The Dáil Bar
The Dáil Bar, located at the junction of Cross Street and Middle Street is a focal point for the locals and tourists of Galway to gather over a drink and discuss the day’s events, hence the literal meaning of The Dáil.... “ a meeting place”
Over the years, the building has been a family home, a toy shop and is now a licensed premise. The Dáil Bar is just around the corner from some of Galway’s real treasures. Charlie Byrne’s on Middle St, Ireland’s No.1 book shop and Thomas Dillon Jewelers on Quay St, home of The Claddagh ring.
The Dáil Bar is also one of Galway’s most renowned sports bars showing all of the latest sporting action and are proud sponsor of Connacht Rugby. During your visit we highly recommend that you talk to the staff about sampling some of the many Irish Whiskeys they have on offer. Their selection includes Blended, Grain, Malt and Pot Stilled Irish whiskeys. The resident whiskey ambassador, John O,Connor, is always happy talk about the story behind each of the whiskeys and suggest the perfect taster option to suit your personal taste. House favourites include Yellow Spot and the Midleton Barry Crockett Single pot stilled whiskey.
If you enjoy relaxing by blazing fire, listening to great live music or simply want to dance the night away till the early hours, The Dáil Bar is the place to be.
