HYDE Bar is an exciting addition to the Galway social scene. After conducting extensive research, we have created a venue unlike any other in the city. Hyde is elegant, stylish and refined, just like the customers we are here to serve. Outstanding service is our core value. The best form of marketing is word of mouth and we intend to deliver a product that speaks for itself. From a genuine heartfelt welcome when you enter, right through your dining or drinking experience.

Elegant, stylish and refined – our award-winning bar and restaurant, HYDE Bar and Gin Parlour is the newest addition to the Connacht Hospitality Group and is part of the HYDE Hotel (formerly The Forster Court Hotel) located on Forster Street, just off Eyre Square in the centre of Galway City.

It combines friendly and attentive service, a menu bursting with local flavours, killer cocktails and a chic-but-casual ambiance. Whether you’re a guest at the hotel or passing through Galway, this is an ideal choice for our renowned brunch, an intimate dinner, lunch meeting with colleagues or a pour of one of our 450 Gins!
