Hi Ted, Will you be staying in Galway city or travelling to Connemara or the Aran Islands? There are lots of good places for music and a pint in Galway city; try: Tig Coili, An Púcán or Tigh Fox. Really you just have to wander around the city (it's quite compact) and follow the sound. Hope you have a lovely time in Ireland.
Ted Thanks Maria! We’re staying at the Jury’s, so yes, we are in city...maybe having a coach take us up north one day & down south another...
