Perfect for locally caught fish n chips. Love the tea. Plus they do have non-dairy milk... yippeeeee. True tho the toilets could use some care more often e.g toilet roll, cleaning emptying overflowing bin.... but hey look past that.. the fish is amazing.

Melly's fish and chips are top class,few can beat them. I have sampled fish & chips all over the country and it's difficult to decide between Melly's and McDonaghs in Galway.
