We had lunch in the Dail bar. Food was excellent and so was the atmosphere. It was one of our best meals in ireland. I took the stew and it was delicious.

This is one of our favourite places to eat and we eat in the restaurant. It was very busy but they fitted us in and the food was lovely, there were clean plates all round.

Great pub with a good atmosphere that is just off the main thoroughfare so not too noisy. Good selection of whiskey including some local ones.

We found The Dail when exploring the lovely wee streets of Galway City. Five of us ate lunch and thoroughly enjoyed it! Plenty of choice. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Great pub and restaurant with lots of character.
