Fun place to unwind after a long drive

You could tell this is a favorite among the locals. We enjoyed listening to a folk band while sipping our drinks. Definitely a fun atmosphere.

We made our most recent trip to Ocean Shores just because we had a craving for Galway Bay. As always the food was wonderful, the staff friendly and the evening was a success.

We were in a private room at the start of the evening. We had pizza and chicken wings. The hot ones were too hot for me (but I'm wimpy about the hot stuff). The food and drinks were great. We went into the game room for a bit. It was a Saturday night and pretty slow so we kind of... More

After a miserable experience here two years ago, I decided to try it again this trip. Wasn't too crowded at 5:30pm. We went inside and I asked for two for dinner. I was told by the gentleman it would be $30 to enter. WHAT $30 just to get a table to eat?? He said it was a cover charge for... More

Our grown daughter always insist we eat here when we take our little trips to Ocean Shores. My husband and I always have a meal here even when she's not with us! Great atmosphere, great food and fantastic bar. We were lucky enough to be visiting one time when they had a live Irish band. It has the feeling of... More

The Galway Bay is a sweet little Irish pub/restaurant. The decor is very comfortable with Irish/Gaelic decor throughout. The oak, and brass gives the place a warm, historical, comfortable feel. The menu has all of the Irish clasics, including bangers and mash, shepherd's pie, corned beef and cabbage, Dublin Coddle, Irish Colcannon, Lamb stew and the list goes on. In... More

The corned beef slider was the best slider my husband has ever had; it was spot-on perfect served with homemade soda bread and horseradish sauce. We ate in the bar, by the fireplace, which was perfect after a cold walk on the beach. Our waitress was attentive and knowledgable about the many beers and whiskies on the menu. They have... More

This is an Irish Pub with real irish fare. The food was great and the staff were great. The music was also great. They had "The Irishman" singing and he was great involving the audience in most of his songs. Very funny.
