Pubs

From midnight on Wednesday 22 October 2020, until Friday 4 December, pubs in Ireland were only allowed to serve on a delivery or takeaway / off-license basis.

From 4 December, pubs which are also restaurants, ie have a kitchen and chef, can open - under new restrictions.   Pubs which are not restaurants (so-called "wet pubs")  can only  open on a delivery or takeaway basis

The list below shows Galway city pubs which are open in this way, or which have announced that they will do so.  It will be updated as more pubs open or close.
