The food was average but the service.. the worst service I've ever seen in my entire life. Highlights had to include the waitress who we asked for a dessert menu, she said sure one moment please and then proceeded to walk out the door past us as her shift was over! Needless to say we didn't get the dessert and... More

Myself and my finance went to the huntsman for dinner one of the evenings we were staying in Galway and I can honestly say it was the nicest battered cod and chips I have ever eaten! The batter was light and crispy and the cod was so fresh and cooked to perfection

We dined in the restaurant on 17th Dec- the meal was not of the standard that we had previously encountered. A reheated meal and vegetables not up to standard. We dined again on the 29th of Dec. the steak was greasy and average , the chips were soggy and greasy! So very very disappointed on both occasions. Have you changed... More

Very bad service order a Bailey's coffee and was told they had no spoons or saucers and was made carry the boiling hot glass to table which burnt my... More

Had dinner here with friends recently. Booked a table in advance, still had to wait almost 25 mins to be seated with no staff around telling us when we'd be seated...just "in a minute" - not very professional. The food was average at best, not that great. And no-one was around for us to get the bill and pay. When... More

My family and i have been visiting the Huntsman a couple of times a year for a number of years and I feel the quality and flavour of the food has really deteriorated recently, on our most recent visit last weekend, the vast majority of our group of ten were not happy with their choice. The menu is lacking imagination... More

I visit the Huntsman on a regular basis and it never crossed my mind to write a review. The staff are great, the food is always good and service, although slower than some other places, is done with a smile and because it's a little slower, quality and attention to detail means it's well worth the wait. Free parking and... More

Needed a break from diving from Dingle to Connemara and decided to stop and check out Galway. We planned to do a little sight seeing in town but needed some refreshments first. The first place we came upon was the Huntsman. We sat at the bar and for how not busy it was it took much too long to be... More

Brilliant local food full of flavour and cooked perfectly. We had a full breakfast, a mini breakfast, scrambled eggs and poached eggs with loads of toast, and great tea & coffee. All were presented very simply but the tastes speak for themselves. We were stuffed for most of the day. A great bustling atmosphere and really friendly staff.
