O Connell's Bar Galway

A Piece Of Galway History

 OConnells-Logo-green

 

O'Connells-Bar-1-(1)-webWe are a traditional-style pub with tons of energy and a warm inviting atmosphere. O’Connell’s was once a grocery and small bar but has been solely a pub since the 1970’s. The décor is truly stunning with most of our original fixtures and fittings still intact. These include tiled floors, antique lighting, stained glass windows, solid wooden seating plus an amazing pressed tin ornate ceiling in our front bar.
 
Inside our historic walls you will find a wide selection of craft beers, wines and premium spirits from all around the world. We are well known for our whiskey and Gin portfolios, which boast a growing collection of over 110 gins and 120 whiskies.
 
We are very proud to have one of Galway’s best beer gardens. This hidden gem consists of two outside bars, an old Victorian street known as Gin Lane. The garden has plenty of seating is partially covered and heated so even in winter you can at least pretend Ireland has a warm climate!
 
Every Thursday – Saturday also sees local heroes ‘The Dough Bros’ serve their amazing wood fired pizzas and resident DJ’s provide the soundtrack to your weekend.

O’Connell’s 1862 APA

An exciting project that we have recently completed is the launch of our very own craft beer called O’Connell’s 1862 APA.

 

This is an exclusive collaboration with the guys from The White Hag Brewery and you wont find it anywhere else in the world.

 
‘Something struck us as we planned this beer. How can one bar pack in so much heritage and still remain so relevant? Founded in 1862 you can literally taste the atmosphere in O’Connell’s. The result is a modern take on a classic style.
An American Pale Ale brimming with peaches, citrus, orange peel and passion fruit with a soft bitter finish.’

 

Sport At O’Connell’s

We Love Sport

We are sport mad at O’Connell’s. We love it all – especially Rugby. We have four ‘big screen’ televisions and one ‘outside-in’ smoking area so you can enjoy all the action no matter where you are. We also show all Champions League,  major Golf Championships, GAA and a whole lot more.

P.S. If Connacht are playing at home at the Sportsground then there is only one place for pre and post match scoops – and that’s with us here at O’Connell’s. The atmosphere is always electric and the craic is always top notch.

Dough Bros

 

Every Thursday – Saturday sees local heroes ‘The Dough Bros’ serve their amazing wood fired pizza in our Beer Garden.

 

Their pizza crusts may be super thin, but the Dough Bros appreciation and respect for Italian culture is a thousand kisses deep.

 
Eugene and Ronan Greaney – The Dough Bros – aren’t just fan boys of the food and the football of Italy: they are curators and upholders of a tradition, of food and the art of eating and living, that respects the past, whilst reanimating it for both the present and the future. Superficially what the Dough Bros do is simple – they make pizza – but they make pizzas in the same way that their beloved Andrea Pirlo played soccer. Pirlo played with invention, imagination, wit and originality. He was peerless in his domain in the same way that Dough Bros are peerless: you can try to copy what they do, but you will fail, because only they can so what they do. They are unique.
