Galway Bay Restaurant

You are here Home  > Restaurants and Bars >  Galway Bay Restaurant

This late nineteenth century restaurant and pub serves up a variety of spirits, including whisky, scotch and even some ghost stories. Staff working late hours have reported the apparition of a servant girl in the basement, while diners have reportedly mistaken her for a staff member in the courtyard. The other apparition is heard rather than seen, and is that of a phantom bootlegger who was shot dead in the establishment by a disgruntled rival. Other reports of activity include loud footsteps, objects moving around of their own accord and the sound of a woman singing when there is no one around.
