Nestled in the heart of Galway City’s main shopping thoroughfare, stands the historic building that is Garavan’s Bar. An architectural treasure, its current physical footprint dates back to the fortified Galway of 1650.
Embedded as this building is into the very fabric of Galway city, it is little surprise that it has been home to three generations of Garavan’s, one of the oldest trading families on William Street. Established by Charles Garavan in 1937, it was originally a Spirit Grocery, which combined a public house with a grocery shop.
Irish Whiskey has been synonymous with Garavan’s Bar since its inception over 80 years ago. They offer an extensive collection of delicious (and some rare) whiskeys, one of the largest in Galway. Sourced from all over the world.
