Enjoyed this little place for a quick lunch while in Galway. Couldn’t stay for the music but the atmosphere is perfect for it!

The food was PHENOMENAL. What more do you need to know? There was a wait, but it was completely worth it and they called when a table was ready.

Had a great meal here--mussels for me, beef cheeks for my friend--both very good. Small but charming place with very pleasant wait staff. I highly recommend.
