

Asked some local family members to take me out for the best pint of Guinness in town. Without hesitation we went straight to Tig Coili. Well, they did not disappoint. Great pint and great atmosphere! If you are a looking for the best pint in Galwayy, look no further.

We went to Dublin for St Patricks Day for a number of years but were disappointed that on that special day pubs played pop music! Then we went to Galway and what a good decision! Tig Coili has it all, lots of friendly people enjoying lots of Guinness and listening to lots of real traditional music! It will definitely be... More

Tig coili's makes for a great night out. No food, just good traditional music, drink and conversation. Be sure to get there early because everynight is busy at Tig Coili's. For earlybirds, there is an early trad session. Pull up a stool, savour a pintand enjoy good craic.

I lived in Galway for four years, and I always send/bring people who are looking for a traditional Irish pub to Tig Choili. Normally traditional Irish bands playing and a great atmosphere. Worth a visit in the centre of Galway

I came to this pub on a Sunday night expecting it to be quiet, but as the evening progressed it became busier and livelier. Then the musicians arrived and things really got going. I have not seen such a talented group play so naturally together and the atmosphere, jigs and reels were intoxicating. I long for the day I can... More

I spent a night in Galway and ventured into this delightful little pub for a glass of Guinness and some trad music on a Sunday night. The place was packed, beer was flowing, music too. I ended up finding the last spot in a snug for one, or maybe two, towards the back of the bar. It was fun being... More
