We had a blast at the bar. It does get crowded at night, however, there are a few levels and bars open to get a drink, listen to music, and enjoy the atmosphere. We had a blast. A good place for drinks at night with friends!

This is a great little pub ... we had the oysters and seafood chowder ... the food is good -- the chowder is a GREAT choice -- and priced well. To sit in there is to be surrounded by church windows and church furniture salvaged from elsewhere. I love the atmosphere ... an ATM is tucked around a corner that... More

Visited the Quay about a week n a half ago. The service was friendly and the bar it self was typical. Massive portion plate but the taste was just ok.

Quay st in Galway has loads of lovely eateries, this is not one. In a hurry for dinner on a busy Saturday evening this was the only one that seemed to have a few seats available at around 7pm. I ordered traditional "Fish and Chips" and certainly the service was speedy and friendly. The meal that arrived certainly failed to... More

Couldn't believe the prices for a start, €18.95 for the "Irish Stew". My fiance got the fish and chips, my mother the roast. Veg tasted funny, very musty while the fish had the texture of chicken even though they claimed it was fresh. Layout and menu's reminded me of a cafeteria though with Hilton prices. In all fairness the serving... More

Called in here Friday night just to get a glimpse of the place. Having watched Glór Tire on TG4 since it started we thought it would be nice to see where it all happens. The door man was so nice and he introduced us to Mr Carroll who gave us a tour of the premises. He was very busy but... More

I have no idea how the food rates but the inside of this bar is gorgeous. Definitely stop inside for a pint of Guinness and take a look at the beautiful pub.

The two meals for €19 is great value for money. Nice food and the meals are large. The service was excellent and very efficient.
