      Really solid bar food for lunch. If you can grab a table during a sunny day, you'll be able to eat and drink right in the middle of the action. With street performers playing music on the street, you even get live music to go along with your meal.

      I didn't have high expectations for pub food but the lamb burger and BLT were excellent. Lamb burger was very juicy and worked well with the thick bread. Bacon lovers will enjoy the thick slices of bacon on the BLT.

      Service was pretty good for a busy day as well. Wouldn't recommend for a very large group or kids though because it is a bit tight between the tables.

      Very very busy! No seating available on the covered or non covered patio so we found a nook inside and shared some delicious food!

      The bacon was very flavorful and the fried polenta on the veggie platter was great!

      The salad was exactly what I needed - vibrant greens, tomatoes and a light dressing.

      Enjoyed drinks as the rain started and poured for about an hour so we had lucky timing as well.

      Our family toured most of Southern Ireland over the course of 10 days, and of all the great pubs, this was one was tops! By an incredible stroke of luck, we managed to secure one of the "snugs" and were able to hang for a couple of pints. The character of this place is unsurpassed, and the patrons there were as friendly as they were entertaining. If you're a tourist, grab at least grab 1 pint in this place as it will round out your Irish experience. Just don't order a Murphy's!

      Our first pub of the night did not disappoint! Everywhere was pretty crowded so we just chose a pub and dove in. Ordering our respective Guinness' after being personally guided to the bartender by a very welcoming and energetic group on a guys trip from Dublin. It was a great atmosphere, even with being so crowded. Never once was anyone rude for being smooshed. Great experience and made some wonderful friends for our time in Galway!

      Please stop if you are in Galway! We planned to sit outside as they have prime people watching outdoor seating but as the weather looked blustery we moved indoors and were delighted with the ambiance inside ... the food was delicious, the service SO friendly and the soulwater bulletproof ipa was the tastiest we've had in Ireland!

      We tried the seafood chowder, fennel soup, the lovely things platter, Parmesan polenta fries and tomato bruschetta ... all scrumptious!

      This was my favorite pub atmosphere in Ireland, the interior was so quaint and they had the fireplace roaring on an early afternoon in September, absolutely loved the interior. The seafood chowder here is the best I've tried anywhere, definitely rivals the light but hearty chowders in Maine on the East Coast of the United States. The chowders in Ireland are packed with pieces of fresh seafood, but they have the light and flavorful broth nailed down at this spot! Wished we could have stayed longer to try more items on the menu. A visit at lunchtime during the day may help to avoid the crowds, because at night this place like so many pubs is jam packed and people overflow to the outside.

      One of the best pubs I've been to on this island. The snugs are adorable and the bar men were so nice. A ton of beer options compared to most places and such a cozy vibe. I'd absolutely recommend stopping here. There's also a ton of outdoor seating for the warmer months.
