Best Food in Galway! Mcswiggans is guaranteed good food every visit. I've been here a number of times and I am never disappointed. Tonight we were a party of four adults and a baby for evening meal. Kid friendly which is great. We availed of the early bird menu which was brilliant value, large portions and all of the dishes were delicious

"Atmosphere, Food, Staff, Wonderful!" Eight of us stumbled upon McSwiggan's on a happy summer's night in June. It was a a terrific experience. The decor is creative, interesting, innovative, yet atmosphere retains an inviting pub feeling with a lively vibe. We were seated immediately in an upstairs room where our servers could not have been more accommodating and helpful. Our food was delicious. A fun place with everything going for it!
