There have been television shows made about the need to go where your name is known, and a visit to Galway Bay Irish Restaurant and Pub is the first place you should check out when you have that feeling yourself! Open every day of the week from 10 AM or 11 AM until 11 PM, midnight, or 1 AM (depending on the day), the owners, staff, and guests of the pub may not know you at first, but it won’t be long until you’re considered family! The best vacations deserve the best meals, and the best meals are enhanced with friendly atmospheres and delicious drinks. Make your Maryland getaway even more memorable when you visit this historic Galway Bay Irish Pub!
Located at 63 Maryland Avenue in Annapolis
For over 20 years Galway Bay Irish Restaurant and Pub has been the place to go for a refreshing drink, a savory meal, and a taste of the old country. Housed inside a white painted brick building on a historic cobblestone street, the brilliant green trim has the feel of an Irish countryside. Inside, the old brick walls remain unpainted and their red spans are decorated with dark wood and colorful stained-glass windows. Stone floors, personable waiters, and happy crowds sipping on perfectly poured Guinness pints completes the picture of your next night out!
The Menu of Galway Bay Irish Pub
More than one menu offers an embarrassment of choices. The specials that change on a daily basis include specialties such as the Soup of the Moment, Spaghetti and Pork Belly, the Sandwich of the Moment, special drinks from the bar, and sweet treats from the oven. The children’s menu offers more than chicken fingers and burgers; our children have fallen in love with the traditional lamb stew! An extensive main menu that blends Irish specialties with Maryland delicacies features food that will please any appetite, and a gluten-friendly menu serves those with food requirements. Their happy hour and late-night menu offer small plates of summer sausage and hot smoked salmon pick-ups with special late-night prices; Irish lamb stew, beef stew, shepherd’s pie, and fish and chips can be ordered at any time of the day or night. And because music makes the meal go down smoothly, live entertainment that includes open mic nights and traditional Irish music will make your dining experience that much more special!
When Your Night Is a Perfect One
There really is not anything else we can add to the perfect night in Annapolis. After spending your evening celebrating with all your new friends, it just does not get any better, but you can make the night even more perfect when you start out with the perfect day! Waking up to the sun in your eyes but feeling so comfortable you roll over and fall back asleep for another hour or so. Wandering into the kitchen of your At Home Annapolis cozy cottage to find your traveling partner ran over to Sandy Pony Donuts (2444 Solomons Island Road), picked out an entire box of your favorites, and brewed a pot of coffee to go along with the sweet treats! Realizing that even on vacation, eating three donuts is a bit excessive, then deciding to walk off the extra calories at the beautiful Jonas and Anne Catherine Green Park! Your time in Annapolis does not have to be structured to be perfect, it just has to be perfectly wonderful to you.
Spend your afternoon roaming the Mitchell Gallery at St. John’s College and find that perfect oil painting that you have been seeking to hang over the couch in your living room. Or perfection can also be obtained with the purchase of a little tchotchke, picked up in one of the shops in historic downtown Annapolis. Exploring the candy selection at Lolli and Pops can fill some of the hours as you ponder the unique choices; did you know that Guinness makes a dark chocolate candy bar? Munching on that before you head out to Galway’s could be all you need to get in the mood for a night of fun and frolicking Irish pub style!
