Loved the Galleon! Traditional Irish food with a long history of serving locals and tourists alike. Good service and nice hot fish and chips, shepherd's pie, and the usual accompaniments, including a great pint of Guinness (natch). Very kid friendly - try the coloring contest! We will return to the Galleon someday!

We got here a bit late the night we called in. Didn't matter though as we were treated as if we were first in and we certainly weren't being rushed out. Lovely food here, great social staff and we enjoyed out time here.

I was in Salthill visiting a friend from Galway I had a dog in tow, she a young child. We only got two coffees but The Galleon has a nice outdoor area with an awning and so we choose it as a good place to sit in from the rain with the dog. The service was excellent. A waitress brought... More

Standard Irish meal. They bang out decent food at decent prices. Restaurant is clean and right in the middle of Salthill village. Walk off your meal on the prom afterwards. Always busy which is a good sign. Service is friendly and efficient. Not fine dining, but you will be getting a proper glimpse of Irish 'mammy' food.

This is a handy spot if your looking for honest food at a good price and fast too, not a dining out experience but grand for a bite!

One of my earliest memories is going to the Galleon with my mum and dad as a big treat during the summer holidays. Now that was a few years ago and I now have a family of my own I still enjoy taking my daughter there as a treat. Ok so the food has changed and the people have changed... More
