Restaurant by day and lively bar by night, the Cellar has been a local favorite since the 1970s. During the day, enjoy a hearty and delicious meal from the varied a la carte menu, or indulge in the Cellar's legendary all-day breakfast instead. The bar offers an excellent variety of libations as well, with everything from beer and wine, to prosecco and cocktails. While the Cellar's food and drink selection is reason enough for its fame, the bar also features nightly entertainment, including cover bands, original singer-songwriters, DJs, stand-up comedy and more. Trad music is showcased every Sunday. Stop by the Cellar with family during the day for a delicious meal and with friends at night for a rollicking good time.

Colloquially known as the "Skeff", this is pub reflects the Irish tradition. The wooden interior and traditional decor contribute to the comfortable atmosphere. With six bar areas on different levels, The Skeff Bar is a great place to meet friends and enjoy a drink.

Formerly an old smokehouse, this restored stone building is one of the coziest places to relax during the Galway winter. Nimmo's features creatively prepared fish and shellfish. The space also serves as a wine bar. In the summer, the view from the windows allows you to watch sunsets over the river. Beyond the stone-clad exterior and up the stairs is a lovely dining area with local artwork on display. At night the stars shine through the skylight, adding to the romantic atmosphere.
This little cafe specializes in healthy yet yummy lunchtime food, featuring tasty, generous sandwiches and salads. The emphasis is on focaccia rather than a fry-up, but you can indulge yourself with the homemade desserts offered. The decor is somewhat baroque, with the exception of the huge black and white photograph of an Italian train station. Anton Cafe fills up quickly for lunch. So sneak in early to be sure of getting a table.
