We stayed the night just up the street and the lady put us onto Donnelly's for dinner. We couldn't have been luckier as the food was great. All of our servers were attentive and helpful with meal suggestions. As you might expect, the seafood on the coast of Ireland was outstanding as was the lamb stew that I had. We would certainly return there the next time we are anywhere near Galway.

Barna is a short drive from Galway and the restauant is well worth a visit. We had our evening meal here after a day exploring Connamara. Fantastic and very fresh seafood served in a variety of traditional and imaginative ways. Friendly service. Will definetly go again next time we are in Galway.

The food here was great, with a nice variety of fish and meat dishes to choose from. The best point was the service, which was the best I'd experienced in a long time. The staff were polite, fast and efficient. Will definitely come here again.
