Not on the usual lists of trad music bars but you can get your fix of traditional music (as well as a few pop songs that may be requested) with a good trio. Tandoori chicken kababs with couscous and salad were excellent as were mussels....More

Had a meal here Tuesday night , great trio playing/singing trad Irish music, went back again tonight, again really good food, another set of lads playing traditional music, lovely atmosphere, staff very attentive but not in your face.

Good food and bier, friendly atmosphere and live music. A easy way to spend a evening and have tour dinner out. Acceptable prices

Delicious food, live music, friendly atmosphere are the proper ingredients for a typical irish dinner... I spent a pleasant evening at An Pucan and can recommend it.

And the bouncers at the door make no bones about it. They're rude, and antagonistic! If you can make it past them, the food and music are v good! Too bad the doormen run the show!!

Best Pub in Galway. We loved this Pub, the food was great, service excellent and such a good vibe. We watched some football here with the locals and loved it, but be warned it is very popular so get there early

I didn't see one, but there is a room in the back that may have one. Check with them at their website.
Do you have gluten free options?
