We stayed at The Twelve and enjoyed our second night's dinner at The Pins. It was a weekday night and absolutely full of locals -- many families and happy Irish people. I had a very good fish and chips -- recommended.

A destination in its own right, The Pins is loved by locals and overnight guests alike. In addition to an incredible food menu there is an equally incredible selection of cocktails,beers and wines. The Pins is a great place to enjoy good coffees,breads 'just out of the oven' from the on-site bakery and tantalising local produce infused with flavours from around the world. Catch a Traditional Irish Music session and see Galway's finest Jazz acts. Open from 8am for breakfast, serving great local food all day, everyday and Night. Acclaimed for its use of local ingredients and noted as making the 'Best Pizza outside of Napoli', The Pins has one gourmet rosette for culinary excellence. Winner of 'the Best Gastro Pub in Ireland' and 'The Best Casual Dining in Ireland'.
