One of the best seafood restaurants we know. No visit to Barna is complete without a visit to O'Grady's. Wonderful!

O’Gradys was recommenced by friends for a family celebration meal. The menu offered good choices suiting the varied tastes of our large group all of whom expressed delight with the quality and presentation of their meals. The service was good, all meals arrived at our table together, sometimes not the case with a large group, which was appreciated. Wine prices... More

Very disappointing visit for both a dinner and a lunch. Actually wrote to restaurant management but didn't even receive a reply. That says a lot. Felt the food had gone downhill since a previous visit.

Unassuming from the exterior, this place really is a little gem. Tucked away down a side road on the centre of Barna Village, it is a dimly lit little place with bags of character. My partner and I both had starters (mussels and a prawn cocktail) followed by 2 mains - grilled seabass and a baked hake - all fantastic!... More

Wow what a fantastic place to eat the food is so so fresh and the menu has a great selection to choose from. I had looked on trip advisor to see which restaurants had good reviews and having read all the reviews on O'Grady's we decided to try this place out. From the outside the restaurant doesn't look like much,... More

I have checked out the reviews for tthis restaurant before we booked a table there and thought this should be good. It wasn't good it was brilliant. The food was amazing , the staff very friendly and such a nice atmosphere. Can't wait until we visit again

Food is meant to be enjoyed and savoured. However our visit to O'Gradys was more like a fast food experience. While the food was good, we felt rushed through all three courses. Very disappointing.

Literally on the Pier in Barna village this Gem needs to be experienced. Needless to say the seafood is fresh and varied and there is also a great variety of meat dishes. On a clear day the view extends across Galway Bay to County Clare and the Aran Islands.
