“Great Steaks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

We decided to splurge one evening, and splurge we did. This is definitely not the cheapest place in Galway (to say the least), but they know what they're doing. The food is fantastic. The steaks are of very high standard, the starter was great, and the dessert was a real treat. Again, expect to pay a good sum of money, but this is a great place to go for a special evening. Very helpful staff, and great ambiance.

“Best Restaurant in Galway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Restaurant is really nicely decorated and relaxing, i loved the low couches and tables, gave the place a nice relaxing feel and i really enjoyed sitting at them.
The staff were really friendly and accommodating. We were never waiting on a drink or service there was always someone close.
The food was amazing the best food i have had in a while, i had duck spring rolls for starters and the sauce that came with them was delish. For main i had chicken Supreme, the chicken wasn't dry or too greasy it was just perfect, the sauce was nice and creamy as was the mash. For dessert i had mint and strawberry cheesecake which sounds a bit weird but it was really nice , freshly made too.

We god a complimentary drink at the end of our meal and the meal was really good value for money . Would definitely go back again and again and im sure it wouldn't disappoint.

“GallagherGalway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

A group of 15 of us went to Kirbys recently for a staff night out. We have previously held our staff nights there and we have always been very satisfied. We were not disappointed again this time. There is always a lovely atmosphere in this restaurant; staff are always extremely friendly and helpful, they make you really feel welcome and despite the fact that it was very busy on the night, the service was excellent. All tried various starters, mains and desserts and we were all very pleased with our choices. The quality and presentation of the food was excellent and very reasonably priced. We look forward to a return visit.

Dear Newmanlongford,
