This is the place to be after work. Lots of friendly customers, plenty of beer and great pub food. You don't have to be irish but it helps if you love the irish.

Not being on Main street works in Galway's favor. More locals than tourists eat and drink here. Proper pour for a Guinness and THE BEST corned beef you will find anywhere. Their Reuben sandwich has ruined Reuben sandwiches for me everywhere else! Other favorite menu...More
