“Good traditional pub !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

Great place Monroe's. Went here twice during a four night stay in Galway earlier this month (October 2012). The food is good and hearty, and the beers are good. They also have great pizza, made by the takeaway pizza guy right next door. There's a door between the pub and the pizza place, you just go through and order your pizza, and then it's brought to you in the pub - genius ! Just bear in mind that although the pub takes credit cards, the pizza guy does not, and will want paying in cash.
Plenty of tellys for sport etc, and live entertainment too. Can't knock it !!

“Down da west!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

I remember this place when smoking was allowed in pubs. Can't help but think the patrons grew their own tobacco. Very creative bunch! Good oul days. Anyway, Monroes for a great pint, a good lash of irish trad and ballod type music and very famous for it's pizza.

“Great fun, good food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

We were lucky enough to see the set dancing here. During our 11 days in Ireland, this was the only place where we saw this happening. Loved every minute of it! Great pub, and they have lots of fried, yummy foods that go well with a late night out!
