If there is one day of the week God intended for drinking then it was Sunday and in Galway there is no better day. Sunday drinking in Galway throws up endless options to see wonderful live music around the town. We have included what we think are the pick of the bunch and this crawl definitely has a few musical styles thrown in. This Pub Crawl is best started at in the early evening.
A Sunday session at the Crane
We start our pub crawl in Tig Coili which is a great spot for some traditional music on a daily basis.
Go to Tigh Neachtain for their Sunday session which is guaranteed to get your feet tapping and head nodding.
The Salthouse on Ravens terrace has carried on the long running Sunday session tradition from its previous incarnation (Weigh Inn) taking place from about 5 - 7. Taylors, Carrolls and Garavans all deserve honourable mentions for the standard of their Sunday music.
For those who appreciate different styles of music why not head to the Roisin Dubh where the weekly Sunday night open Mic usually starts around 9.30pm. Alternatively local legends Pyramid play every Sunday night at the Quays Pub playing other peoples originals.
A later stop is at the Crane where music can be heard on the ground floor or upstairs with Greg Cotter and Mary Flanagan. For those hardy enough to continue there is a fantastic Sunday night musical feast in the back room of the Roisin Dubh from 11.30 featuring the gravel throated John Conneelly
