Galway ( GAWL-way; Irish: Gaillimh, pronounced [ˈɡal̠ʲɪvʲ]) is a city in the West of Ireland, in the province of Connacht. It is the county town of County Galway, which is named after it. It lies on the River Corrib between Lough Corrib and Galway Bay, and is the sixth most populous city on the island of Ireland and the fourth most populous in the Republic of Ireland, with a population at the 2016 Census of 79,934.
Located near an earlier settlement, Galway grew around a fortification built by the King of Connacht in 1124. A municipal charter, received in 1484, allowed for the citizens of the then walled city to form a council and mayoralty for the city. Controlled largely by a group of merchant families, the Tribes of Galway, the city grew into a trading port. Following a period of decline, as of the 21st century, the city is a tourist destination and is known for hosting numerous festivals, celebrations and events, including the Galway Arts Festival.

Best pint o Guinness in Ireland. Place is generally packed. So expect some delay in service. Not too heavy on the wallet.. but the wait is well worth it for the perfect pint of Guinness. They have a good whiskey selection as well. Highly recommend Tigh Neachtain. Fun fact: The building was the home of Humanity Dick, founder of RSPCA.

Most wonderful lunch - chicken salad was perfect! Delicious cider, fantastic staff, and cozy and intimate booths unlike anywhere.

If you don't come here, you've not really been to Galway. Good selection of drinks including whiskey tasting and local beers. We didn't eat, but the seafood chowder smelled amazing.

A gem of a pub just off Shop Street. It's small and quirky with plenty of snugs and warming fires. Great selection of beers and decent food. Well worth a visit

We had some beer here of course. Sitting outside you can enjoy the huge amount of people stolling through the main pub street in Galway. Nice place to stay!

Amazing atmosphere, They also have the best Guinness in town. Very cute nooks to cozy up in and there is a real fireplace too!

Lovely pub. Has a wide variety of small batch gin. Wonderful staff. Even the food is good, the BBQ chicken wings were properly spicy and to die for. Highly recommended.

Full all the best pretentious people for all corners of Ireland. Great seating area outside with a touch of culture inside. Lovely all year round. Make sure to get your hand on the Oscar wild water at an insignificant price of about 3.30 euro per bottle. Booze is expensive, buts its no temple bar, Dublin(but I think it wants to be) Staff are good. No hens or stages allowed espically if your from Mayo(joke, build the wall!!)

I was visiting Galway on a trip with old university friends and was refused entry inexplicably. I was asked whether we'd been drinking (yes, we were visiting the area on a weekend night). Can only assume it was because we were men on our own. Nearing forty and married, it was something I hadn't experienced since my uni days and honestly didn't expect in an obviously vibrant stag/hen town. Might sound like sour grapes, but is an honest assessment of our experience.

Such a shame that they refuse service afor this establishment as a rule for “stag parties”. We were a small group of six respectable individuals in good spirits, dressed normally, not disturbing any customers, only looking to have a drink and enjoy our evening. Such disrespectful behaviour to potential customers is outrageous. By all means, refuse service in circumstances where a customers behaviour is impacting on other patrons enjoyment, but rejecting some customers outright only serves one purpose which is to damage your own business. Our group had a positive experience of Galways nightlife overall, and we were welcomed into many other establishments, happy to spend our money where our custom is appreciated. I certainly won’t be visiting your pub again on my next visit to Galway
