Tour description provided by Viator

Four Bars. Some Snacks, and a lot of Craic. We will walk you around Galway and take you to four of our favourite craft beer venues and amazing pubs in different parts of Galway city. The places we visit will vary slightly depending upon the time of the tour, but we promise to take you to some sound venues and introduce you to tasty Irish Craft Beer. Our main focus is to showcase the breweries from the West of Ireland as much as possible, and we’ll include fabulous beer from all across Ireland, too! 
ItineraryThis is a typical itinerary for this productStop At: Eyre Square, Galway, County Galway, Western IrelandNote: The tour cost for this small group tour includes your guide and snacks for the evening. All beer (or other drinks are extra).We will visit four bars scattered around Galway City each with a completely different atmosphere and selection of craft beers. The tour includes your guide, a maximum group size of ten people and all snacks. As much as this tour is about learning about Irish Independent Craft Beer, it’s about the pubs we visit. Non-Beer Drinkers and just Non-Drinkers will also love it! Mon and Wednesday - Our tour starts at the Liam Mellows Statue located adjacent to Eyre Square (across the road from the large Galway Hooker sail statue). Saturdays – We start at the Spanish Arch. Look for a metal red door beside the arch right across the square for Jury’s Inn.We will be walking between bars, however the longest transfer is about 10 minutes. Please come prepared for the rain - it does happen here from time to time! As beer drinking is hungry work, you will have a small snack at each venue - our take on potatoes three ways. We will introduce each beer, the style, little tidbits about the brewery and also the history of each venue and why we find it special. As much as the tour is about beer, it is about Galway. We promise you will leave knowing a lot more about Irish independent beer and the wonderful places to drink it. We recommend doing this tour on you first night as you will leave with a tip sheets for amazing places to eat, drink and shop for the rest of your time in our great city.
