Opening Hours

We always extend a warm welcome!

Located in the heart of Eyre Square and part of the historic fabric of Galway City since 1850, The Skeff Late Bar & Kitchen is an entertainment institution. We are part of your night out in Galway. There’s no question that we don’t take this responsibility seriously and have developed a broad product range to reflect the eclectic mix of our customer-base.

Boasting six bars over five floors, the décor reflects The Skeff’s history but also brings it to life in the 21st century. With just under 10,000 square feet we are the largest bar in Galway city centre.

We maximise the use of space by creating distinct areas namely, The Gin Palour in the door to the left , The Skeff Kitchen on Floor four, our sports bar with our 10-foot screen on floor three with plans to add in a 50-gold medal winning gins including a selection a Irish gins live music on floor two and our award winning 1852 Whiskey Bar on floor one.

As a city centre bar we ensure that we espouse all things Galway. We have tribal pride and celebrate with Connacht Rugby, our county football and hurling teams and our people. We are part of the Galway story, which reflects in our social media storytelling.

For the whiskey palate we have our award winning Whiskey Bar 1852, our dedicated whiskey bar boasting over 200 whiskeys; for the ladies we have a great cocktails menu ; for sports fanatics we are always match-ready with a full sports listing on our nine HD screens; for those who are celebrating a special occasion The Skeff is a favourite for parties; meanwhile if you are a family or couple looking for great food you get to enjoy homemade food at The Skeff – we use local produce, cook favourite homemade dishes that we serve from Noon daily,

With plenty of character, a huge selection of drinks for every taste, a delicious food menu, comfortable yet cozy social distanced tables and a wonderful atmosphere The Skeff truly is The ‘Meeting Place’ of Galway City!

We look forward to welcoming you.
