About Us

We are an award winning pub - • Black and White Co. Galway Pub of the Year 2004 • Irish Pubs of Distinction 2005 and 2006 • Licensing World Bar Awards 2008 • Local Bar Award Finalist

Located on the square in the busy town of Mountbellew, The Malt House boasts fabulous comfortable décor and a unique history. The birthplace of Senior Galway and County footballer Joe Bergin, the establishment has strong links with the GAA. A famous stage coach stop and hostelry well over a century ago, it was the first singing pub in Galway to be granted a dance licence back in 1969.

With its natural stone finish at the front of the building and its two open fires, The Malt House is a friendly and welcoming place. Superb food is served 7 days a week. Lunch is from 12.30pm - 4.00pm, A la Carte 4.00pm to 9.00pm and Sunday lunch is served until 5.00pm and then A la Carte until 9.00pm.

The Malt House looks to entertain its customers as well. There is live music in the bar every Saturday night while a Night Club looks after late night revellers - also on a Saturday. In addition to this we cater for all types of functions, small or large. With excellent, courteous and friendly customer orientated staff, this is the ideal family pub.

We are a very well known establishment, some might compare us to the local community centre. We have a very successful food trade and a good local bar trade. Most of our employees are local and very friendly so are a great source of local knowledge. We are very family friendly and will try and meet the needs and expectations of everyone from a cup of coffee, a pint by an open fire, a quick lunch, healthy dinner, business meeting or a romantic dinner with your loved one.

We cater for the needs of everyone!

We also have a function room which we use for weddings, funerals, confirmations, christenings, parties etc. We can seat up to 120 people at one sitting in our function room. We also serve a selection of sandwiches all day. We take bookings every day except Sunday - on Sunday it is strictly first come first served. All our produce is sourced and supplied locally.
