What a great spot to stop in and have some fish and chips while traveling through! Crispy, serving size was nice and the customer service was great! My wife asked about some wine and they even brought her a sample before she decided. The Guinness was great as usual. Kids menu was spot on. We inquired about the kids drink, Mi Wadi for my son and the young lady told us how to find it in the stores. This was a great thing because it was something special for my son and made his trip even better! This was over all a great time for me an my family. Glad we stopped in!

Each summer we come back to Galway and each year we make a pilgrimage to Tigh Giblin. We have been fortunate the last few years to get to know the head chef Ann Marie. She is a class act and when she heard we were in the restaurant made a special visit to our table. She made some recommendations, which of course we followed. Her spicy pork burger, BBB burger (beef, black pudding, and bacon) were amazing! Her ability to combine flavors is truly astounding! We also started with some fresh local periwinkles, Asian duck wings, and fresh local calamari. Pair that with a great pint of Guinness and some delicious Irish craft beers and you have the amazing meal we ate. Don’t forget the desert! The Irish Mess and homemade ice cream are a perfect finish!

We will definitely be back before we head home and of course, next year!

This place personified Ireland for us. It was exactly the environment we pictured before hopping the big pond. Went there twice and heard live music from two different groups of friends and ate delicious food! Couldn't have asked for a better first trip to Ireland where we experienced this lovely establishment. Staff is so friendly and helpful and it never got rowdy! Will definitely go back when we get back to Ireland!

Stopped for dinner on a Sunday. My young kids loved the light group playing local music, they drummed along the whole time with spoons. Dinner was good to. Had a cold seafood appetizer that we really enjoyed and the bangers and mash were tasty too. Nice stop for dinner.
