Our Story

Nestled in the heart of Galway city’s main shopping thoroughfare, stands the
historic building that is
Garavan’s Public House.



In the Irish Annals of Clonmacnoise in 1405, the first written record of whisky attributes the death of a chieftain to “taking a surfeit of aqua vitae” at Christmas.
