Description: The Dail Bar and Restaurant has already become a firm favourite to both Galway residents and visitors alike with its stunning decor that is both impressive and comfortable at the same time evoking a relaxed warm atmosphere that just draws you in like your favourite local. Situated on the intersection of Middle Street and Cross St right in the heart of the city it really is a beautiful bar to visit The Dail is decorated in a wonderfully traditional manner with beautifully carved oak bars, feature fireplaces ,stunning staircases and many a cosy corner to while away an evening. The downstairs bar has a warm inviting local pub feel where you can relax and enjoy your favourite drink in a comfortable environment, chat to friends, and get to know the friendly bartender or just absorb the atmosphere and many hidden features that the bar has to find!The Dail is also a restaurant serving top class food at Pocket friendly prices all day everyday. The varied and enticing menu really does go above and beyond a traditional pub menu. The Bar is open late 7 nights a week from 11:00am to 2:00am

My wife and I had a lovely dinner at the Dail Bar in Galway. The place has a great ambiance--low lights, cozy feeling, wonderfully friendly staff, and excellent food. We really enjoyed the potato and leek soup and the fish and chips, both of which were very generous portions. There is a great selection of beer and ale on tap. It was a lovely, even romantic, setting in a neighborhood pub that locals enjoy. It's a great taste of Galway off the main streets and a place that should not be missed.

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.

This was the first (of many!) pubs and bars we visited on a long weekend break. Whilst each one had its own unique plus points, the Dail could not be beaten for 'typical Irish decor, a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere, plus good honest 'pub grub'. If you only visit one pub in Galway, make it this one!
