This place is fab. It is huge inside with different areas. We were up at the top of the house. For a Monday night it was packed so I would advise to book! Huge selection. Food was lovely and tasty and portions were huge. Staff very friendly and service was fast. Great night out.

We enjoyed a fantastic dinner for a large conference group here this past weekend. The manager, Hannah, was extremely accommodating, and the service was very efficient. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone with a large group.

We visited Busker's on Saturday last and had amazing sandwiches. Hannah looked after us with excellent service and a lovely smile and attitude. The sandwich arrived with an unexpected side salad including a really tasty potato salad and as for the french fries .... unbelievable. Whenever I am in Galway in the future I will make sure I drop in... More

Whenever I'm on holiday in Galway I make sure I catch the Sunday afternoon jazz session here. It's great to listen to the band while watching people dance around, and there's plenty of good stuff to eat and drink too. I usually have one of the sandwiches with chips and a pint of Smithwick's or Hop House lager.
