Nice bar located just off Eyre square. We popped in for a drink one Saturday night as it was right beside the hotel we were staying in. Good music and atmosphere. Drinks weren't too expensive and the staff were friendly. Their Facebook like counter behind the bar actually updates if you like their page which we found quite entertaining. Seemed... More

Came here with a friend for a bite to eat! Didn't have much time and weren't sure if we had to go to the staff at the bar and order as we had been waiting awhile. Went to the bar to order and ordered drinks. Food arrived in a timely fashion but had to wait for cutlery. We were then... More

Three of us arrived in town and decided to do some shopping and get a bite to eat. This place was recommended and we enjoyed it. Very good variety, quick in meal preparation and good quality food. When you walk in it does not appear to have many tables but the place is very deep and has tons of tables... More

Last night, after graduating from college with my friends from class, I decided I wanted to go to what I thought was one of my favorite pubs in Galway; An Pucan. I arrived there all excited with my 2 friends to meet all of the people from my class and celebrate this extremely proud day of our lives together. Upon... More

I really wish I could write a good review about this establishment, I really do, as the inside of the pub is quite large so it would be great for big crowds but because I have visited this pub on a lot of occasions and on far too many of those occasions a friend of mine or myself have been...

In pucan you can have great time. When you are in Galway that's must night out or just a drink or some food. Lovely cocktail's. Friendly staff. However sometimes is way too loud,you have to literally scream because of too loud music.

Went for dinner and a few drinks with my wife and daughter - food was great, decent sized portions and good value for money. A special mention of the chowder is deserved - one of the best chowders I have eaten, filled with plenty of fish and only one piece of carrot & celery!! The service was exceptional and we... More

Lovely Bar - stopped by for a pint and sat outside in the beer garden under the awning while it rained. It was still very pretty and I would have loved to been able to check it out during a summer night. Hopefully, in the future!

We offer an exceptional Food Menu for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. Whether you are a tourist looking to experience an Irish Breakfast or some great fresh seafood or a local looking for fantastic lunch time value, we have it all. The large menu in An Pucan does not mean a sacrifice in quality so you will not be disappointed.

Sports is our passion: Rugby, Soccer, GAA, NFL, Golf, MMA, Ice Hockey, Cricket, Snooker, Sailing, Europeans, Olympics, anything and we mean anything tickles our fancy! We have two large drop down projector screens, and 5 plasmas throughout the venue so no matter where in An Pucan you are standing or sitting we have you covered.
