Lynch's had been a favorite while we were living in Ireland. For many years it was my "local" place to get a meal (as simple as tea and homemade scones or a full on dinner) in a most relaxed atmosphere. It has been renovated and updated in the 3 years I've been away and there is table service now but... More

Stopped by for coffee and dessert and discovered this gem. Strawberries and cream was never surpassed the rest of our trip. So glad we decided to climb the stairs. Wished I got the fruit cake available to take out.

Had lunch in Lynch's café last week. Very good food, lovely and fresh with excellent service. Lovely outdoor place at the back of restaurant.....plenty of good clean fresh air. Very small at the front and hadn't spotted it beforehand. Very reasonable. We will definitely make a return visit.

I recently had lunch in lynches with some friends I hadn't seen in years. Though I live in Galway, I had never dined here before. But I definitely will again! The food was absolutely delicious (I'd definitely suggest the strawberry gateaux for dessert) and though one of our party is a coeliac, she felt well catered for and enjoyed the... More

Great value for money, lovely fresh salads and a choice of indoor or outdoor seating. Staff are very pleasant and the service is good. Have been back... More

My daughter and I stumbled across this place by accident. She was starving and we saw a sign that mentioned soups and we climbed upstairs. We both ended up getting the meat quiche which had ham and chicken in it, and it was very good. It was on the cheaper side, which is good when every time you make a... More
