O Connors 

O'Connor's "famous" Pub in Salthill bills itself as the first singing pub in Ireland. The veracity of the "famous" tag and the claim to be Ireland's first singing pub is open to debate but it would probably easily win the title of the most decorated pub in Ireland. On entering O'Connors you will be astounded by the the number of articles hanging from every possible inch of space. Old Gaslights, farm implements, crockery, photos, weighing scales and a near life size statue of John Wayne (in The Quiet man) are scattered throughout the Pub. It is possible to get totally disorientated in here and you can start to wonder what year it is as you are transported to years gone by.


The Quiet Man is here somewhere

As you can imagine O'Connors is a tourists dream and the clientele reflects this especially during the summer when it can be overun by American tourists. However even the most cynical of Galwegians would admit that a visit to O'Connors is a worthwhile experience, if even just to have a quick pint and bang your head on a low hanging lamp.

Live music can be heard many nights and a singalong comprising most of the Pub  is not out of the question.
