    All pubs are closed and craic is cancelled. So is live music.

    There are restaurants which may have a table for you.

    Try Sliders in Quay Street, or the Stock Exchange in Shop St.

    I don't know if it's a group of 20 or girls in their 20's . Music is stopped most places due to covid but most pubs are open. If you are in your 20's the super pubs are open

    The Front Door or the Dail bar are probably what you're looking for.

    Most pubs in the city are back open and will serve you a plate of something with your pints.

    The Dail is booked out, but good call.

    Thanks for that, doesn't mean you have to crawl under a rock and hide.
    Take the usual precautions we've been doing for the last few months and it will be safe enough, life goes on.

    Just a group of 4 girls down for the weekend, first time in Galway. Not looking to go on the lash, more a few drinks and a bite in a nice fun place.

    Pre Covid, Carrols was definitely accordions. Taylors too, sometimes.

    Very few 20-something places around, really.

    Caprice is gorgeous for a girl's dinner and drinks, been there loads with friends. Definitely call to book ahead but I really recommend it. Dela or 56 Central are good too

    Handsome Burger, Caribou, Seven, Buddha Bar/Asian Tea House (assuming it's open), Dough Bros.

    Is that the place over Easons that changes its name every month?

    Doh, hate when you miss one like that. Another fine mess.

    The girls hit Hyde and 1520 and sampled An Pucán and McGettigan's during the day, no complaints so far.

    They must have been very hungry.

    Fine girls lol. Nah there on their 3rd day today, but yeah they know how to spend money alright.
    The food thing in pubs is probably like Dublin, buy a portion of chicken wings and chips and your sorted, leave half behind, off to the next spot.
    Between 4 it doesn't break the bank. Haven't heard how things are being policed in Galway yet.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 145 ✭✭ LostDuck


    Lovely. How long more are they around? So the rest of us know to keep a wide berth.

    They had a good time, if a bit quite. Decided to leave a day early as something came up back home.

    Hyde, Seven (Not the food), and Pucán get a nod, so thanks for the tips.

    Ok Duckie, safe to come out now.

    They're very welcome back to visit once the covid is gone.

    Phew.

    Presumably this is the same group of girls in their 20s from Dublin that did the round of the Cork City pubs a few weeks ago.

    I hope they heed the advice today that "it is now really important that people in Dublin keep their social contacts as low as possible" (Dr Ronan Glynn).

    Am I understanding this correctly? In Dublin a group of 4 can order one portion of wings and chips along with drinks for all 4?

    Yes same group, not going out of the country, staying home this year.
    One of the group works in a Dublin Hospital and they are all front line in one way or another.

    Dublin numbers were crap today.

    Being a front line worker then they should know better, for a few weeks we have been asked to keep our contacts low. Going on a pub crawl during a pandemic in multiple cities is idiotic to say the least. Tell them to grow up and have some cop on.

    These are the people that are making it hard for other pubs to open and keeping people out of jobs.
