Wonderful, really wonderful place. Just cool enough but not too cool, keeping a cosy welcoming vibe. It's a small bar with a chilled atmosphere. Awesome selection of Galway Bay craft beers and equally awesome selection of guest crafts and cans served by enthusiastic and friendly staff.

Great little place just on the edge of the old town. Excellent general beer range - Beavertown, Siren, etc. I was glad to find a place with all (?) of the Galway Bay Brewery beers and, even better, a "bar bat" option to get three thirds so you can try three drinks at a time. **Trip Advisor has this listed...

A cosy place to spend time with friends and enjoy drinks. There is a brilliant atmosphere, with friendly staff, lovely clientele and a great selection of drinks available. The decor of the bar is so quirky and atmospheric.

Not only does this bar have a great beer selection, but provides great company too! The bartender was very friendly and truly knowledgeable about beer. Great relaxed atmosphere, great beer, great company, what else could you ask for? If you love beer and fun people definitely stop and have a pint or two!

A small bar with charm & character to spare. I wish it was my "local"!! a bit out of the centre but well worth the 10 minute walk. Staff really friendly & helpful. Knowledgeable about the beers they serve, of which they have a tremendous range. Only too happy to let you taste a drop before you order. Less expensive... More

Great selection of craft beers. That have all of their own "Galway Brewing Company" beers plus a large variety of others too. Guys behind the bar are really helpful. Great cosy pub with an open fire.. perfect for date night!
