Dropped up to the Wine Bar above our favourite cheese shop (We always drop in on our trips to Galway) just to pick up a bottle to bring to dinner. Got our bottle and a lot more besides. Fantastic selection of not widely available wines mainly from Europe. Were offered sample tastings of wines that we were interested in, mingled... More

When the rain began after a morning of exploring Galway we grabbed a window seat overlooking the Saturday market and St Nicholas Church to enjoy a cheese and meat tray, a bowl of olives, fresh bread and some red wine. We were given excellent recommendations on all of our choices and thoroughly enjoyed this tiny wine bar.

A small wine bar overlooking the Galway market. It's the door on the left of the cheese shop and is truly a hidden gem! The cheese and wine served here are top quality. The people who work there are lovely and take the time to ask you what type of cheese and wine you like. It's a perfect place to... More

We are so glad we stopped in here! The staff members are extremely helpful, they have a huge variety of cheese on hand, and prices are extremely reasonable. We are cheese snobs and this place was THE BEST. We picked up a handful of cheese to try, some crackers, and chocolate for a snack before dinner and were not disappointed.

Happened by this amazing store. Everything looked wonderful. There was a wide variety of cheeses and meats. The staff was very helpful. Hard to be a traveler and have to leave with only bottled goods.

On a cold day in Galway we'd already had our cuppa and scones so we stopped into Sheridans and went upstairs. For 13 Euro we sampled 5 types of local cheese with brown bread. It was a delicious and enjoyable way to pass some time. The staff was friendly with other customers but didn't interact with us much or explain... More

Popped into Sheridans for a glass of wine and a cheese platter as it was recommended. I had visions of a cosy atmospheric, romantic little place, but was surprised that it was more like a country kitchen/cafe setting. Room was a bit cold and a bit too bright for a relaxing glass of wine and to nibble on some cheese.... More

Seamus Sheridan not only is a cheese enthusiast, but he's a delightful raconteur, an enthusiastic environmentalist, and the host with the most in his upstairs wine bar above the Galway shop. When you've finished shopping in the early evening, pop upstairs for a cheese platter and some wine - whatever Seamus is pouring that evening. It's the best way to... More

Great happy hour with friends. The owner is really knowledgeable about wines and she put together a great Irish cheeseboard for us. Would go again!
