Live Music Venues

Galway City is renowned for its live music scene. While nearly every Pub in Galway hosts live music at some point, many pubs have live music on a weekly and in some cases a daily basis. Most music styles can be heard somewhere if you look hard enough. In this article we have left out traditional Irish music pubs from this article because they have their own section.

The Roisin Dubh
Undisputed King of the live music scene in Galway City. Diverse range of music styles. Open until 2am nightly.

The Kings Head
Popular spot with nightly rock cover bands all week with Dj's at the weekends .

The Cellar

Best home holiday destination 2018

Winner: Galway

“It has to be Galway,” you told us. And so it proved.

Last year, Dingle took pride of place among your favourite home holiday destinations. But for 2018, the west has won, with Galway banking almost double the votes of any other place.

“There’s something about that city,” you said. “The moment I get off the bus, I get this buzz. I've yet to have one bad out night there.”

You hailed Galway’s “great energy” as “a perfect blend between traditional Ireland and modern society”, and called it Ireland’s “culture capital”.

The city is “young, vibrant and distinctly Irish,” readers added, with “heart-warming hustle and bustle” that is “always welcoming at different times of the year.”
