Buddha Bar Galway is an authentic experience with great Asian food at a reasonable price as well as a great selection of cocktails and beers at the bar. We open at 5pm and by 10pm we are rocking with great music and a deal which offers you €6 cocktails for the month of January. Great place to visit for the night.
