This place was great! Even though it was crammed, it was full of life and good points of Guinness. The walls are covered in photographs, news clippings, and much more; it's cool to look around and see history in the making and hear the stories that go with them. They have trad music at night and the service was fantastic.... More

When I said to my partner "let's go to Ireland for New Year, I'd like to spend it in a little pub with some live jolly music like in all Irish films I've ever seen" I didn't expect to find everything I wanted in the first pub I walked in to, but I did. Tig Coili was perfect. Crammed jolly... More

This is the Sister Pub to The Killarney in Ludlow Vermont. We found Tig Colli after a long search through Ireland and loved it. We will be back.

This was one of our best memories from our entire trip to Ireland. As soon as we walked in we had a bunch of new Irish friends. The owner's family is fun to chat with and they're there every night. The locals are a hoot. The live music was the best - real traditional Irish music that drifted outside and... More

Get here early to hold your spot. The trad sessions attract locals and tourists alike.No food, just booze and music. And great conversation.

Part of the unbelievable Irish hospitality I experienced while in Ireland was an evening at this pub with someone who grew up Galway. It's his favorite spot to hang out in and quickly became mine as well. The music and vibe of the pub was fun and authentic. Definitely worth a visit, with the time to really soak in what... More

Imagine a movie set featuring a small Irish pub playing traditional music, packed with friendly people, good beer and conversations flowing-- this is it! Spent 4 nights in Galway and made my way to this Pub every night for their late traditional music sessions. Galway has a great music scene and each night I went to other pubs but I... More
