One of the best spots I found to have a proper whisky tasting. The servers were really knowledgable and every flight came with a special envelope containing info on all selections – a very nice touch. Cheers!

Stopped in for a beer. Garavans had a nice atmosphere and quick service. Menu looked inviting. I will definitely visit again if I'm in Galway.

I was drawn in because it seemed relaxed and I was right. Kicked back met some great people and enjoyed good service! I loved the artwork on the menus so much the bartender gave me a menu to keep! Love this place!!

So glad we stopped here to get out of the rain. Small, cosy, friendly and a good pint of Guinness. Locals drink there too

Wide range of whiskeys (although I didn't sample these). Otherwise just a normal pub. A bit cramped where we sat.

We stopped into this bar for a quick coffee and Bailey's while we were visiting the city. Service and drinks were good, and wifi worked well. We sat for a while and enjoyed our drinks.
