“Terrific food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

I had a fabulous chicken and chick pea curry here one night. I loved the atmosphere and the food. Only complaints - service was a bit slow, and the naan bread I was given was rock hard in seconds (they did replace it when I complained though). This pub is on a side street in the Galway city center and I'm sure it gets overlooked by people who only stick to the main street, but it is well worth a visit!

“Great Irish food and hospitality!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

The Guinness stew was very good. Staff was very personable and helpful. We were heading to Dublin the next day and they gave great recommendations for restaurants to try and things to do.

“Great place, awesome staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013 via mobile

We had their fresh mussels in white wine sauce, and were very impressed with the quality and seasoning of the dish. The waiter was very thoughtfull and although the atmosphere lacked at bit, a band was setting up while we ate.

“A wonderful pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

We went here on the recommendation of our cab driver in Dublin and it really exceeded our expectations. Great music on Sunday afternoons in a very comfortable setting. But the food was the real surprise, very tasty for a great price. Loads of options and good-sized portions. And the wait staff could not be nicer. So accommodating and lovely. Our waitress even suggested a wonderful place for dinner. If you are in Galway, definitely check it out.
