My very favorite of anywhere. Food was fantastic and the staff was exceptional. We tried to make a 7pm reservation but they were only accepted at 8 pm or later. It was a very long evening but the Irish typically eat later than Americans. Great atmosphere.

I rarely post a bad review, but I wanted to warn you. Horrible, Horrible, Horrible. The man that greeted us at the door was very nice. The server was rude, rude, rude. We sat at the table for 25 minutes before the server would acknowledge our existence. We had to beg for every glass of water. We were definitely an... More

We arrived early, but as the evening progressed and the restaurant filled up, there were only the same two waitstaff working. It took 20 minutes and three arms high waves to get the check.

Yes, the food here is rather good, as it should be for the price. The serve four different fish dishes all cooked to perfection, shows a kitchen brigade with a deft touch. Gallaghers appears to be located in a still from The Quiet Man, with rough hewn wooden panelling painted black, bare floorboards and not a lot of windows. It... More

If there is a better restaurant in Bunratty then we didn't find it. We had a group meal there with 20 people and the food and ambience was great. If in Bunratty skip the pubs and go to Gallagher.

It was quite crowded so you may have to wait a bit for a table but the wait is worth it. Probably some of the best food we ate in Ireland. VERY good meals. We went back several times.

They have 1/2 dosen of traditional oysters with a glass of Guiness as a starter, which is very reasonable and tasted really good. Rest of them are very expensive as the dessert cost 7 Euro!!

Hi there, thanks for the review. I'm delighted you enjoyed the visit to Gallagher's. Oysters are a nice starter and they go down well with the Guinness! Our desserts are €7 but this is a competitive price for what we offer. Freshly made desserts are not common is every restaurant. Thanks again for the review. Declan O'Loughlin Sales & Marketing...

Lovely venue which is located beside The Courtyard guesthouse. Great menu with plenty to choose from. Food was very tasty and the building itself is nice and trendy. There is a fish restaurant if you are looking for a good selection of fish dishes
