    The Quay: Find Local Music

    by AKtravelers Written Dec 9, 2003

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In Galway, don't miss a chance to enjoy a pint or two and take in the local music scene. The place we went on both nights we were there was the Quay. This place has a small front room tapping Guinness and Murphy's that ends in a dorrway by the corner. Walk through there and the place opens up! Now you're in a cathedral like auditorium, with a band playing on a small stage above a long bar. You'll find people from all over the world drinking pints and moving to the sounds of traditional Irish music or local rock. Have fun!

    Roisin Dubh: Roisin Dubh

    by molough Written Nov 14, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We were here late at night. I was expecting a typical pub but I would definitely classify Roisin Dubh as a club. There was dancing everywhere and a ton of alcohol consumption. Not sure if there is dancing in the earlier hours. But either way, we had a blast. Some bartenders from Tigh Coili took us here and showed us a really great time. If you want to dance and it's late at night (like 3 AM), go to Roisin Dubh.

    Dress Code: Whatever you want

    King's Head Pub: King's Head Pub

    We had a splendid time at King's Head Pub! We went here two nights. The first night it was a bit early so it wasn't all that busy. We had a pleasant pint and headed out. But the second night we went there, it was completely packed. There was a really great band playing. I wish I could remember the name. But the atmosphere was great. Lots of merriment and music. I think they have live music most nights so if you like live music and a great crowd, head to King's Head.

    Galway: Tigh Coili

    by molough Updated Nov 14, 2007

    Tigh Coili is my favorite pub in Galway! The people and atmosphere at Tigh Coili are delightfully refreshing. We made fast freinds with the bartenders who showed us around Galway the following night. (Say hi from Chicago Morgan to Dave the bartender if you go here!) Everyone is very friendly and inviting. There was traditional Irish music playing the first night we went there. A group of about 12 musicians. It was the best place I'd been yet to hear Irish music. It's right in the heart of Galway, too. Right along the pedestrian streets. You can't miss it.

    Dress Code: Whatever you want. Casual or cute. It all works.

    Very friendly bartenders, live traditional Irish music and fun people! We loved this place --- stayed to closing. Good variety of ages, nationalities, etc. Met people from the U.S., Ireland, Italy and France the night we were there. Good music, traditional and nontraditional Irish. Loved it!

    Dress Code: Casual.

    Galway: Galway or Limerick???

    by ConorB Updated Nov 21, 2010

    Galway v Limerick??? Galway without a doubt... it has everything going for it. I went to College there for three years & it's probably the best location in Ireland for a hectic social life. To be honest, you cannot go wrong in the City of the Tribes!

    Enjoy,

    C
