For nearly 400 years, The Quays Bar has been providing Galwegians and visitors alike with great food and drink as well as live music. This historic establishment is located in the heart of Galway City.

Located in the vibrant Latin Quarter, The Quays is one of Galway City’s most famous and historic drinking establishments. For nearly 400 years The Quays has catered to both Galwegians and visitors. It offers a carvery lunch and night-time a la carte dinner.

On the ground floor there is a myriad of sections in split-level design featuring the Horsebox, the Mezzanine, the Restaurant and the Library. Wandering through the bars, visitors will notice the abundance of church artefacts: arches and a stained glass window. The most popular bar for regular local customers is ‘The Old Bar’ where there is traditional music most evenings.

The upstairs Music Hall is set in the traditional vein on a split-level design. A huge church organ forms a spectacular backdrop to the stage. There is also an authentic railway footbridge that has been restored and now overlooks the stage in a most resplendent manner.
