Crapped place but great for a pint or two of local beers. Impressive Scotch selection if you are looking for something different then Irish whiskey

I stopped here on a whim as I was walking back to my B&B. This tiny pub was packed with friendly people and a super helpful staff. The crowd was completely mixed, having everything from people dancing to the live music, to a woman knitting in the corner! I ended up talking to everyone from the bartenders to other groups...

This bar was so cool! I thought it was a middle eastern bar from the colors outside, but it was in fact this really old multi-room Irish bar. It was such a cool atmosphere. This awesome Irish band played just sitting around a small corner table drinking Guinness.

I love heading to Neachtains - great staff and great ambience. You can always strike up a conversation with some of the random characters bobbing around the city. They will kick you out if you're in a big group and being a little too boisterous however - maybe not the worst thing!

Tigh Neachtains, what's not to love? It's like going back in time while still being in a modern area. It's the perfect little country style pub that's situated in the city. A great spot for anyone to go to especially on a warm sunny day, where you can sit outside and soak up the sun while watching the world go... More

Great atmosphere, great crowd, good Guiness, and on a sunny day be early to grab one of the few outside tables on the side street, not one on the main drag.

If you enjoy a beer or whisky, or a cup of coffee Tigh Neachtains is a must visit. The ambiance and character of this place for local and tourist alike is simply wonderful and not to be missed. This is a real traditional old Irish pub that did not come out of a 40 foot container. We called in on... More

You'll be sure to find the good Irish craic here. Very quaint and old Irish pub with different rooms that add to the flair of the place. Great spot for a pint or a Jameson. Well worth it!

This wonderfull pub is in the city centre and I find its atmosphere absolutely unique. If you start looking around all over the walls, you will discover so many treasures, antiques, paintings, posters and books that will capture your attention. I love it. The staff is amazing, everyone very kind and fast. Best pub in Galway!
