Burkes of Colemanstown is situated in a picturesque area of east County Galway, near an ancient territorial crossroads. The establishment comprises a Public House, a Garage (Petrol Pumps), a Shop, and a Post Office; and carries with it a rich legacy which has been rooted in the local community for generations.
Colemanstown is blessed with national monuments spanning all of Ireland's history and these pay silent tribute to the many people who lived in the area over the centuries. The premises is situated close to the beautiful villages of Menlough (6km) and Monivea (8km). There are many pleasant woodland and country walks within the area of the premises and within walking distance are three iconic Galway landmarks, namely Garbally Castle, Clonkeenkerrill Friary, and Killaclogher Bog (National Heritage Area).
Burkes of Colemanstown is located close to Ballinasloe (35km) - home of the world famous Horse Fair, the heritage town of Athenry (20km), and the medieval city of Galway with it's multitude of attractions is only 40km away. Burkes of Colemanstown is one of those dying breeds of rural and community-driven Irish pubs that continues to fulfill important cultural and communal functions.

"Returned after 50 years"
An emotional return to this lovely little Pub tucked away in beautiful surroundings. Spent many happy days there with my Burke cousins in my youth, 50 yrs ago, its wonderful that it is still there, family run, and still has the same warm atmosphere. Only wish I could return again.
