Description: A destination in its own right, The Pins is loved by locals and overnight guests alike. In addition to an incredible food menu there is an equally incredible selection of cocktails,beers and wines. The Pins is a great place to enjoy good coffees,breads 'just out of the oven' from the on-site bakery and tantalising local produce infused with flavours from around the world. Catch a Traditional Irish Music session and see Galway's finest Jazz acts. Open from 8am for breakfast, serving great local food all day, everyday and Night. Acclaimed for its use of local ingredients and noted as making the 'Best Pizza outside of Napoli', The Pins has one gourmet rosette for culinary excellence.

“Excellent sea-trout.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

A very busy restaurant with no reservations. Used to be called Twelve Pins,now just the Pins.
I didn't have a starter,too big a lunch. My main course was lovely piece of sea-trout with plenty of vegetables. I don't sea-trout on menu's as often these days so that was a real treat. Decent wine and Guinness of course.

“good quality food, livelt atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

we went with friends on a lively crowded friday night. The choice of food was good and we sampled between us fish and meat dishes. We were impressed with the freshness and quality of our food. The service was efficient and we came away having enjoyed ourselves, though the noise levels sometime made it difficult to talk across our table of five.

“Great pizzas! Vegetarian friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

The pizzas were very good. They use animal rennet free cheese, so this is good for vegetarians. The pizzas are wood fired. The area is nice & close to Galway city center by car.
