When speaking to the Manager I was straight away informed that he wanted the table for 2.30 I immediately felt under pressure. They weren't the friendliest We found we were waiting over 15mins before anyone came near us to... read more

We walked past Gallaghers on our way to Mulligans and were attracted by the choices on the early bird menu. It is a pleasant room, good service and excellent value for money. The hake was excellent with lovely hot mash. Other choices at our table were all liked. Overall we were pleased with the place and would return--hopefully with no... More

I'll try to balance this review the best I can! We travelled to Dublin as a group of 17 on a hen party, prior to travelling we spent many hours trawling the net to find a central restaurant that served both a normal menu and afternoon tea. This seemed to pretty much be the only one, so we booked. They... More

I've been going to Gallaher's for a few years and have yet to be disappointed. I use it most often for the early bird menu or for something different at the weekend (usually the afternoon tea), but we've also used it as a venue for big birthday parties and other group meals too, and the staff have always been a...

Arrived at restaurant on a Saturday evening unbooked. Got a table no problem but was a little strange to be sat next to the kitchen where the door was left open for all to see, not that there was anything of concern to see, but just seemed a bit strange. Also strange was it was about 15 minutes before anyone... More

I went to Gallagers Bistro with my best friend before a girls night out and it was a perfect way to start the night. The food was amazing, we both had something different, I had the Chicken Supreme followed by the Chocolate orange brownie, my friend had the Risotto followed by the Cheese board, each dish was fantastic.

We chose the bruschetta to start with. Turned out to be an excellent choice. For my main course I went for the steak, another excellent choice. So many restaurants fail to cook your steak the way you requested. Not on this occasion. It was cooked to perfection. My dining companion opted for the chicken supreme, which hit the spot. Staff...
