      Authentic traditional & welcoming pub with great pizza!

      If you are looking for an authentic Irish pub experience then head to Monroes pub in Galway. It is situated at the bottom of Dominic Street and has a whitewashed exterior. Monroes serves a tasty pint of Guinness and if you go there mid-week you are guaranteed to hear some traditional Irish music. You may even be tempted to try out the Ceili dancing. There are some real professionals on the dance floor, but everyone is made to feel welcome here. Monroes also has a pizza place next door (accessible through the pub). You can order your pizza and then eat it in the pub. The garlic bread is to die for and is making my mouth water at the thoughts of it!

      Although Monroes attracts tourists it also has regular customers, which is a testament to the delicious pizzas, friendly staff and homely atmosphere. You won't regret going out of your way for the 'Monroe' experience!!!

        A great music pub with atmosphere to spare! This is located at one end of Dominick Street, which is Galway’s main music street. There are a number of great music pubs here and Munroe’s Tavern is one of the better ones among a good group. The pub has a Sunday ‘lock-in’ like most Irish pubs these days. This means that between the hours of 12 noon and 2 p.m. the pub has to close. In practice the pubs simply lock its doors barring newcomers between these hours and locking-in the customers. Also, the bar is closed but in true Irish tradition you can buy a drink to have while you wait for the bar to re-open. During the Gaelic football and hurling season there is a large screen TV to watch the games on Sunday afternoons. The evening’s host many great bands that comprise touring as well as local musicians. These are groups that play all styles of music and not just traditional Irish music. There is a ‘session’ on Sunday afternoons where usually great local musicians play traditional music together although visitors are made welcome to join in the fun. And fun it is regardless the type of music that you usually play or like to listen to. This is a great pub that makes a point to welcome visitors and is a ‘must visit’ bar if you ever find yourself in this part of Ireland. You can check them out on their website at www.munroestavern.net. bigdoug tip =========== Don’t forget to check the other pubs in Dominick Street also, search out The Quays bar in Quay Street while you’re in Galway. If you spend a week in Galway, then people will acknowledge you in the street like old friends.
