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. Winner of 'the Best Gastro Pub in Ireland' and 'The Best Casual Dining in Ireland'.

“Good honest food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012

A menu which has so many beautiful options that we ended up having 3 starters between 2 people because we simply couldn't choose! Service, like that in the rest of the hotel, was excellent!

“Best most reliable place to eat for families in Galway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012

Have eaten here hundreds of times, at all hours day and night. The food is always good. The menu should be varied a little more, but it is creative and reasonably good value. If you are out for the day in South Connemara and want to stop off for food on the way out or back, you won't do better than this. Although we live nearby, we have had friends and family staying in the hotel and the rooms are terrific.
