I ordered the monkfish tacos which were divine. They were served with Pico de Gallo, Celeriac and Red Cabbage, Hot Sauce, Lime Sour Cream and Triple Cooked Fries. Delicious!

Chowder all cream no fish. For a rated hotel you people need to take a drive on the wild Atlantic way and see how to prepare a proper chowder. Not just a few scraps of fish in cream and brown bread was crap

Visited with a large group, the waiting staff were incredibly nice. The menu is a little muddled but the food was lovely. Service was a little slow, particularly the desserts but very good. We would return

Catch a Traditional Irish Music session and see Galway's finest Jazz acts. Open from 8am for breakfast, serving great local food all day, everyday and Night. Acclaimed for its use of local ingredients and noted as making the 'Best Pizza outside of Napoli', The Pins has one gourmet rosette for culinary excellence.
