Family of four stop for quick lunch when walking the Galway City pedestrian mall and seeing Galway City Museum. The four was good, service was quick and moderately priced.

What a lovely place to spend some time. Our meals were excellent and well priced and the Guinness was great. Nice warm spot by the fire.

Atmospheric place where you can watch football and how people around are worried about their team. Ordered burgers, really liked, deliciously cooked. For two we paid 32 euros

Arrived soaking wet from the rain but soon dried out as it is cosy and warm with an open fire. Lots of interesting decor and character, we had the Irish stew which is one of the best we have had. Friendly service.
