I was in the Shannon area in the beginning of January for a week on business. Gallaghers was recommended to me and I ate there twice during the week. Both times the food and the service was fantastic. I look forward to eating there again when back in the area.

The set menu is of good value with a good selection of choices. Fresh seafood with excellent chowder. A great place for a quiet dinne. The ambience is perfect for a romantic dinner. My only complaint is that the manager kept touching my shirt with his pen each time he was talking with us. I wouldn't have minded, but it... More

This was my first visit to Gallaghers in a number of years and let me start by saying the food was excellent and the service at the table could not be faulted but compared to the last time I was there the restaurant has lost something. The first negative was the pre-dinner service, we were left standing around while other... More

Had a very nice meal here. Garlic Prawns as an entree were the best I have had for a long time. Trio of fish to follow, John Dory, Halibut & Sea Bass were not bad, the potato was good but the Samphire was an interesting vegetable. good dessert to finish. would go again

We dined here because it was close to our hotel and our exhaustion and the miserable weather made it a welcome choice. The food was very good and reasonably priced. Our meal was very relaxing and the staff was great.

Four of us dined here Thanksgiving night and the food service was outstanding. The special starter of hake caught me by surprise but was lovely as was the sole both on (my friend) and off the bone (me). We will all (4) gladly return to this wonderful place where the staff are fantastic also.

Ate here with friends last night. If you like seafood, this is the place to go. Excellent menu. I had the platter of fish, served with Dauphin potatoes. Stunning dish, cooked perfectly.
