Located in a fully-restored protected structure in Galway’s trendy West End, BóTOWN serves a wide selection of craft burgers and beers across two floors in a really chilled, cosy and charming setting. BóTOWN is the home of craft burgers and beers but the restaurant has so much more to offer, including a very popular brunch menu and a wide selection of craft ciders, wines, hot drinks and milkshakes. Attention to detail is key and no stone was left unturned in the pursuit of the finest local produce available. BóTOWN’s 7oz beef patties are 100% Irish and sourced from one of Ireland’s most distinguished producers, award-winning Gilligan’s Farm. Their soft brioche buns are freshly baked every day in Coghlan’s Artisan Bakery in Naas, Co. Kildare. As well as beef, there are chicken and vegetarian/vegan burgers, a variety of side dishes such as chicken wings, charred corn on the cob and Mac n Cheese Bacon Balls. Gluten-free options are also available.

The burgers are awesome!
Just the chocolate cookie chips Sunday that I didn’t think is as good as them, not because of the ice cream and all the stuff, but because of the flavour in general.
The chips are class! Really really well made!

Anyway, I recommend this place I’ll be back soon!

Great food (best burger in Galway), great staff and very reasonable price point. To be fair, our table was likely the only noisey one there.

Really nice chap serving us food. Put us at ease. Food is top notch and some nice beers. I am a coeliac and to find most food can be made gluten free is a massive plus. Burger buns were perfect. gluten free beers class. Will be back

The food was excellent. There’s a great variety of burgers and the board is brilliant value. The place is very cool. We were upstairs and outside, a great spot in normal times I imagine. Due to all that is happening there wasn’t much atmosphere. I thought looking at the site there was a variety of cocktails etc a menu never appeared for these. The wine list is limited and fairly poor. The service was shockingly slow. Again I imagine this was due to limited numbers and people maybe just not on the their A game as numbers were low. Food was slow to come out because of lots of take aways. This didn’t improve. We finished food around 8.55/9. It was 9.17 before anyone came to see if we wanted anything else. By that stage we were ready to leave as we had 3 kids with us. They did give the kids a small box of pick n mix to make up for no dessert so that was a nice touch. They did lose out on around €35/40 in the bill due to the slowness because we had no desserts/coffee etc. Worth a trip for the food but I’d request a table downstairs where you might get some atmosphere and attention. Great for children’s food.

This was my first time in Botown. I will definitely return! The food was delicious. Generous portions for a very good price. It was my first time eating out since the Covid 19 pandemic. I was very impressed by the careful observation of distancing and hygiene rules, whilst maintaining a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere. I had a fantastic experience at Botown and I would highly recommend it for a delicious burger and craft beer!

Fantastic job managing a great atmosphere, outstanding food and COVID-related safety and protocols. We were here with 2, somewhat picky, kids and they loved it as much as we did!
