Love the Westend, it's the area to visit when you come to Galway. Taylor's Bar is great and there are plenty of other pubs and restaurants to keep you fed and watered.

Not quite 'the West End'
Oct 2019
A reasonable collection of pubs, cafes and the odd restaurant but this is not the 'West End'. The menus are pretty standard but it is fine if you are not expecting a lot of options.

Galway's Westend is hopping at the moment and the crowds they are attracting bring good vibes also.
Jul 2019 • Friends
This area is fantastic! We were on our holidays and ate food in Dela, had a drink in Monroes and then onto Taylor's Bar & Beer Garden for a great night. Taylor's really is the best Irish bar and beer garden in Galway!!! Such a great pub - Had a blast with the girls. Cocktails were excellent, staff were on their toes and the atmosphere in the garden was brilliant. Live music and dj were on point and the tunes were bopping. Can't believe I hadn't been in there before last weekend. I got a recommendation from a friend and Taylor's is as good as any of the other big pubs up near Eyre Square. This area they call Galway's Westend is hopping at the moment and the crowds they are attracting bring good vibes also. We had some chips in Giovannis afterwards to complete a great experience in Galway's Westend.
