    Start to finish we had an amazing day out. Our group was 20 lads and i booked this as our saturday activity not really knowing what to expect. Padraic picked us up from the hotel as scheduled and even waited around for the couple of stragglers to make it downstairs. Start to Finish he couldnt do enough for us and was a pleasure to deal with (Even if some of our group were not). Flight in was amazing and the pints on the island i didnt know whether to drink them or eat them with a spoon!!

    The tour itself wasnt for us , we were happy having a few pints and a laugh so we explained this to Padraic and it was no issue. Boat ride back was some craic and if the pints in Innis Oirr were good the pints in Tigh Chualáin where we stopped off on the way back to galway were out of this world.

    We invited Padraic for dinner and a few more pints and he very kindly obliged, even bought everyone a pint. Absolute gentleman and would highly reccomend this trip as something completly different for a stag do.

    A great Saturday afternoon activity for a hen, we had such a laugh cycling around Galway with great tunes and all the locals waving and cheering us on. Highly recommend this as an activity for any group.

    The funniest comedy show I have been to. Thoroughly enjoyed the night, every act was very funny. Free food at the break was an added bonus! They provided pizza, sausages and wedges. This was great as me and my partner are vegan and were not looking forward to watching everyone eat, but we got to eat the wedges! Would definitely go again if given a chance!

    We always try to do a walking tour at the start of our city breaks so we get to know what there is to see in the city and the Tribes Tour of Galway didn't disappoint. Our guide was Eilish and she was very friendly and informative, she took us to all the main sights in the city and told us about these with entertaining and interesting stories. It definitely helped us get the most out of our trip to Galway.

    Gem of a pub. Fantastic Guinness, great staff and great for an aul trad session. Very cosy pub, just away from the madness of shop street and the like, one of the best pubs in Galway city easily.

    We went to Taaffes to enquire if we could book a table for four for the 5.30 music session on Sunday 28/9/21. One of the bar staff told us they don’t take bookings but come back at 5pm and we might get a table. He was really friendly and helpful. We returned at 5pm and were told all the tables were full inside and we couldn’t sit outside because there were only 2 small tables left and we were not permitted to pull them together. When we assured her we wouldn’t pull the tables together she reluctantly let us sit down. I went inside to use the bathroom and when I went in there were three empty tables. I asked the barman why were we not let sit at one, he said he didn’t know they were there but they ‘might be reserved’, I said we had been told earlier they don’t take reservations. He replied ‘they might be reserved for family/friends of management’. When I didn’t argue he said ‘I’ll get you in’. We went in and had a really great night. However the bar staff were quite aggressive when they were clearing the bar at closing time. At one point I could feel drops of water landing on my head and when I looked up, one of the bar men was spraying sanitiser in the air from a bottle while shouting at us it was time to go home. Having said all that we did really enjoy the night but in my opinion some of the staff need to be reined in by management.

    We ate lunch here twice when spending the weekend in Galway.

    It is located on a busy street,right in the centre of all the action and is great for people watching.

    I had the full Irish breakfast both days and it was delicious. Service was friendly and efficient.

    Had a few pints at the bar while watching the matches. Then ventured out the back to find some live music. A great local act was playing, Ryan Bradley. He kept everyone in high spirits

    Then we ordered 3 rounds of Zombies from the cocktail bar. I can't remember anything after that :-P

    Cocktails. This joint takes them very seriously. And visitors should hike the few extra blocks to have them.

    Does it have a great craft beer selection? Absolutely. But the cocktails are where the action is.

    Have a classic cocktail and, because if the thought put in to the ingredients and attention to detail and technique you'll be reminded why they are classics.
