Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Reviewed 28 July 2022 via mobile

I regularly visit Kelly's. For breakfast I would highly recommend the fluffy pancakes with bacon. Or the generous full breakfast. I love that you get a good pot of tea with your breakfast. For lunch, the cajun chicken panini is top of my list without...a doubt. It is served with a generous portion of chips. So be warned, you will be full for the day!!! A great selection of cocktails are available at night. My partner and I love nothing more than to spend an evening here and to order a pizza and chips (real authentic style) with a bottle of the nicest pinot grigio. The staff are so lovely and welcoming. Especially Abbie and Katie. Keep up the fantastic service and food.More

The staff from this restaurant were excellent from how they greet guests to how they cater for their customers! The food was the one of few places in Galway area that I could honestly say I would love to go back to, and have! Most...restaurants offer similar food but not as well done as this and for much higher prices! This place offered great food with competitive prices without being greedy. Well worth the try if you’re passing through!More

Giant fluffy pancakes made the girls happiest on earth. Generous medium breakfast was plenty for me, but hubby got the Full Irish which looked amazing. Dinner we went for simple pizzas and burgers, pizzas were crisp, saucy and floaty, burgers were generous and juicy with...crunchy fries. We had the churros for dessert and a brownie and they were inspired.More

Visited with 3 adults and 2 kids. Food was so tasty - everyone enjoyed their meal fully. Friendly staff and comfortable seating. The collection of clocks on the walls were a great source of amusement and debate! We will be back!

We had a great meal here. The food was just like a home cooked meal - very hearty and filling. The staff were very friendly and quite quick to clear the table. Everything on the menu looked delicious, but would recommend the stew. We found...this a great place when we were craving a home cooked meal.More

Called into Kelly’s for some food on our way to our campsite in July. Staff are super friendly and efficient. Great kids menu and great specials. My 2 hungry boys were quiet whilst eating which is always a good sign! My husband had the special...which he thoroughly enjoyed and I had the goats cheese panini. OMG. I nearly died and went to heaven! Delicious! I was talking to one of the chefs, Therese I think her name was.....she couldn’t have done enough for me when we bonded over our love of goats cheese! She gave me a sample of their own chutney that comes with the goats cheese salad. I’m dreaming about it since! We had our dog outside in our jeep and they even gave us a bowl of water for her. So so thoughtful. Have to give this place a 10 out of 10 for everything. Cleanliness, friendliness and overall ambiance. You’d be mad not to give it a try!More

Eat here twice (breakfast and dinner) while on holidays in the area. Very nice brekkie and service is friendly and efficient. Dinner was alright ... to be honest I found it basic pun grub and my steak was over cooked and a bit greasy! Maybe...it was just a bad day!More

We were recommended to visit Kelly’s by our B&B host as a great place to eat. This was also supported by the good reviews this summer on Trip Advisor. We got a great welcome by all the staff on arrival and the atmosphere was relaxed...and friendly. Good beer is a sign of a good bar and they were great. The Irish stew was really special and tasty, and was very enjoyable. Well done Kelly’s for a great evening out.More
