Was looking for simple traditional food and this place hit the spot. Roast chicken, stuffing, boiled spuds and veg. All too often in restaurants now the emphasis seems to be make it as rich as possible, that's fine if you fancy that but simple cooking is often much nicer.

Just back from another meal in the Galleon - we've been there a few times, and the food seems to get better & better. Lovely burgers (steak for him, veggie for me)- really hit the spot, & there are always good specials on the wine of the week. And best of all, the staff are just so lovely. That alone... More

We have been visiting this restaurant for many years with our family, on any special occasion. e.g. birthday confirmation x4. graduations and feel good days. Now as our family are growing up we look forward to continuing our visits to this beautiful homely spot.

I had often walked past The Galleon on my way to another restaurant and there was always a queue. One day there was a voucher in the Galway Advertiser offering a special meal deal.

Homely, traditional, well cooked food! I like this restaurant because I know what to expect, it is not going to blow away your taste buds but you will be eating homely, well cooked Irish food. The service is very good and love their chocolate dessert.

Garlic bread starter needed to be sent back as it wasn't fully defrosted therefore wasn't fresh!. Soup was nice but Nothing special. Shepherds pie was very nice. My partner had fish... More
