Visited Donnellys for lunch lately, not first time. Later went back for dinner as it was so enjoyable. Really atmospheric old style bar with modern facilities. Fish top class. Good wine list. Great waiters.

We were driving from Clifden and found this pub/restaurant west of Galway. Perfect stop for lunch and easy to park. We have had chowder in several restaurants during our trip and this was the best! Also, there was heating in the ladie´s room!

Stopped in for a drink. Grand place.... few locals at the bar but not much effort made by the staff to interact with us even though we sat at the bar.
