We were there Wednesday, Nov 26 to celebrate our daughter's graduation from NUIG. Our reservation was for 7, but we got there 30 minutes earlier and were told to have a drink at the bar while they prepared our table. In less than 10 minutes they ahd the table ready. We had the hake entree - which was extremely fresh... More

Walked into this cozy restaurant on a quiet weeknight. The fire was blazing, and the staff was very welcoming. We found out it was restaurant week in Galway, and we were very fortunate! The chef surprised us with an appetizer of pigeon breast, wonderfully done. There were three of us, and the hit of the night was the goat cheese... More

We went to the malt house on a busy sat evening. We had originally booked for 9pm but rang to change to 8.30. When we arrived there was no record of our change of time so we had to wait. It was only a short wait and we didn't mind. We were offered a drink on the house for the... More

On a relatively quite and deserted night in November, the Malt House was nearly full when we arrived. Testament I hoped to the quality of the food and thus it proved! The restaurant was well staffed, so we were never waiting long for service throughout the night, despite the large crowd. I chose a starter of scallops and pork belly... More

In Galway for a few days with my wife and daughter when we stumbled across this wonderful restaurant almost by accident. Decided to pop in for a quick starter and ended up staying for a 3 course meal, so good was the food! Will definitely be coming back here again. The staff were very attentive to our little girl as...

This restaurant is a bit hidden away from the busy Shop Street in the center of Galway, which made it an even bigger discovery ! Delicious food, very friendly and hard working staff and cosy venue ! Limited menu but only local en fresh produced food. Would definitely go back, highly recommended !

Had been in here in the past for lunch on numerous occasions and always liked it. In fact I recently purchased a voucher for the Malthouse as a gift for someone - I'm slightly embarrassed now to ask how they fared! I decided to take my girlfriend out here two weeks ago for a mid week treat as we'd been... More

We had dinner at The Malt House and it was not particurarly busy the same evening. Food was not as good as other occasions. We had to ask for a basket of bread with our starters and for the prices that are charged bread should be automatically served. We all commented on the staff standing around chatting which does not... More

Unexpectedly found myself sans-children on Valentines night (a night I hate dining out on) but ended up meeting my wife for an impromptu dinner. Called the Malt House with only an hours notice and they were nothing but accommodating. Staff were their usual excellent selves (though I believe their has been some turnover recently) Menu was very good (considering the... More

Our rainy, cold visit to Galway was brightened by a wonderful dinner at The Malt House. A little difficult to find in an alley off High Street but worth the search. Inventive food and attentive service and food. A good value. Lively ambience and delightful wait staff.
