Restaurant seating in front then a long bar. In back is a sports room with pool, games and plenty of seating at tables and benches. They have 6 Galway Bay beers on tap, the rest being a few ciders and macros. Good food. Service is average, I had to flag her down for everything we needed but was nice.

Essentially a large pub with restaurant like seating up front, a long bar and a rear room with TV and a pool table. Of the 26 taps, only six were Galway Bay brews and one a cider, the rest being majors. There is no micro-brewery on-site as increased production has seen it move.
Large indoor seating area with a comfortable nook or two. We took a couch nestled in the corner by a shelf of books. Fairly quiet during our visit on a Monday night. Nice range of offerings, including some fairly creative ones. (Like a sweet potato, black bean, quinoa burger.) Waitress was not exceedingly helpful at listing all the brews on hand so I just went up front and picked what I wanted for my flight. Nice stop though.
15min busride from Galway centre to the west. Located close to the strand promenade. Large location. First room is mainly restaurant sitting, then follows the long bar, afterwards you enter a large room with a big screen and long tables, at the end of this room stairs lead to an outdoor area. I did beer flights to try all their beers and it was great. Worth the short ride.
Where is all started on the West coast. A large gastro-sports bar with the full range of Galway Bay ales including experimental ones. Out at Salthill - the part of Galway City beyond the traffic jams. Great bar area but then it’s that Sports-gastro bit. The former takes the eye off the latter. Too much hi-cal stuff not enough delicately nuanced stuff, or vegetables.
Great location within walking distance from the city centre, but far enough away not to be over touristic. Good selection of international beers, Uk beers, Irish beers and of course 10 taps of Galway Bay Brewery. Good food, and excellent service on a monday night. A must visit in Galway.
Worth the walk out of Galway to get to this place. Great range of beer including most of the Galway Bay range plus a lot of others.
Food available. Decent bottle list too and free wifi. What more does a rater need?
Sunday afternoon place was comfortable. Plenty of room and far enough off the tourist trail to keep it so
Brewpub tres accueillant. Bieres maison de grandes classes! Choix de bieres autres excellents, de tres bonnes bieres de chaque style. N’hesitez pas a pousser la porte ou en terrasse pour la vue sur l’ocean! Cheers!
(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.
