We went into this pub for lunch & was nicely surprised by the menu. Homemade burgers, which the boys in our group had. Fresh mussels for the adults in the group. Food way above average for a pub. Free wifi is advertised, though the 2 boys in the group couldn't get it. That may have been due to signal as... More

When ever I'm in Galway, I always try my best to visit Donnellys. The food is always fantastic, and always piping hot (which is lovely). The soup is gorgeous and especially the lovely home made brown bread. And the crab claws is a must... :)

A group of four of us travelled to your restaurant yesterday evening with high expectations from having previously dined there. Though the weather was mild outside we found the place to be cold and not atall cozy. We were firstly waited on by a gentleman who when asked about your early bird menu said there wasn't any! We commented that... More

We were a big group, with all sorts of different requirements, many of of us having just arrived in Galway, not all at the same time. We enjoyed brilliant food & good service! Your garden is a credit. I loved the Trio of Seafood & the bread was fab. Many thanks.

Called in for a quick lunch when I was passing through Barna The lunch menu was adequate and one of the group wanted a different dish which was on the dinner menu and this wasn't a problem will certainly call again when I'm visiting the west of Ireland

This crowded restaurant offered great seafood options, although they were not cheap. The sprawling pub/restaurant also features music two nights a week. Try not to get seated in the far back section, as it is much warmer than the other sections.

Wot a great pub! We have eaten the good food here in the past but this night we just went in for a last couple of drinks on the traditional music night on Saturday ( there's another on Thursday). GREAT atmosphere and the four musicians there that night were wonderful. Good Guinness too. Afterwards a litle walk on the pier... More
