Galway Stories

Howya! Eoin McGrath (

Didn't you know that Galway is full of interesting characters? Well, we want to give you a chance to get to know some of the sound people of Galway so join us in saying Howya! to some fascinating figures... This month we got chatting to the charming Eoin McGrath....

Howya! Any craic?
Howya, sure, there’s always a bit of craic (when you're in the party throwing business.)

Tell us about yourself..
My name is Eoin McGrath, and I'm the owner/operator of

What does offer?
Let's say you decide to have a party. Be it a wedding, (a day 2), a birthday, an anniversary, a work do or anything at all and you think ‘we need a bar’. You give me a call and depending on the needs of the party, I'll show up and build you a bar with everything you could possibly think of. No party is too big or too small.

What brought you to Galway?
Originally I came for college but didn't see it through, there were far too many distractions in this town.

What's your favourite thing to do in Galway?
A walk on the Prom followed by a pint in Lonergan's, be it at the height of Summer or the depths of Winter. You'd need the reward after all that walking....

Tell us one thing you'd love to change about Galway?
The accommodation situation for sure. It's becoming nigh on impossible for the people that work and gig in the city to actually live in it and that is a sorry state of affairs.

Tell us a secret...
That's not how secrets work!

Tell us a joke!
Did you hear about the magic cow? She was walking down the road and she turned into a field!
