Description: Mc Donagh's have been tantalising the taste buds of both Visitor and Local for four generations. The Family knowledge of Fish and dedication to their customers has earned them the reputation of being one of Ireland's best Seafood's Houses. Mc Donagh's is divided into two sections: In the Seafood Restaurant you will find a great variety of fish dishes on our menu. From native Clarenbridge Oysters, Salmon, Crab, Scallops,Prawns, Hake, Lemon Sole, Plaice, Haddock, Wild Mussels and Ray. Smoked Salmon from Connemara and whatever else the Fisherman can get his hands on. A new addition to our menu is Irish Rib Eye Steak from Mc Geough's Butchers Oughterard Co. Galway. In our Fish & Chips Bar the fish is cooked to order, and you are guaranteed the freshest of Chips, as our potatoes are peeled and cut on the premises. Our Fish & Chips can be eaten on the premises or taken away, we also have outside seating during the summer months.

Simple and unpretentious with quality food . . . and, yes, the fish and chips are among the best - but you won't go wrong with the rest of their seafood! If you're in Galway for more than a day or two there's no excuse for not stopping in for lunch or dinner.

Great home made proper fish and chips. Located on popular Quay Street, so very central. This chip shop is one of the oldest chippers in Galway and family run by so the quality is great. If the que's out the door, don't let it put you off, it moves really quickly. Great service.

Nicest fish & chips in the world & huge portions & very friendly staff :) Always great service & busy atmosphere. Right on Galway's famous Quay Street in the Latin quater, in the heart of Galways Tourist spot! Looking over Spanish Arch.

If you go to Galway, you must visit McDonagh's. Their fish and chips are famous. Dining there for dinner is a superb way to sample excellent seafood. I highly recommend it.
