Great food good atmosphere and good beer selection – This was a good place. I went there with two of my volleyball girls and they fit right in. a good mix of people adn good for families, probably not witht he little ones later in the evening. They have live music on certain nights as well which made things fun.

good pub – My wife and I go there often for a couple of beers and fish and chips on Friday evenings. The smoke gets unbearble inside so we have to leave. Sometimes we walk into the front door and turn around. My friends love the food there but again, smoke keeps them away.

Great at home feeling, no matter where your from!! – This is the only place close to getting it right in Huntersville. Owner and mangers super friendly and the food is excellent. I personally try to go by a least once a week for nothing more than a drink and some good conversation. Try the steak, or the buffalo shrimp my 2 recommendations. Or get them both usually my choice!!!

Galway Irish Pub - Cornelius - Don't waste your time or money... – We ordered Corn beef and cabbage. It was sadly disappointing, to see a 10oz pile of ?thinly-shaved? corn beef that appeared to have been ?re-heated? offered up as my meal. I tried a couple of bites, and true to my expectations, you could have done better in buying a package of ?shaved corn beef? from the lunch meat section, in a grocery store. The corn beef was far from tender and had more of a texture similar to ?chewing rubber?.

The Manager, Adam, suggested that I select another item from the menu. At this point, I did not see that happening. My wife worked her way through her meal. She ate the cabbage and left half of the corn beef on her plate. For our trouble, inconvenience, and disappointment, Adam deducted the cost of my meal from the ticket. In my opinion, that was a minimalist effort. There was no further attempt to rectify the situation. So based on the poor food quality, and the poor customer service from the manager, I have serious doubts about ever again visiting or recommending Galway Irish Pub. It was clear to me that they were more concerned about keeping my money than keeping my future business!

If you want a real ?Irish Dinner? and a great plate of corn beef, go to Ri Ra?s in downtown Charlotte!

You won?t be disappointed there!

Kick back with a stout pint and traditional nosh at this Irish pub in Cornelius. – In Short
Named after the 19th-century Galway Hooker sailboats, this traditional Irish pub is aptly located just minutes from Lake Norman. A popular hangout with the locals, the warm, inviting eatery draws a diverse crowd, including families with kids, couples on dates and local frat boys. Irish fare such as fish and chips, shepherd's pie and lamb stew are featured, as is an extensive beer menu with brews from around the globe.
