Cocktails at The Penny Bar

Sip your favourite classic cocktails with a modern twist

Step back in time and visit 1520, with its the inviting and dimly lit interior.  Through the old, historic walls, tucked away at the back of the building you’ll find The Penny Bar, our cocktail bar that parties like the best of them, and mixes the world’s greatest drinks to perfection.

Take a seat on our fireside chairs or hideaway in the snug where you can easily while away an afternoon.  Here our craftsmanship shines, with an extensive cocktail list and drinks menu. The showmanship and presentation that goes into making a cocktail are what makes 1520 one of the up and coming cocktail bars in Galway.

1520 Bar is quickly becoming known as one of the best cocktail spots in the city, and the team of mixologists there are always looking for a new twist on the classics.

  • Great bar in the heart of the town - the staff are superb - the world could learn a lot from these people. The place is lively with good food - and great live music - defiantly worth a visit !!!
