Description: McSwiggans is a city centre bar and restaurant which has been open for over 30 years. We serve food in the bar from breakfast to early evening and casual dining in the restaurant on the top two floors until late. Specialities include steak, seafood and amazing desserts. We have a great section of wine, beers & cocktails with live sport on our big screen and live music at the weekends. With a labyrinth of rooms we cater to family gatherings, romantic nights out and groups of all sizes.

This is an excellent place to grab a bite and listen to some good Irish music. Close to Eyre Park, and a great choise for dinner.

The food was very good, the drinks were reasonably priced, and the service was good. There was live music, which was also good. Mc Swiggans is more spacious than some other options, and it's not too loud. If returning to Galway, I'd go back.

We visited this pub/restaurant on the 2nd last day of the races to find that it was packed but we got our names on the list for a table and went to the bar to have a drink while waiting.
The atmosphere was brilliant and the people watching opportunities great.
We were seated within 20 minutes of arriving and again the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The food was superb and cooked as asked, this will definitely be another place I will revisit.

After running the Galway 8km last sat nite 56 of us from our running club were booked in for dinner. From the outside you would not expect what awaits you inside. Love this type of building plenty little nooks, loads space for us down the back, staircase to the top was fab, so big!! We were fed and watered by professional, efficient and friendly staff. Food was exactly what we needed after a long day!! Great spot for dinner!!

My wife and I dined here after races on Saturday August 2nd. We enjoyed a cocktail while we waited the estimated twenty minutes for a table. The menu was appetising and extensive. My wife had the monkfish masala dish and I opted for the signature surf and turf. Both were excellent and washed down with a refreshing Pinot Grigio. We shared a sumptuous brownie with hazelnut. Heartily recommended for tasty food, great atmosphere, friendly service and reasonable price.
