Galway Hooker Brewery

About Us

Welcome to Connacht’s oldest brewery and the home of Irish Pale Ale Located on the West Coast of Ireland, in the stunning surrounds of the Wild Atlantic Way

Our Story

A pioneer of the modern craft beer movement, famous for its innovation and quality, Galway Hooker has developed a reputation as one of Ireland’s leading breweries.

Galway Hooker is Ireland’s third oldest independent brewery and the oldest existing brewery in Connacht. In 2014 the business expanded into a new state-of-the-art facility in Oranmore, making it one of Ireland’s largest and best-equipped craft breweries.

Our Beer

Established in 2006, Galway Hooker produced the original Irish Pale Ale – now the most popular style of craft beer in the country. We also produce a diverse range of core and seasonal beers both on draught and in bottles.

We consider beer to be like any other food: the fresher and less processed the better. Our beers are therefore devoid of any preservatives and are brewed using only malt, hops yeast and water.

Our Process

We are dedicated to the production of high quality, natural and full-flavoured beers

We named our beer after the iconic sailing boats used to navigate the wild North Atlantic Ocean which relentlessly pounds the west coast of Ireland.

Our beers are likewise known for their craftsmanship which imparts strength, flavour and defining characteristics. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
