Fodor's Review

Situated 1 km (½ mile) from Eyre Square, across the road from the exotic g Hotel and a stone's throw from Lough Atalia, this pub with rooms makes an excellent base for visiting Galway City if you're traveling by car. There's ample free parking—leave the car here, and explore on foot. A row of attractive old houses with floral window boxes has been converted into one building, with three large bar areas taking up most of the ground floor. The guest rooms, on the floor above, are totally separate from the bar areas, with their own entrance. They are smallish but comfortable, with unfussy, contemporary furniture, generously proportioned bathrooms, and good sound insulation. The pub serves hearty, bistro-style fare, freshly prepared to order, and is enormously popular with locals—always a sign of good value.
