This place was delicious! First stop for dinner in Galway, got a Bulmers and the steak burger. It was delicious! I was with a group of six girls and everyone loved it so can’t go wrong with the menu!

This place was a recommendation from our hotel. Stopped in on a Sunday. Had delicious bacon and cabbage (best that I had in Ireland) and potato leek soup. Definitely would return here.
