This was an incredible place that did not disappoint. If I could give it 100, I would. If you read my other posts, I am brutally honest. A few years back we went to Ireland. When we walked into the bar area, we were back...More

It's a pretty standard Chicago Irish Bar. Definitely seems to skew to a younger crowd. Pretty decent food. Nothing I'd go out of the way for, but nicely done with friendly service.

We have gone to Galway Arms twice to celebrate Irish New Year's. This occurs at 6 o'clock Chicago time. They do a countdown and give out free champagne. Super cute. We have also been here for St. Patrick's Day (or "Parade Day") and sat out...More

Voted "Best Irish Pub" 4 years running! Come to Lincoln Park for our amazing food, drink and brunch. The grub at Galway Arms is authentic, fresh and delicious! Galway was carved out of two 90-year-old buildings on Clark Street, and the lived-in, weathered feel remains. With its two fireplaces, friendly staff and amazing dishes this is a great place to grab dinner and a beer. Come in to Galway Arms today!
