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.

  • Proper Irish pub. Trad music every night I believe. Great time. Limited seating in a small space.

  • It was an excellent time. Tuesday night has a bunch of local musicians come to the pub and play. It is quite an enjoyable atmosphere especially with a pint of Guinness!

  • Gr8 pint of guinness best in galway and fab barman and real trad music

  • True Irish experience! We were visiting from Boston and had gone to many pubs that were catering to Americans. We didn't go to Ireland to here covers of American music. So we were delighted to hear traditional Irish music!

  • Great pub with a healthy mix of local and tourist. Music session had good variety of styles due to large band (started at 10 and was 13 when we left). Very popular so arrive early.
