Voted "Best Irish Pub" 4 years running! Come to Lincoln Park for our amazing food, drink and brunch. The grub at Galway Arms is authentic, fresh and delicious! Galway was carved out of two 90-year-old buildings on Clark Street, and the lived-in, weathered feel remains. With its two fireplaces, friendly staff and amazing dishes this is a great place to grab dinner and a beer. Come in to Galway Arms today!

The shepherds pie was a five star meal recommended by a five star man. Nice couch seating area inside. Conar was a gem. It was like being served by a mix of Tom Hanks and Hugh Jackman.

It is a great Irish pub for a couple but not a large group or family. Service was slow. Very slow and she wasn’t really interested in talking or informing us of the food and beer options.

In this pub you can feel the typical Irish atmosphere: low light, soccer games on the screen, beer and good Irish food. We had fish&chips and the Irish breakfast.
