This is a local establishment, close to the Castlebar TownCcentre where there are many shops. Tolsters is also close to the Historic Mall, it's central location lends itself to excellent value in dining with on street parking available. Excellent host is our Gerry Tolster who...serves food daily with the personal touch. Excellent food & great value.More

A hidden gem. I eat here regularly and while not high brow the food is excellent and the welcome second to norm. This is a real locals pub serving good food and plenty of it. The waiting is undertaken by Fidelma and she is one...of the nicest and most competent waitress around. Nothing is too much trouble. After campaigning by the locals a new coffee machine was purchased and this has greatly increased the quality of the coffee. Tea is tea. To summarise go thereMore

Been in a few times to watch games and Jerry is always a good host. Great place to watch a game and the Guinness is always good. Jerry runs a good pub and makes sure all feel welcome. When we were last there for the...Scotland game he organised finger food for all customers at half time. Worth a visit if you are in Castlebar.More

That was my first time in Castlebar and I would happily go back just for a pint of Guinness in Tolsters. It has all you expect from a traditional Irish bar, with a very warm welcome from the owner, Gerry. Can't find a friendlier person...in town and he does know ho to pour the perfect pint. Felt like a regular.More

Popped in for a pint and ended up spending the entire afternoon. Jerry the owner was so welcoming, and made every effort to ensure our time in his pub was as good as he could possibly make it!
