Good welcome, food & ambience on a quiet Tuesday evening, and excellent service from very attentive staff. Would benefit from a pedestrian cycle on traffic lights as you have to cross a busy road, but worth the trouble.

A trip out to Donnellys in Barna is worth the 15 minutes from Galway for a really nice bar, great food, great service, in a very relaxed atmosphere, and a good Guinness. Great for families too.
