About Crane Bar, Galway

The locals’ favourite watering hole. But more than drinks are on the menu – music is played live practically every night on the first floor. The ground floor is reserved for the bar. Amateur musicians may entertain the bar below, and the atmosphere is more relaxed. Upstairs however, there’s an almost concert like vibe every night after 9:30pm – quiet, respectful, serious.

The performers may be local or international, but they’ll always be good. Mostly though, the music is classic Trad. The music can play on until the early hours of the morning. No wonder this place is a first stop for most tourist who want a taste of Galway’s music. Arrive early… the place is almost always packed by 9pm.

Crane Bar, Galway Reviews

  • Nice local venue but avoid the Scottish storyteller, that's 2 hours that I'll never get back. Cheap tap beer and of course Guinness for ¢4.40 euros! Cash only! They have other events that sound fun besides the story telling.

  • One of my favourite bars in Galway. Quiet enough to have a friendly chat and good atmosphere. If you like good life music... You can trully enjoy it here too. The Crane is the bar for the craic :)

  • One of my favorite bars in Ireland. Great Trad sessions upstairs and down. Friendly locals welcome new friends. Can't wait to go back and sing a few! Thanks, Mick!

  • Great Guinness with a session of live traditional Irish music. True heaven

  • Lovely traditional pub. The barman is friendly and the atmosphere is nice
