Had 2 great cocktails, Strawberry Daquiri and Mojito! Expensive but worth it! Orders Squid Rings to share as more interested in the drinking! What was served was 4 round inedible circles of plastic! To served such frozen crap in Galway city is an absolute disgrace!...More

Have become addictive to the Irish Stew here over the past few weeks. It's probably the best in town. Great quality lamb with no fat. Beautifully cooked vegetables and the overall flavour is to die for. Heading back in there again for it today.

Popped in for a quick toastie and Guinness, The barman was excellent and was great with customers. Came back later in the day as the sun came out, the beer garden is one of the nicest I have been in. Great place.
