Teach Furbo, originally was linked with Galway's thriving music scene in the 1960's, 1970's and early 1980's as it was a bastion of live music and entertainment, famous all over Ireland. Some of Ireland's great acts of the last 50 years would have played the famed hall in Teach Furbo which today is our function room, the Aran Suite. Greats such as Paddy Cole, The Dubliners, Christy Moore and Planxty to name but a few played the smoke filled room on busy weekends with a huge following from far and wide. 

Today, Teach Furbo lends its name to our hotel pub is a traditional and rustic style bar where on selected evenings there are traditional Irish musicians available to entertain guests. Irish is the first language spoken in Teach Furbo so don't be afraid, make the effort and your gaeilge will be appreciated.
