Salthill Pubs & Restaurants

O'Connors Famous Bar

Established 1845, The present owners are third generation of O'Connors   O'Connor's "famous" Pub in Salthill bills itself as the first singing pub in Ireland. The veracity of the "famous" tag and the claim to be Ireland's first singing pub is open to debate but  it would probably easily win the title of the most decorated pub in Ireland. On entering O'Connors you will be astounded by the the number of articles hanging from every possible inch of space. Old Gaslights, farm implements, crockery, photos, weighing scales and a near life size statue of John Wayne (in The Quiet man) are scattered throughout the Pub. It is possible to get totally disorientated in here and you can start to wonder what year it is as you are transported to years gone by. As you can imagine O'Connors is a tourists dream and the clientele reflects this especially during the summer when it can be overun by American tourists. However even the most cynical of Galwegians would admit that a visit to O'Connors is a worthwhile experience, if even just to have a quick pint and bang your head on a low hanging lamp. Live music can be heard many nights and a singalong comprising most of the Pub  is not out of the question. Situated on the main Salthill throughfare, this bar evokes a 'cottage' ambiance, with large open heart fires and a large amount of comfortable seating and space.

The Cottage Bar

A popular student haunt, this pub is housed in one of Galways oldest buildings and features an impressive old stone hearth, which provides an enormous fire in Wintertime. A jukebox, TV room and pool room supply all the additional entertainment for its young clientèle.

Lonergan's Bar

This seafront bar is situated on the promenade in Salthill. Although this area can be fairly quiet in winter, there is always a crowd in Lonergan's. The bar menu includes good fresh seafood, which can be enjoyed while staring out at the sea. In summer the crowd spills over onto the promenade, and there is always a scramble for the limited seating provided.

Lohans Bar & Off-License

Lohan's Bar & Restaurant in Salthill is well known in Galway for the quality of its food and service. Operated by the Lohan family who bring a wealth of experience to the business.Lohan's opens early with breakfast served from 8am and food right throughout the day until 9pm. The menu concentrates mainly on Traditional Irish dishes such as Guinness & Beef Stew, Bacon & Cabbage and hearty sausages & mashed potato. Other lighter seasonal dishes and seafood are also available although if we have one criticism it is the lack of vegetarian options for those of you so inclined. However it is only a small matter as the food quality, service standards and  reasonable  prices combine to make Lohan's one of the best places in Galway for a meal.The Bar is well stocked with wine and quite a large selection of foreign bottled beer as well as all the usual suspects and with a small seated area looking out on the Salthill Prom, Lohan's is a busy drinking venue on those occasional sunny days.Live music can be heard at the weekends  Lohans deliver the very best in unique and tasty food. Lohans Offers Free WIFI to all its customers. www.lohans.ie

Krcma - Slavic House

Krcma (pronounced Krutch Ma) opened it's doors in 2005. For all you who are wondering, the name translates to English as Pub. As we are not familiar with Slovakian Pubs we can't tell you if it matches up but the owners are Slovakian and the food menu is suitably eastern European. Krcma has carved out a successful niche for itself attracting not only foreigners living in Galway but also curious locals who have grown to like the place. Krcma bills itself as a bar and restaurant with the menu being mostly eastern European. The dishes are hearty and the prices are good value.The Pub itself is big with multiple levels. Many will remember some of the previous pubs that have operated here such as Scruffy Duffy's. There are two pool tables which are becoming more of a rarity these days in Galway Pubs. Large gigs such as reggae and house music nights often take place at Krcma and the size means they can easily  accomodate large crowds.Outside is a nice patio area with a large canopy ideal for outdoor drinking even if it's not that sunny.Don't let the name throw you off, give it a try.

PJ O'Flahertys

An institution for many years, P.J's has changed hands recently but this has only served to make it more popular. This pub offers a great mix of older regulars and younger students all who have come here for a fabled pint of Guinness. There is also an off licence here. With a TV area there is plenty of room to watch major sporting events in comfort without sacrificing any of the atmosphere. So for a quiet pint with a hint of something more go to PJ O'Flahertys!

The Bal Bar

 This pub has retained its traditional qualities over the years, which is one of the reasons why regular visitors return year after year. The Bal is a quiet pub that exudes hospitality; it is hard not to be drawn into a conversation here. There is a good selection of draught beers and spirits, which tends to enhance the banter.  


This is a well-known and popular pub in Salthill which attracts an amicable crowd. It offers al fresco dining and a pint can be savored while enjoying sea views. Inside the décor is comfortable and homely. Kiloran's is a regular haunt of sports fans and sports teams in the area. There is a pool table at the rear where regulars often congregate for a relaxing game or two.

Best home holiday destination 2018

Winner: Galway

“It has to be Galway,” you told us. And so it proved.

Last year, Dingle took pride of place among your favourite home holiday destinations. But for 2018, the west has won, with Galway banking almost double the votes of any other place.

“There’s something about that city,” you said. “The moment I get off the bus, I get this buzz. I've yet to have one bad out night there.”

You hailed Galway’s “great energy” as “a perfect blend between traditional Ireland and modern society”, and called it Ireland’s “culture capital”.

The city is “young, vibrant and distinctly Irish,” readers added, with “heart-warming hustle and bustle” that is “always welcoming at different times of the year.”
