Best Pub in Galway. We loved this Pub, the food was great, service excellent and such a good vibe. We watched some football here with the locals and loved it, but be warned it is very popular so get there early

Great place to eat and drink. Bar staff and waitresses didn't stop. Place was bouncing all weekend. The 2for1 drinks offer was a massive plus. Definitely call again when in Gallway.

we stopped in for lunch, during a soccer game, a special of a burger and a pint for E 10 was offered. It was crazy noisy and crowded but very lively with the younger set. The waitstaff was very busy the day we were there.

By the way the staff act in there it is nearly believable that they're paid to be rude. Couldn't believe it, from the bouncer on the door to the waiter to the barman. Food only OK, drinks overpriced (even by irish standards) too many 18...More

We had such a fun dinner here! Our waitress Neve was so helpful and attentive. She was really fun too! The Irish music was really good. It wasn't so loud that you couldn't talk. The food was good as were the spirits!

Good food, live music, amazing selection of whiskeys and gins. Go for one of the taster platters of Irish whiskey.

Went here on Friday night with three friends. The rest of the city was pretty quiet due to exams, but An Púcán was packed. Brilliant smoking area. Drink prices are reasonable.

Great selection of Irish whisky, many of which I didn't see at other pubs. Very friendly and helpful staff.
