“Quality Gone Down Hill Alot”
Reviewed October 11, 2011

Went for Sunday lunch, There was eight of us. Have eaten in Padraicins often but was very disappointed on this trip. Serve was slow even though restaurant was quiet at the time. The streak was fatty and poor quality. The chicken which four of us ordered was very dry with no good taste. The turkey was dry too. The veg are mashed so much their horrible. Won't return again. This used to be one my favourite places cause location is lovely. The Manager and staff need to do a lot to improve this place.

“Great”
Reviewed February 7, 2011

Went to Padraicíns for dinner, the service was great, the food was wonderful with good portion sizes. It is right on the sea so in the daytime the view would be really nice. The maritime theme of the restaurant makes it feel really cozy.

“Fantastic spot”
Reviewed November 30, 2010

went for an early dinner here with a party of 7, real traditional yet not contrived feel to this place, pleanty of parking as it has its own car park, its right on the coat with wonderful views of galway bay, service was good, efficient, great pub grub, not overly cheap but it was quality pub grub, we had fish & chips, burgers, steak sandwiches, soup all very good, no complaints, good beer as well and a great atmosphere despite in being early in the evening, would definitely recommend Pairicins

“delicious food and generous portions”
Reviewed April 15, 2010

went to padraicins in a group of four and we were all very impressed with all the food...
I had the potato skins to start and then the lasagne for mains with a side of garlic potatoes. The lasagne was quite possibly the best i've ever tasted, and trying some of my friends meals, everything seemed up to a similar standard. Portions are large and you wont be hungry after eating here.
We all got starters along with an extra one to share and one person got dessert and the overall cost was just under 80 euro which i thought was very reasonable. would definitely recommend it!
