Busy and bustling with activity, music and drink on a Monday night. Good atmosphere.

“Brilliant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2012

The sessions start here at 7:30pm and you'd be wise to arrive early. It's a great pub, an exceptional find and great fun. When we went it turns out all the musicians were visiting from America although one couple were back in Galway from their new home in Boston. The couple apparently own a pub named the Burren. It's a great pub in a great town. I truly cannot recommend this place more highly. Check out their website too. It's really fun. http://www.tigcoili.com/

“Fun place for a pint”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2012

Good atmosphere and great service. The traditional irish music makes the place a vibrant place for a pint.

One tip: When you have to use the toilet when the place is busy at night (like it was when we where there), and you're seated in the back of the pub. Instead of fighting the crowd and making your way to the front of the pub where the bathrooms are. It's easier to exit out the back of the pub, walk around to the front, and re-enter the front of the pub to get to the tiolets. I did this all night...it was much faster and easier.
