Very popular pub in the centre of Galway on the east side of Eyre Square. All the features of the old bar are retained and walking through the door, you might as well be walking into an Ireland of the 1950s. The pub is subject to a preservation order so there is no danger of anything being changed in the immediate future.
At the back of the pub is a large outdoor beer garden with seating which is ideal for smokers as well as those who like their drink outside. Areas of the beer garden are under cover and are heated so ideal for the winter months.
From media reports it was sold for over €14m in the property bubble of the mid 2000s! Great pub as it is, when you see the bar you will wonder how anyone could spend so much on it!

Down the Spanish Arch there is a street called Quay Street, it's namesake pub is really fun and busy with live music and good food served over lunch and in the evenings. Decor is authentic church interior, re-worked and well worn. Lovely for an afternoon drink or a few more in the evening.

My girlfriend and I took a tour with Galway Walking Tours recently even though they were out of season. Aside from the usual historical info we were delighted to get plenty of funny stories about Galway events and characters.
