Description: The Oslo Bar in Salthill boasts the first and only Microbrewery in Galway which offers a great range of international beers, fresh food and a variety of novel evenings.With an ever changing menu the Oslo keeps people coming back to enjoy the many creative dishes inspiried by "in-season and fresh" ingredents. There is a wide range of international beers but while there you should try our own Bay Ale and Stormy Porter - brewed right on the premises.The front portion contains a comfortable range of eclectic furniture and the back part, set up with German beer garden style sturdy tables. The name Oslo itself comes from the Oslo Hotel which once encompassed the whole premises.Focused on food with a daily menu served from 12 until 10 daily. Select from a good range of interesting dishes. Enjoy the Weekend with brunch including Eggs Benedict and French toast which has fast become something of a Galway institution. An open fire and large comfortable smoking area tick a few more boxes making the Oslo a really great destination.

Dropped in for a quick pint while holidaying in Galway. Fantastic selection of beers available on draft and in bottle, very knowledgeable bartender on their wide selection. Great atmosphere and vibe in this place, it has retro furniture! Would certainly reccomend.

Olso has a great menu, with a variety of healthy options, many choices of drinks, and a great staff that is willing to answer any questions about the menu. One of the best values in Galway.

The Oslo is the place to go for beer in Galway - not only is it the home of Galway Bay Brewery, but they also feature an extensive selection of Irish and international craft beers. The atmosphere is casual and fun, and kid friendly. The food was very good and reasonably priced, and the service was fast and friendly. If you're a craft beer lover, don't miss The Oslo!

so the front part of the house is a mix of various size tables, to the middle is a long bar and in the back is where they show a variety of sports matches. They do have a varied menu which is great if you just want to get a bite to eat but not fuss with reservations. They have a mix of regular size menus as well as more tapas like choices. Finally, this is a great place if you are coming with a large group or kids.

I was in Salthill for a conference and I went walkabout as I couldn't face the terrible food in the hotel. I didn't have high expectations as Salthill is full of the dread 'family' restaurants (i.e. cheap sausages and chips as the mainstay to keep the kids happy). So I was delighted to come across Oslo - I like Galway Brewery beers and their branches in Dublin, I didn't know their main brewery was in Salthill. I went for the veggie burger with cheese (the barman's recommendation) and it was excellent - its so rare to get a veggie burger where real thought has gone into it. But the best thing is the beer - I had the Buried at Sea milk stout, and it is truly delicious, up there with my favourite stouts. The place is very big, and I suspect it would get a little noisy and crowded at times, but on my visit on a thursday night with the World Cup on TV it was just about perfect.
