Monroes is a cornerstone of Galway's West End. They opened their doors in 1964 and are now Galway’s premier live music venue with 3 bars, 2 floors, 2 stages and a diverse and fantastic supply of live music from around the world. Pub downstairs, live music venue upstairs. Monroe’s Tavern has a rustic feel with open stone fires, stained glass features and wooden flooring. The main bar is one of the longest in Galway City with lots of high chairs to perch upon. Monroe’s has a solid reputation as a home for traditional Irish music and live music is played here seven nights a week.
