Stopped off coming from Galway after a morning's shopping. We were ravenous so we were delighted to be seated immediately. We decided to have the toasted special which consisted of ham, tomoto and onion. When it arrived it had a lovely salad and chips and it only cost €5.95 which we thought was excellent value. It was beautifully presented and hot. There is plenty of parking, it's central and well worth a visit if you are passing through Claregalway. We will definitely return to this restaurant.

We went for dinner here recently, and I have to say the food and the staff are the worst you will find.
The two meals we got were just terrible, we left it on the plate we couldn't eat it.

The staff were awful, uninterested and couldn't give a damn. We asked for more drinks and gravy and none of them came to the table.

I'm from Galway, and I'll never go near this place again

So, some of the reviews are bad and mine is long to persuade you to ignore those bad ones!

The bar: a great spot with plenty of locals. Bar-woman/manager Olivia welcomed people by name and knew their usuals. Pretty good sign. She recommended a hot whiskey to me - yum!

Restaurant: opens 7:00 a.m. which for Ireland is amazing! Olivia recommended Black Pudding appetizer - really really good. Also had goat cheese bruschetta - flavored perfectly. Very fresh salad accompanied. My friends had meatballs (good, huge) and chicken - no complaints at all!

Rooms: it's a small hotel - about 25 rooms I think. Descent size and very reasonable - especially so close to Galway city! I'll remember this for Galway Races. ;-)
