This place should be avoided at all costs , the staff think it's ok to abuse you if you're from a different county or country. They find it funny and amusing when the slag you off and if you reply they throw you out, they...More

Waste of time. Wish I could rate this 0/5. Never had a good night in Carbon. Useless staff, RUDE and creepy bouncers (though there was one sound tall Polish one). They will turn away people who are over the age limit for some bullsh*t excuse...More

Would normally go here but won’t be going anymore, bouncers have been rude to me and refused entry even when I wasn’t drunk and I was polite.

Awful nightclub. Terrible night and completely unfair refusal of entry after paying in. Definitely will not be returning. Three bouncers on the door and one proceeded to physically harass me after continuous verbal abuse. Definitely would not EVER recommend.

Busy nightclub with a good atmosphere. Mainly playing chart and dance music. There was a good few different areas you can go to all playing different music. Will be back if in Galway again.
