The atmosphere was a classy pub with great fresh food. We loved this place. We usually try hard to try different places wherever we go, but we were in Galway two weeks and ate there twice.

I got turkey and ham and it was lovely! Such a comforting meal with all the trimmings. Upstairs is a nice romantic place for a couple to eat in the evening. However the service was ridiculously slow.
