The Front Door (Sonny Molloy’s), Galway City

The historic Front Door pub in Galway City is deceptively large, with five different bar areas and plenty of nooks and crannies to hide away in.  The pub livens up in the evening with DJs and an eclectic mix of music that is played throughout the night. During the day, visitors can also enjoy a quiet pint in the cosy pub.
