The West of Irelands first Elephant and Castle is finally here! Located less than a minute walk from Galway’s City Centre, Eyre Square, you can find the restaurant on the ground floor of the newly built Dean.
A beautiful large island bar is the centrepiece of this space, with specially commissioned hand-crafted stitched leather panels. It is a local gathering place for family and friends.
With an innovative menu that brings together old world flavours and contemporary international cuisines. Every plate is packed with fresh, honest, tasty food, created with the very best Irish produce.
From the fluffy omelettes, Caesar salads and juicy burgers and world famous Chicken Wings
We focus on friendly, laid-back service; tasty as ever food and a relaxed atmosphere - everything Elephant & Castle lovers have come to expect we’re bringing to the Dean Galway.

    The food was great and huge portions, however, there was only 2 servers . It was hard to order drinks or get dipping sauces because no one was around most of the time. The server we had was great, but it was just her and she was running all over the place. Still a good place just lacking of service during our dining.

    Very friendly efficient service. Food was tasty. The only negative was that the restaurant was very cold and I had to put on my coat during the meal. We had a similar experience the last time we were there.
