O'Grady's on the Pier has won numerous awards and deserve every one of them! We arrived without reservations and were immediately seated at a lovely table by the window. My partner tried the risotto with smoked cod and spinach starter and loved it! My panfried chicken livers starter was "to die for" good. My seafood platter main consisted of large... More

In any restaurant on a Sunday night one can expect service and food to be slightly less than it would be than on other nights. However O'Grady's bucked the trend. The staff were very pleasant and welcoming and the food was of an excellent standard and plenty of it. The most popular fish dish of the day had one portion... More

Tired from a day sightseeing in the Burren and on the Cliffs of Moher, we drove to O'Grady 's on the Pier in nearby Barna (Bearna) instead of Galway for dinner. The restaurant sits near the waters of Galway Bay so the view is nice through the large windows. It is casual so jeans are fine. The seafood is so... More

We had a very nice meal here, but will only comment on the overcharge by the restaurant on our credit card transaction. This restaurant is one of two or three we encountered during our two weeks in Ireland that add 3.5% to your bill as an "international conversion margin". You get a credit card receipt in dollars which has been... More

This is a fail-safe, great little restaurant in Barna, Galway. The fish is always completely fresh and cooked to perfection. The location is stunning, overlooking Galway Bay. I would recommend it highly.

If you've ever dreamed of eating fresh seafood in a homely, pub type restaurant on a harbour overlooking Galway Bay then look no further . O'Grady's ticks all the boxes. The location is every travel writer's fantasy, right at the end of the pier. If you were any closer to the water you'd need a boat. The atmosphere inside is... More

My family travelled to Galway to celebrate my dad's 80th birthday and I phoned O Grady's to book a table for a party of four for dinner. I said it was my Dad's 80th birthday, big occasion etc... Even mentioned that he would have no problem climbing the stairs for an upstairs table!. The food here is stunning, no question... More

This is a great place to eat with fantastic fish and non-fish dishes. The staff are exceptional and it has a certain homeliness to it. It really is quality food at average prices. Definitely worth a visit for a treat!
