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... :)

Have been there many times and it was always a pleasure. The atmosphere is typical for a pub and the food is delicious.

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

Went here for dinner before the Trad on the Prom show, so ended up being pressed for time but the staff seated us, got us cocktails and served an excellent meal in half an hour. We ended up having time to spare and had an excellent seafood meal.

Myself, my wife & daughter came here for Sunday lunch/dinner last week. I felt the food was Very Average at Best. No sooner did we place our order for our starters and they were out within 2 minutes (this always worries me about a restaurant when food comes out too quick!) again when our starters were finished the main courses...
