“Loved this place years ago, happy to read that it's still great”
Reviewed July 22, 2012 via mobile

I lived and studied in Galway for one semester in 1990. I absolutely loved the Crane Bar, and my friends and I used to go there a couple times a week. The spontaneous traditional music sessions were always fantastic. I'm just now finally planning to visit Galway again for the first time since then, and I'm so happy to read that The Crane Bar still boasts a great music scene.

This is small local pub, with authentic traditional irish music nights. Its a must to watch the musicians and their instruments.
