“Dive Bar”
Reviewed May 14, 2014 via mobile

What more do you want other than a great selection of craft beers on tap and bottle. A small pub with lots of attitude. Probably not everyone's cup of tea but we liked it

“Great beer selection”
Reviewed May 5, 2014

Great beer selection at the Salt House. Went to the Salt House this year (2014) and four years ago on another visit to Galway. The beer selection has improved over the last four years and the bartenders love talking beer. Great bar for beer lovers.

“Great atmosphere and craft beer selection!”
Reviewed May 5, 2014

We enjoyed trying a few of Ireland's craft beers here at the Salt House. The bartender was very helpful and the atmosphere was lively. Would definitely return.

“Not your average Irish Pub”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

Ha, we finally found a craft beer pub in Ireland. Galway Bay Brewery product on tap, plus other craft beers from around the world. Great atmosphere, not stale, younger, and very friendly staff and patrons. Just across the bridge from Quay Street.

“No Guinness; what a delight!”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

Just went here for drinks. Ireland is singly the most expensive place in the world I've ever been when eating and drinking, and when all you get is Diageo Guinness rubbish, places like this are a joy to find. Great staff, a great atmosphere and great beers.
An absolute must for anyone going to Galway.
