Galway Bay Brewery About The Brewery

Galway Bay Brewery


Going from strength to strength

Over the last few years, the craft beer industry in Ireland has gone from strength to strength, with approximately 14 microbreweries operating in Ireland today. Beer connoisseurs from across the country seek out brew pubs in favour of the mainstream bars. The process of brewing is age-old and greatly appreciated by fans as each brew is lovingly created through a hands-on, complex brewing process. The result is that no two brews are the same while the beer is in development and the unveiling of a new craft brew is cause for celebration among the craft beer community.

Galway Bay Brewery will be expanding to include brewery tours, talks on the craft of brewing with the Brewer himself and plans to serve their finest products in select city restaurants from November. Eventually, leading to distribution across Ireland and overseas. This is the latest business venture from Jason O’Connell and Niall Walsh, the Galway natives responsible for The Cottage, The Oslo and The Salthouse.

Cheers for craft beers!

We brew our own: Full Sail, Bay Ale, Stormy Port and Buried at Sea. Keep an eye on our rotational tap for limited edition brews too! We also have a huge range of imported and local bottled beers.

Bottling for us, a labour of love, each bottle; labelled, rinsed, filled, capped & boxed one-by-one. This will become much easier now at the end of October when our new bottling line arrives and we can actually get more automated. Photo:

Hitting the taps over the weekend in our bars is our Red Rye Saison, Holocene. Weighing in at 7% ABV, the most beautiful ruby-red colour and a complex spicy/pepper character, it's one interesting brew!
