Stopped here for some food and had the daily special. The food was absolutely brilliant and the service was exceptional as well. Prices were very reasonable for the quality. Would definitely recommend!

We ate in several pubs across Ireland and The Dail Bar in Galway was our favorite. Staff was friendly and helpful and we enjoyed the pub atmosphere. The food was very fresh and well-prepared. And the staff was knowledgeable when helping us find gluten-free items.

We had a late lunch here on a Tuesday and it was the perfect time. Not crowded, staff was very friendly and the food was outstanding, especially the fish and chips and fish soup. Not to mention the "bundy" burger.

We Popped in throughout the day to escape the heat. The staff were friendly and the drink selection was great - particularly good gins and whiskies.

Ate here on recent trip to Galway. Pleasant pub atmosphere and friendly staff. Burger was okay and beef stew quite good. Not bad at all.

Had Sunday lunch here recently. Staff and service are excellent. Roast of the day was beautifully cooked with a side of mixed vegetables. They do half portions of most dishes for kids. The chocolate brownie desert and cheesecake were delicious too.
