    You go up one side of this lane and are confronted by greasy, cracked windows and a flock of dumpsters. It's a beautiful charming lane if you come in the other side. We ate at the Seafood Bar and the ...  more »

    To be honest I'm not sure why this wee lane has a trip advisor page but it's super cute to walk down and get a nice photo :)!  more »

    Not sure why people rant on about this street, blink and you are thru it or passed it. It is an old street of Galway, nice to pass thru but really we must have missed something.  more »

    By far the best meal of our trip to Ireland. The crab claws were out of this world. Fresh Galway oysters were perfectly salty and well shucked. But the Asian sea bass dish was the best. Lovely service and wine list. Zero complaints.

    The seafood chowder is one of the best I've ever had! And the Connemara mussels were steamed perfectly. A nice little spot just away from the main tourist-congested Quay Street. I recommend a reservation or come in really early. They were turning people away throughout my dinner there even though there were some open tables. Worth it though!

    Excellent seafood with a nice ambiance off the beaten track in Galway. Good for date nights or special dinners.

    Nice restaurant with lovely seating arrangement. Food is good but small portions. Loved the dessert.

Where to stay in Galway

Stay at the center of Ireland's "Most Irish City," Galway City, by booking a hotel or hostel near Eyre Square, from which all city sights are walkable. If you prefer accommodation with more character, stay at a charming guesthouse or bed and breakfast just outside of the center, or look for lodging in the city's Latin Quarter, a bohemian neighborhood lined with cafes, galleries, and pubs. If you want to explore Galway County, book accommodations in the city, since it's a tourism and transportation hub on the West Coast. If you prefer the quiet countryside, seek out small, family-owned guesthouses on the Aran Islands or a cottage on the Connemara Peninsula.
