  • If you like American college frat parties, then hit quay street. If you want to go where the locals go, then cross the bridge to Crane Bar.  more »
  • Quay Street is a shopping Mecca, that also features several different types of street performers. We spent several hours here during our trip to Galway, and enjoyed every minute of it. My wife shopped...  more »
  • Great for people watching - we sat outside various pubs with the dogs - thankful for the awnings when it rained.  more »

  • The best thing about this restaurant is that they understand outdoor eating in Galway. Hot water bottles and blankets are the way to go. Great range of gluten free food. Lovely wine menu and a helpful staff to advise your choice. A great place to sit and people watch. Love this place
  • Best dinner we've had on our holiday. The mussels with the cream sauce were absolutely grand. This quant and cozy place has a lovely staff and great food selection. They offered yo mind the baby while we ate. They were so good with him. We enjoyed chatting with the locals in this restaurant.
  • Very tasty, hearty grub in a very comfortable setting. Very generous positions, at a great price - one for the hungry! A small but very diverse menu with excellent choices for meat eaters and veggies alike (and some vegan options too). In a great location in Galway city centre which means it's busy; when very busy, drop in, leave you're name and number and they'll give you an estimated wait time, at which point it's time for pint (e.g. in Neachtain's across the street). Never let down here! Staff are very friendly and helpful too, with no fuss or stress
  • Hard to get a table at times, but that's a positive thing as it shows how busy they are. Trip Advisor recommends them also. Fantastic food and selection, nice atmosphere attentive staff warm cosy. I have had some of my usual favourite dishes here and they are that much better. I eat out a lot in Galway as a native here this is definitely in my top 10 restraints in Galway city and County.
  • Ask for 5 euro noodles with prawn, and you will not be disappointed. Best Asian fast food cafe in Galway. Addictive!
