Recommended by some friends for a drink before and after visiting a nearby restaurant. Staff very helpful providing samples of the huge range of ales available and also recommending some wonderful Irish whiskeys. A great way to start and finish an evening in Dublin!

Against the Grain has a wide selection of craft beers. We all ordered the same dish... fish n chips. The fish was extremely fresh (haddock) and the fries were excellent. Also a wide selection of craft beers.

Vast array of beers and whiskeys, good food and great for a shindig - as far as I know they still take bookings. The bar gets crowded but the service tips away so never waiting too long. In typical Galway Bay fashion they have board...More
