If your looking for a traditional Irish whisky bar then I could not recommend gallaghers more, I have lived in Carlisle all my life but only recently visited the bar but the atmosphere is perfect, the attention to detail even down to the shamrocks on the Guinness made my visit exceptional, I'm not a big whiskey drinker but the choice...

Full of low life's and criminals, the bar staff made me feel very unwelcome, the bartender looked miserable which made me uncomfortable and nobody smiles in there! a very depressing atmosphere. I would never go in there again!

This is a very false review from a young lady that had to be barred on the previous date of this review. Gallagher's bar is one of the most friendliest bar in town and we welcome all future customers to be sure. More

Having spent most of my life frequenting the pubs in Carlisle I've got to say that Gallaghers is one of the friendliest places that you will ever visit. Great beer served right , massive range of spirits, darts, pool, music & real life characters on both sides of the bad. Well worth a visit if your from Carlisle or visiting.

To the above obscene comment.. 8-9 younge men from Manchester come into a public house wanting to rip the place apart cause they got layed off from work and it was there last night in carlisle so they thought it would be a good idea to cause trouble! Only the pub had closed its doors at 1am and called last... More

This pub is just a decorated fighting cage. The bar staff arm the local gypsies and lock the exit doors. Drinking is advised so as the alcohol will numb some of the pain the hammers, bats, bars and boots are going to cause. I only wish I was aware of the reputation of this pub before I entered it.
