Good Traditional music sessions daily at 6:30 and 9:30pm. Friendly staff and a mixed crowd between tourists and Irish of all ages - happy and chatting.

We have started our tour through Shop Str from it. Fast and friendly service, proper Guinness, good music, but rather no food.

This little bar has "sessions" most nights with local musicians that are great. Good selection of drinks and excellent service. Lots of tourists but maybe that's to be expected.

Without fail, every time I am in Galway, I make sure I don't leave without at least one pint of Guinness out of Tigh's.

Another recommendation from our friends back home. Glad we popped in to see the live Irish Music. It was very busy but the Guinness is good and it's worth going to see the musicians.

Tigh Coili is one of Galway's traditional old style pubs. Excellent music. Always a great atmosphere and a wonderful pint of Guinness.

Great pub to relax in after walking around touring all day. We found a cozy spot in the back and had a pint or two. The bartender was teasing the husband and I saying it was "our little romantic spot" and offered to dim the lights, lol!
