Galway - Cafes
It’s hard to find cafés in the countryside and in the smaller towns, let alone good ones. It’s completely different in the larger cities, especially in Galway, where the café latte trend has arrived.
On weekends Java’s is the place to be for a late breakfast along with the morning papers or indeed to recover after a shopping spree. On the menu are hot chicken sandwich, the double-decker Javanormous and the Furbo Special – a bagel filled with pesto, sun dried tomatoes, and cream cheese.
A small popular place that fills up quickly. Mocha Beans is very particular about their coffee, and roast it themselves.
Order a pint of Guinness, grab a stool and enjoy. Tigh Neachtain is probably the most famous music pub in Galway. The performances can go on for hours, almost like a relay race between the musicians.
Cottage Bar is Tigh Neachtain’s main competitor, offering younger, and possibly better, musicians.
Sweet little pub with good live music. Sundays are best, that’s when the master of the tin whistle, Seán Ryan, comes by with his flute.
