to say nothing of their outstanding food and generous portions. I had one of the best roast leg of lamb that I've ever tasted. This is a must visit!

The Dail Bar is really cozy and has fire places which make it even more charming! The staff is friendly and the atmosphere easy-going and relaxed. Good music, good beer and really big meals! You will definitely not be hungry when you leave the place. Definitely worth to pay a visit when in Galway!

It was an excellent place to experience galway night life and see soccer match. Surpised that food was also very good for a pub. Normal pub grub with some special mixed in that allowed eveybody in family to be satisfied with dinner.

Popped in for a couple of drinks on halloween, quite busy at about 5 but staff were very friendly. Pints were good. Very busy serving food and it was tempting to partake but we were already booked somewhere else... Nice place on edge of "latin quarter"
