The Skeff Late Bar & Kitchen is one of the finest Gastro Pubs in Galway City with our passion for food which is only matched by our commitment to the quality of our ingredients - all sourced locally - and value for money. Our kitchen is one of the most famous Galway Restaurants - we're right on Eyre Square. We cater for all tastes and are constantly on the look-out for new ideas and recipes to add to our repertoire. We are also more than happy to cater for any dietary requirements or dislikes and feel strongly that regardless of your culinary needs, you should have an unforgettable dining experience.


Cocktail Bar

The spirit of daring and adventure evoked by Irelandโ€™s celebrated Pirate Queen, Grace Oโ€™Malley, has inspired the naming of the latest addition to the historic Skeff Late Bar and Kitchen. The new luxurious cocktail lounge, Graceโ€™s, set in the surrounds of the 17th century landmark building, retains the ambiance and charm of the Skeff whilst bringing a contemporary twist to the historic venue.
