The Louis Fitzgerald Group was awarded best pub and hotel group in Ireland 2019.
Live Music Venue of the Year 2017 & Best Music Pub 2018 & 2019
Located in the city centre of Galway’s vibrant ‘Latin Quarter’ The Quays, Galway is one of Galway’s most famous and historic drinking establishments. For close on 400 years The Quays has catered to both Galwegians and visitors to our city.
Glor Tire (a talent competition for Country & Western singers) is filmed by Irish TV station TG4 in our Music Hall. Our Music Hall is open 7 nights a week in summer time featuring both local and international bands.
We look forward to bringing an A La Carte menu to The Quays in 2022! We will be updating you in the coming months with our exciting new plans.
At the moment we are serving drinks only and it is on a walk in basis. Hope to see you soon.

Fun In Galway The Quay Galway what's not to like fantastic venue. Excellent service staff and atmosphere live bands late bar great DJ. Just as enjoyable afternoon evening or late night. Very well run and very very organised a must if visiting Galway.
Great atmosphere Lovely place to stay and visit during lockdown. Covid restrictions are well managed. There's an option of outdoor and indoor seating. Book in advance where you can. Pizzas are delicious but food options are limited if you are looking for something different. Best place to go for atmosphere in current climate.
Great atmosphere I was just thinking about this place... I was there just over a year ago (I said September but it was actually July) with a mate when we did a little motorbike tour. We popped in for a pint after we'd had dinner... what a great atmosphere. Such a fun, happy place - music, dancing and generally good spirits. It made a real impression on me in what was my first visit to the Republic of Ireland, and in a way highlighted a couple of very nice things about Ireland - an appreciation of live music and a desire to get together and have a nice time. I hope The Quays has got through Covid-19 / lockdown etc OK.
GREAT NIGHT OF FOOD AND MUSIC Our Ireland trip was great. For me Galway was my favorite City and Quays was my favorite place. We walked from The Parke House Hotel (great hotel) to the latin Quarter for a qucik pint and to experience the medevile flare of the City. We went on with the intention of going to Quay Street Kitchen but when we reached the Pub and heard the music we decided this was the right place to enjoy the evening. We needed to wait 15 minutes for a table to open up so we went to the bar to order a drink. As we ordered we were immediately identified as Americans and a few locals struck up a conversation with us. We were enjoying ourselves so much with our new friends we were almost sad when we were told our table was ready; but we were also hungry. The soup was excellent, the salmon fresh and delicous, the lamb was tender and incredibly tasty, and the Bacon and cabbage was wonderful. On top of thta we stayed long enough that we heard 2 different performers, and both acts were outstanding. All in all it was a wonderful night in a great pub in a great City.
Drinks Went in with a few drinks, busy spot, live music, no pint bottlers of cider which is a huge disadvantage, good a few drinks not any longer than 2 hours
