“Excellent Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2014

The Food and service was supreme. There was an excellent choice for each course and each one tasted exquisite. The staff were very friendly and efficient, in fact they were stealth like in their duties yet readily available when required.

We had a family occasion (Communion) with 20 children and 16 adults. The children's menu was extensive and delicious and the staff treated them like royalty. Everyone enjoyed the occasion and highly commended us on our choice of venue.

Very impressed with this hidden gem and it is just a 2 minute walk from Eyre Square in Galway City. I am not connected to this hotel, I just loved it and will be back again and again.

“Lovely Steak”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2014

Loved the steak, also had two excellent desserts - Raspberry white chocolate cheesecake and the chocolate fudge cake, both were gorgeous. Beer there is standard, the only quibble I would have… Had to drink Heineken unfortunately.

“Brilliant value, high quality food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2014 via mobile

After a bit of searching for a place we could eat and listen to some live Irish music we found the Western. We had a set menu three course meal. Very generous portions beautifully cooked and presented. The wait staff were attentive and friendly. After our meal we went across to the bar to listen to some authentic live Irish music. During five weeks of travelling this was one of the highlights.

I got this steak voucher deal for my husbands birthday but we had the kids with us as well. The food was gorgeous and the girls were friendly and helpfull. We could barely get up from the table. I would definitely recommend it and would certainly go back again. The steak was cooked to perfection!

“Steak Dinner Deal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2014 via mobile

We had dinner at the Western Restaurant on a weekend evening and there was a game going in the attached bar that would cause the bar to erupt in loud shouting and cheering, so if you want romance or quite make sure you sit further from the bar area or on a night a game is not going. The food and wait staff were good. We had steak dinners (Groupon meant 15.00 Euros each.
