“Best fish restaurant ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2014

This is by far the best restaurant for quality fresh fish .The ambience is the best by far in Galway for a romantic meal and the device is top drawer.
Highly recommended

“Great seafood restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2014

Everything went fine for us in this very pro restaurant. Fast and efficient service. Very good sea food, fresh, purposely cooked. Prices are very reasonable for this standard. Dover sole was the best I ever had for years and years.

“Service a little lackadaisical but food excellent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2014

Whenever I visit Galway I always make at least one visit to Kirwan's and this trip was no exception. Friendly greeting and promptly shown to a table upstairs. I sat unnoticed for 5-10 minutes before having my drink order taken. The food order followed - home smoked salmon followed by fish and chips. The drink took a while to arrive but then I guess Guinness is a slow pour. The salmon itself was gorgeous and the presentation was stunning. The mix of flavours with the various accompaniments was stunning. The fish and chips were well presented and tasty. My only complaint was that the chips could have been a little crisper. The fish itself was tasty. All in all an above average place to eat - recommended,

“Great food over-priced”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2014 via mobile

Had my birthday here a while back with my family and friends. Restaurant is lovely and comfy. The food was to a high standard and tasted great. Only negative would be there pricing is to high for the portions and the service was to slow for what we paid.

“Large group - Delicious Food, Great Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2014

We had a group of approx 20 people recently for dinner and went to Kirwans Lane.
For such a large group we were very looked after, with our wine kept topped up and
plenty of delicious food across the three courses.
Will be the first place I go for dinner on my next trip. Delicious!!
