The Dail Bar

Resplendent with abundant window boxes spilling over pink and black paintwork, this handsome traditional pub in Galway occupies a prominent corner position on Middle Street and Cross Street and proudly proclaims its establishment in 1759 beneath an elegant round clock.


In common ownership with Brasserie on the Corner, The Front Door, and Tom Sheridan’s Bar & Restaurant this fine city centre establishment is a middle-of-the road bar with a strong food component.


Although it can get very lively at night, during the daytime it is a welcoming place with open fires and an ambience that should please all age groups. Like its sister establishments, it bears the hallmark of competent, customer-oriented management, with friendly staff and good standards of hygiene.


Menus - featuring soups, sandwiches, salads, pastas, roasts, burgers, vegetarian dishes and daily specials to include fish - offer popular fare, mainly international in tone but also including some traditional dishes, like seafood chowder and beef & Guinness stew. Prices are moderate, with most main course prices ranging between about €10 and €13.


While not adventurous, cooking is above the standard normally expected in pubs, and includes plenty of vegetarian and gluten free options.


A short wine lists offer reasonably priced wines by the glass, and bottles under €20.


TV sport and live music are central to this, and the other pubs in the group.

Seats 80. Open for food daily, 12-9.30pm. House wine €18.95. Children welcome. MasterCard, Visa. abbreviations
