Music & Events

McSwiggans are delighted to host weekly music sessions from some of Ireland’s legendary and up and coming musicians – check out the site to keep track of some of the great artists we have joining us for some ‘craic agus céol’ in Galway!

Cafe Minor

Café Minor was established by four travelling musicians who had all came to Galway because of their passion for music. After meeting up in sessions and busking in the streets the band was finally formed in the summer of 2006. Here you can listen to some of the tracks of their debut album. There are three Swedes and one Finn in the band, all with different musical influences which gives their repertoire huge variety. Gypsy and klezmer would be the main part of their repertoire but also Finnish, Swedish and American tunes and songs. Over the last year Café Minor has been playing gigs around Galway and West of Ireland and also went on a tour to Holland.

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!
