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.

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

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

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.
