My wife and myself decided to celebrate our New Years celebration with our Daughter in O' Connor Bar in Salthill. Never been there before or knew about it but as it turned out we had a wonderful evening in a very scenic pub. A big crowd on a night like this was a given but I loved the atmosphere and... More

Really great pub with plenty of atmosphere, live music and more Irish colour and charm then you can imagine. Staff are very friendly and the guinness is excellent. The decor on the walls and ceilings are second to none and you will not see anything like it anywhere else in the country.

Our trip to O'Connors pub gave us the true Irish experience. Even if you aren't into drinking, O'Connors pub is a place you must visit if you are in Galway. The word 'pub' is short for 'public house.' Historically the pub is where people met to settle disputes, talk about the latest political issues facing the country and town, and... More

I Have to say this is now my favourite pub in Ireland. We went last night at 7.45, it does not open until 7.30 so when we arrive we had a good choice of seating area and time to take a look at the memorabilia all around us. It was amazing, beautiful soft lighting and a rouring fire. It wasn't... More
