I sometimes have a preconceived idea of what I'll order before I even get to a restaurant. Big mistake when visiting Kirwan's on my last visit I was amazed at the menu on offer and decided to opt for Oysters followed by Brill. Beautifully prepared and promptly served by wonderful staff.

Using Tripadvisor app I found this gem on a one night business visit to Galway. Hidden off Ship Street the welcome and ambience on arrival was just perfect.

Had the pleasure of eating here on Saturday night and was not disappointed.The service and food were excellent along with the cosy atmosphere.We had the scallops and chicken livers as starters and the flavours were amazing followed by turbot and lobster tail which was flawless.From the excellent service and food it is well worth a visit.

Found this place in one of the back alleys. Warm atmosphere, very pleasant background music. Food was excellent, wife had the cold seafood, I wanted to try the local fish and chips. Portions were of a good size, all food, was presented well, and of high quality. Finished off with chocolate and ice cream and coffee. I would recommend this... More

Brought my fish loving wife here as a treat. She said the salmon was as good as she ever had. I too enjoyed my prawn starter and fish and chip main course. Atmosphere is excellent and service friendly. While the prices may initially look high the final bill was resonable for what was a superior quality meal.

Definitely one of the Galway highlights! I had the creamed rice which was amazing, the creme brulee was also sensational. Lovely service very flexible staff who definitely try to do as much as they can to make your visit perfect.
