The spirit of daring and adventure evoked by Ireland’s celebrated Pirate Queen, Grace O’Malley, has inspired the naming of the latest addition to the historic Skeff Late Bar and Kitchen. The new luxurious cocktail lounge, Grace’s, set in the surrounds of the 17th century landmark building, retains the ambiance and charm of the Skeff whilst bringing a contemporary twist to the historic venue.

This vibrant and bustling Galway hotspot is now open. With plush seating and an extensive wine, whiskey, gin and specialised cocktail menu, Grace’s drinking club offers a cosy and inviting space for socialising in the heart of the city centre.

Whether it’s a party, after-work drinks, or simply a chance to catch up with friends, Grace’s drinking club combines elegance, comfort and style.

From the classic Margaritas and Martinis, to the aptly named Eyre Cosmo and of course Pirate Queen, discover the delectable array of cocktails at Grace’s drinking club at the Skeff Late Bar and Kitchen in Eyre Square. View our extensive Cocktail Menu here.
