Busker Brownes

A Galway institution dating back to 1615, Busker Brownes has served as a meeting place for the Tribes of Galway, a soldiers' barracks, a Dominican convent, and a gathering spot for the Galway Society. Today, it stands as one of the city’s premier bars and restaurants. Its impressive design seamlessly blends medieval stonework with contemporary furnishings, and includes multiple bars and floors, creating an inviting and dynamic atmosphere. However, the true magic of Busker Brownes is unleashed on weekends, when talented DJs take the stage, filling the air with energetic beats that bring the entire pub to life.
