We had the best time ever in neachtains. Drinks arrived fast and to a high standard. Our server Eve was exceptional. She was so accommodating to our awkward requests and friendly and made our experience 10/10.. All covid restrictions were adhered too which we really appreciated. She is a real asset to the business :)

Fantastic character pub. The inside is amazing like a trip into the past, unspoiled interior.
Good friendly service, with a sunny drinks area outside. A must visit if youre in the city.

Had a great time here on our visit to Galway.
Went for lunch the first time, fabulous Chowder & realised they had a Restaurant upstairs .. The Kasbah, dinner was amazing. Best meal we had in Ireland.
I think the best part was meeting the locals. That’s what we really love when we travel
Great friendly staff, we felt like old friends by the end of our visit.

Me and my partner visited this bar last night for our last night in Galway as we were on a mini staycation and are from Northern Ireland. Credit where credits due the first waitress we got was lovely, really attentive and bubbly (we didn’t catch her name). Now on to the lovely Steff (not) my partner drinks two single vodka with a coke for mix between the two drinks and for whatever reason this really annoyed Steff (none of her business really) she refused to give my partner the drink and said “you’re getting a double” after he explained (nicely) that he prefers two singles and it hadn’t been an issue with the first waitress Steff got even more patronising and said “two drinks for one person? It’s my job to make sure people are handling there drink” which completely baffled us as she had just offered a double which was the same thing. She then accused my partner of not being able to handle his drink when she was challenged and refused to serve him two single vodkas at the age of 26 (he was also stone cold sober) She got the manager to come down and immediately he said I’m sorry about her I know what she can be like? The manager continued to brush it off and after speaking to the couple beside us who were just as shocked at how ignorant Steff was we decided to make a formal complaint. We explained how condescending / passive aggressive she was towards us in which he replied “I’m sorry my hands are tied with her, come down tomorrow for a drink she’s not in” in which we replied “no thanks!” Obviously :). Thanks for ruining our last night in Galway Steff - if you dislike your job that much I think it’s time for early retirement.

Ordered coffees and cheesecakes in July 2020; Shocked at the bill showing cheesecakes priced at €8.50 (they arrived 20 minutes after the coffees). Prices like this give the hospitality industry in Ireland a bad name.
There was no price display for the dessert menu otherwise I would have passed on it.

I am a bit shocked writing this really - we are a couple in our late 50s and after a wonderful meal at Oscar's Seafood Bistro (highly recommended by the way) we decided to have a nightcap at Naughten's before retiring to our nearby hotel - the young barman decided that "we had had enough to drink already" - I can honestly say I have never in my life been treated like this in a bar before. This pub is suffering from an over confidence in their popularity where basic customer service has been cast aside. Don't go here!!!

Any pub that refuses to set up 7 pints of stout (to sober, middle aged men) at midday on a Saturday, because they "don't do groups," does not deserve the custom.

If you're a lonely sort of person, then Neachtain's sounds great, just don't make the mistake of making any friends while you're in there.

Only for it's location this bar would def not have customers. The bar staff are def the rudest people I /we have ever experienced. We live in Galway so know the city & venues v well. We frequented neachtains most sat nite for 1 or 2 but never again. One of our group was refused a drink last nite & she only had had 3 drinks consumed. This person has been going into this bar for years & has brought numerous groups in with her. They are very hormonal staff & it really depends on their mood, especially one blonde girl!!! A grumpy , uninterested person should not be serving behind a bar. Easily known you are all only the staff & get your wages at the end if the week. You certainly would never make business people . Shame in you, how dare you treat customers so rudely, this will be voiced to the owner. Thankfully there are numerous friendly staff in other bars such as the dail, the front door, garvans, etc

Arrived in Galway Friday 22nd of August with my friend and her sister for her daughters Hen Party.
We were having a fantastic time and spent quiet bit money between our accommodation for two nights,meals and shopping. After a lovely meal at The House Hotel we arrived at Naughton's Pub and sat at a table outside to be told very rudely by staff that they do not serve Hen Parties. We were a quiet group, 4 of us in our fifties and the younger professional girls are in their late twenties and thirties.One person in our group is a Publican and we understood why they might not want a Hen Party. The problem wasn't that they didn't want to serve us it was the very rude attitude of the staff and how embarrassed they made us feel, people sitting around us were very surprised and shocked. We were made very welcome at two other pubs (reviews to follow) and had a wonderful evening.

I had a similar problem in this pub a couple of months ago, as a regular in this pub for years, I arrived one Sunday night with 3 other friends to be told they did not serve groups of 4 people or more, I asked to speek to the manager but only got to talk to someone that was acting manager for that night, my friends and I were most embarrassed as we had to turn around and walk out after people sitting at the bar had witnessed what had happened, my friends and I have not gone back since and told our story to a lot of people who no longer go to this pub anymore, think the staff and management need to review their policies and attitude to customers.
