If you are looking for a pub which offer traditional Irish Music and great pints of guinness and craic, this is definitely the place to be. However in saying that the place can get quite crowded but if you are like me and dont mind that you will love this place. Will definitely be back when visiting Galway again.

I wasn't exactly drinking 7ups all day but I certainly didn't see the need for it. I actually thought he was messing. I told him "you... More

Went here with business associates for a pint a Wednesday evening. The place was full and the Guinness flowed. Nice small genuine Irish pub with live Irish music like it should be. Friendly staff and reasonable prices. Would definitely go back if I'm in town again.

Hands down best pub in Galway. The bar staff are the nicest, the drinks are the coldest, the music is the best! If you don't go you're missing out!

Possibly one of the best evenings I've ever had. My first experience of a proper Irish music night. Can't wait to come back.

Taaffes never lets you down where there is live music in the back! Most nights have live music, usually some Irish pub songs, but not the cheesy stuff. It's really music--loud and hectic. The pints are cold and well-priced. If you are out in Galway, you must stop off in Taaffes.
