Every now and then I’ll pop out a post on Instagram asking the Irish Road Trip community for their recommendations on places to go and things to see.

A couple of weeks back I was en route to the west of Ireland and, thanks to a one night pit stop, was in search of recommendations for the best pubs in Galway city to ramble into for a few pints with friends.

Hundreds of people replied and lots of passionate arguments ensued.

Now I don’t know about you, but I love Galway – the only trouble is, I always find myself spoiled for choice when it comes to picking a pub.

This time was different, though. This time I had a list. A boozer bucket list, of sorts.

So here it is. All the best pubs in Galway city that the Irish Road Trip community thinks you should nurse a few pints in!

For the most part, this list is in no particular order, except for first place. An Púcán pulled in the majority of votes by a long-shot!

1 – An Púcán, 11 Forster St, Galway

As always, I’m keen to hear what you think below! Is there a pub you’ve been to that should have made the list? Is there one there that shouldn’t? Let me know below.
