My wife and booked this restaurant a week in advance as we had got feed back from friends of ours that had eaten there . We arrived early and had a few drinks before we were seated for our meal. I had a Sirloin steak well done and chips which was only delicious .My wife had cod and chips which she really enjoyed .We did not have dessert as we were full and could not eat any more.
We had two coffees and paid the bill.
The staff were very friendly and efficient. We will defiantly be back again when we visit Galway and would highly recommend this restaurant .

COVID check and precautions were completed well and contact tracing was initiated.
Out of the 10 or so tables in there ourselves (group of 6), a couple and another group were in eating. 3/10 approx tables taken.
We took our seats and waited 10 mins for menus, only to have to ask for them. Waited another 10/15 mins for someone to take our order - we again had to ask. Waited for our drinks for about 15/20 mins and could see them made and waiting on the counter. We again had to ask for the drinks to be brought down - waitress walked right by them and did nothing. Another waitress finally realised and dropped them down. From sitting down to ordering and getting our drinks was about 40 mins.
Where we were sat actually cut another couple off from access by the waiters, so a lady came over and demanded we moved as if we were the ones who laid out the floor plan and decided to sit in her way ourselves. “I have to get by here to serve these people could you move” - is what we got. We also overheard that couple mentioning they waited 30 mins for dinner and had finished their first drink for 10 mins before asking someone to come over.
Food came and was nice, no snags with that. Our drinks were replenished when noticed which was good. However wine was just dropped out in a cooler with cap still on and not poured/tasted - just left down.
Overall if the service wasn’t as poor as it was we would have enjoyed the dinning experience a whole lot more. Disappointing as I’ve heard great things about this place before. Unfortunately won’t be back again and based off our experience would not recommend.
Good afternoon , We are naturally disappointed to read of the service issues you encountered but we are non the less grateful that you brought it to our attention. It is good to read that you enjoyed the meal but we do apologise that our service fell short on this occasion We appreciate your feedback. Kind Regards The Kirby's Team
Lovely food and lovely staff!
Very average, aside from the very efficient woman who greeted us the service was poor.
Fine if you're passing and hungry but not a venue for a special evening.

Lovely restaurant. Very good value for money. Good choice of starters and mains. I'd recommend the black pudding and parma ham starter which was beautiful. And the crab and smoked salmon combo as a main. Excellent food.

Hi ClareM, Many thanks for taking the time to post your kind review. Kind Regards The Kirby's Team
We were waiting a while for our cocktails (food arrived before cocktails) and the prices of them had gone up but apparently it's the same in a lot of places. Food was very good!
Hi Edel, Many thanks for taking the time to post your review - delighted you enjoyed your visit to Kirby's . Kind Regards The Kirby's team
Had eaten at Buskers before which is always great and tried Kirbys last weekend. Food was very average and not particularly great. Asked and was advised the chicken breast was off the bone by waiter which was not the case.
Took 20minutes to get the attention of a waitress to take a drinks order & order dessert - which is a lot of time when you are confined to 2 hours. Dinner plates only lifted as Dessert was coming.
Time to either add one extra pair of hands upstairs or else please ensure all staff are looking after the entire floor and not just the tables close to the bar!
Hopefully it was a one-off as it is a really nice venue inside.
Hi PatM, Many thanks for taking the time to post your review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your food. We appreciate all feedback which we have shared with our team. We hope to welcome you back to Kirby's again Kind Regards The Kirby's Team
Food was tasty. Music too loud for a restaurant, felt like a disco. More of a student spot than a family restaurant. Would probably be better to go there for a drink than a meal but overall a nice place.
Many thanks for taking the time to post your review, all feedback is greatly appreciated. We are delighted to hear you enjoyed your meal. Kind Regards The Kirby's Team
Fabulous meal, attentive staff, perfect evening!
Friendly staff and food and drink were great, only thing was they added drinks form another table to ours but fixed when we notified them

Parfait cuisine délicieuse personnels aux petits soins
Was sat directly under the aircon which was so cold we had to put our coats on and eventually the staff moved us. Food came out very fast and was tasty and satisfying.
We also spotted unused bread from tables being reused at the bar a couple of times during our visit which was off putting. Cocktails were very nice.
Hi SineadF, Many thanks for posting your review, we appreciate all feedback and are delighted that you enjoyed your food & cocktails. Unused bread would never be re used it is disposed off once removed from the tables. Kind Regards The Kirby's Team
I loved Kirbys, I haven’t been out in a while and it was brilliant. 10:10 for Kirbys
