Been there a few times during my stay in Galway. In my opinion, one of the best in town ! Outside the center, you won't find the youthful exuberance. I especially recommend Tuesday Night with Irish Set (and dancers) : really nice and friendly people.
Never tried the food there but heard a lot of compliments about it.

Went twice. First time it was excellent. Great live bands plus a dj. Second time was terrible. So average overall.

Our Family usually tries to stick to the rule of not going to the same place twice during a holiday. For Monroe's we had to break it!
The Restaurant is very good all round: great food, brilliant atmosphere, happy service, just great.

We did not actually eat at Monroe's (though it was recommended). However we did stop by for a pint and some local music. The staff was friendly, the music and atmosphere was great, the locals were very fun!

Here is one of the best pubs in Galway. You should spend at least a night over there. The jam session on the second floor are great.
