(Visited 11/2012): Oslo is located in the Upper Salthill area of Galway in a shopping and dining district. Street parking is fairly abundant in the surrounding blocks.
The interior opens to a seating area, then a bar on the left side, with wooden floors and tables. In the back is a banquet room where they do table quiz and other events, which offers a view of the brewing equipment and a large board listing the beers. Various brewing-related decor throughout the inside.
Oslo has around 20 draught beers, featuring their house beers under the Galway Bay monicker. This included Stormy Port, Strange Brew, Full Sail and others on our visit. They also carry imports and other Irish breweries like BrewDog. They have a bottled selection nearing 50.
Service during our visit for a Thanksgiving Table Quiz was good. The server and staff running the quiz were friendly, and they care about their beer.
Food at Oslo on our visit consisted of bar food and desserts and it was all pretty good.
All in all this is a worthwhile beer place to hit in Galway.

The beer and food menu are alright, however we would not believe how staff treated customers right in front of our eyes. One staff starting giving out to a client in front of all customers for no reason whatesovere. A few men took the poor girl’s defense but the barman (manager?) never apologised.
A scandal to be able to run a place with such unprofessionalisme.
We are shocked and recommend people not to go in such places...

September 2009 - Only a tip from Aidan, Galway Hooker’s brewer, did we discover this new brewpub during our visit to the west coast of Ireland. Smack dab in the middle of the busy Salthill area, Oslo is apparently a recently renovated hotel/dancehall. Now a brewpub/beer bar/cafe, Oslo has an interesting mix of Euro-modern and down-home feel. Although during our visit they had just started brewing, they could still offer us one of their house beers that had been brewed elsewhere. I think they’ll eventually offer 3-4 house beers. But they also have a very nice selection of guest drafts and a eccentric mix of harder-to-find-in-Ireland European beers, ranging from Polish lagers to English and Belgian ales. The light pub food was tasty, too. A tad bit expensive, but what isn’t in Ireland? Definitely a stop for Galway!
