The King's Head

The Kings Head is a Pub, Restaurant & Live Venue over 3 floors and is located in the heart of the Latin Quarter

The building itself is over 800 years old and gets its name from its historic links to the execution of King Charles 1st in 1649. The 400 year old Fireplace, medieval windows and walls give it a unique atmosphere and make it a true piece of living history.

History aside, this family run Pub, is renowned for its entertainment.  The Main Stage on the ground floor features Free Live Music every night of the week. It has played host to international acts such as Manic Street Preachers and The Riptide Movement and regularly hosts Ireland's best cover bands such as Megabeat and Pyramid. Every Wednesday features Trad at the Head, a fantastic traditional Irish Group with Irish Dancers.

The Ruby Room on the top floor is a pocket sized venue for music and is well known for its lunchtime comedy with David O' Doherty and Tommy Tiernan as regular guests. The Kings Head has been a Venue for Galway International Arts Festival for over 20 years and also features during Cuirt International Festival of Literature as well as Galway Comedy Festival.

The Kings Head serves food from 11am until 10pm every day. A proud member of Good Food Ireland, the Menu features rustic Irish Cuisine with fresh local seasonal ingredients. Some specialities include Best of Irish Platter, Galway Hooker Fish and Chips and steamed Mussels. In other words, Pub Food only better!

The Chop House which opened in July 2015 has added another dimension with its cozy, relaxed vibe and specialises in local seafood and steaks.

With Late Bars every weekend, the Kings Head has built a reputation for a friendly welcome, great Cocktails and Craft Beers. It now also  boasts a fantastic selection of Whiskeys from the newly opened Irish Whiskey Bar and, where better to savour your favourite, than in the historic surroundings of The  Kings Head.
