About Us

Busker Browne’s & Kirby’s Restaurant is located on Cross Street in the heart of Galway’s Latin Quarter. It is housed in an historic building tracing its origins back to 1615. Over the years it has served as a meeting place for the Tribes of Galway, a Convent and a barracks.

Nowadays it is an impressive pub with medieval stonework side by side with contemporary furniture. The pub is impressively designed with several bars and floors. Indeed from the outside it looks deceptively small but once inside you have many options such as The Slate House Bar towards the rear which can also be accessed from Kirwan’s lane. There is also another bar and private party room upstairs. Buskers really comes alive at the weekends when DJ’s keep the place jumping. The clientele is well dressed and also gets a good age spread.

Thursday nights feature live band “The Mojo’s”. Friday & Saturday’s are jovial thanks to DJ Rob and a late bar. The Sunday Jazz session which happens around lunchtime is always worth a look especially if you are trying to get rid of the after effects of Saturday night. Or indeed Monday’s nights jazz session to get rid of Sunday’s!

Buskers is very popular for its food, especially lunch and the adjoining Kirby’s restaurant have a popular Value Dining Menu offering;

- 2 courses for €22.50

- 3 courses for €24.95

- Both including a complimentary drink of your choice afterwards in the bar!
