As one of the largest bars and restaurants, centrally situated in the locale, Gill’s is an ideal place to spend a few hours relaxing during a visit to the medieval capital of East Galway. The spacious beer garden at Gill's makes a beautiful backdrop for enjoying a beverage or some food. There is live traditional Irish music every Monday night and pop/folk on Saturdays.
Landmarks such as the only remaining archway, known as the North Gate, St. Mary’s Collegiate Church (which is now the Athenry Heritage Centre), the restored Castle of St. John’s Court and the 800-year-old Dominican Priory ruin are all just a short walk from Gill’s Bar and Restaurant on Old Church Street. The train station and bus stop is also only a few minutes’ walk away.
You are encouraged to park in the outer car parks and enjoy a short leisurely stroll down the small medieval streets of the town.
Gill’s caters for everything, from an intimate dinner to large family celebration, civil ceremony, banquet or even group tour. Menus include options from land and sea, and Sundays are guaranteed to include a traditional roast lunch. The bar contains a selection of fine wines, beers, and spirits, and there are cocktail creations at the weekends.
Gill’s strives to provide quality food and great value in the heart of medieval Athenry.
