Located on High Street in the centre of the City, this immaculately clean pub is a treasure trove of old artefacts and a Pub Guide favourite. An often overlooked venue due to its position beside many larger pubs, the Bunch of Grapes has a loyal following especially among older professionals. The walls are adorned with lots of items from the pasts and symbols of old Galway. The Bunch of Grapes has a small seating area outside on High Street which is a great place to be on a sunny day. They also serve delicious sandwiches using bread from a local bakery or you can go upstairs to the separate cafe. The “Bunch” was opened in the 1980s during an era of regeneration in the City centre and was named after a pub in London which the owner had managed. It has stood the test of time looks like it will be around for a long time to come.
The building itself is in a row dating from the early 1800s when they were built on the site of a former school. Many businesses have traded from here in the 200 years since including Campbells’s general store, Curran’s pub and Egan’s pub.
