A warm inviting chilled restaurant with lovely views over the beach. A respite between storms. Happy young staff, roaring fire, clean tables, wonderfully prepared and presented meals. Left full and relaxed before driving home.

The staff were very friendly and service was very quick. The restaurant was very busy the night we were there and was very welcoming. The portions were huge and got the better of use. The fish we had was fresh and tasted great.

I have visited padraicins many times on our visits to Galway and I just can't stay away. This place this dining with a view. The restaurant is situated on a beach where during the fine weather you can sit outside and eat. This time of the year we had to sit inside but that doesn't detract from the experience. The... More

We stayed in Padraicins last weekend and i can highly recommend it. The food was top class for lunch, dinner and breakfast The accomodation was warm clean and very comfortable and we all had a great sleep.The staff especially Abbie were excellent and nothing was too much trouble. Padraicins is definately worth a visit and overnight stay.

Just looking for a place to eat and maybe sleep. Walked in and sat down for a beer and were immediately enfolded. Simon was an outstanding host. We only lamented that he was off "tomorrow". Sorry our schedule only allowed one night. Only giving them a 4 because I never bother to read 5's😁
