Lovely place for lunch or just a pint. The fish and chips were delicious. My hamburger was huge and yummy. My husband's Guinness beef stew was massive in size and fantastic. We also enjoyed a side salad. You should eat there!

Fish and Chips was tried almost everywhere we went - they had very nice fish and chips and well made. Wonderful pup in the center of town where everyone is friendly (the Irish way) and the food was wonderful and reasonably priced. Can't go wrong - I became addicted to Irish cider at this pup and it served me. Service was superior and you neevr felt hurried and rushed - they seemingly could care less about turnover.

We stopped to dine in Oughterard en route back from exploring the atmospheric landscape of Connemara and returning to our Galway city base. There were several
options on the main street but we chose Powers pub-restaurant and immediately knew we’d struck gold. Staff hugely friendly, atmosphere unpretentiously relaxed, but food really excellent. In a way the best meal of our 5 day trip if you’re into sheer pleasantness of manner in an ambience and not just a good menu. The boss even gave us a clue how to pronounce Oughterard in Irish. One wanted to go back next day to repeat the experience but by then we were driving back to Dublin airport and home. We definitely recommend Powers.

What a beautiful bar, so bright, so big and great atmosphere. The food was beautiful and the staff were friendly. The place was rocking with locals and tourists. So happy that it was a necessary stop for us or we wouldn't have discovered this little gem. What a great attraction would highly recommend it.
