Trad music sessions in this lovely tiny pub is the great attraction. It's located right in the heart of the city.There's some excellent local draught and the service is very good. Need some food to go with your beer? Try their burguers. We loved the experience.

Loved the music. Loved the people. Never been in a bar before where I felt so welcome, and by perfect strangers. My wife and I were only able to hange put for a couple of hours, but we loved every minuted and will never forget our visit.

This is a great spot. The music was excellent and the atmosphere too. There was a good mix of locals and tourists which is always a good sign. Great place to stop in for a pint or two, especially if there is live music. I would highly recommend a stop here.

Fun pub with great music and good criac! Went in on a Saturday night and the place was busy. People were very friendly. I would definitely stop in again!

Tig Coili does not serve food but they have great traditional Irish music and tap beer. Every night there are two sets of music - around 5:30-6:00 and again around 9:00. We went to other places, but ended up coming back here because both the music and the atmosphere were better. The place gets packed, so get there early and... More

The second best place for trad music in Galway, after Cranes. Tig Coili is on the main drag but the music is genuine and the staff very friendly.

The music sessions here at 6 are legendary. From Dobs to Macken the place is a haven of great conversation and the craic.

I was visiting Galway for 4 days with my parents and inlaws and we had gone for a meal next door to Tig Coli which had set the standard for excellent service despite the fact that the Saturday night crowds had spilled onto the street. We came to the bar for a post dinner drink and waited to be served... More

This place is what Galway is all about! We sat outside and were immediately welcomed by the folks sitting out there. Many of them were locals. We felt like we were visiting family. We had SO much fun and made new friends. The people in Galway are amazing! We loved this place!

The place was packed, but the live traditional irish music played by four musicians made it worthwhile. It's in the center of all the action, so there are a lot of places to choose from, but if you're here and you hear music, you have to stop in. The staff was friendly and the place is nice, but it's really... More
