Cod and chips just perfect. The staff were very poorly presented. A smart uniform would make them look far less slovenly. You couldn't beat the food.

If you are looking for the real deal fish and chips you must stop in at McDonagh's in Galway. After a day of sightseeing and an evening in the pubs the fish and chips with a side of mushy peas really hit the spot. The...More

Cod and chips are just the right combination when you need a light meal so that we can walk around without getting too bogged down.

I visited this restaurant in December 2018 and I found the food really good and filling. The snack box with crispy chicken, salmon, hake, cod ( battered fry) are a must try.

Called in for some drinks after eating. the pub was very busy but we got a seat. Great atmosphere, great music worth a visit. The music come on late but our timing was perfect.

Not a fancy place. You place your order and they serve you at a picnic table. Had the fish and chips and it was the best we had had in Galway. A place that is frequented by the locals so that tells it all.

You may want to contact the restaurant with your question as I doubt any customer will know the content of food items.
