Failtè go dtì na Beanna.
The Pins, known to many as The Twelve Pins / Na Beanna Beola was first established in the early 1800’s in this beautiful village of Barna on this very site. There have been many a story told here and many the subject matter created here for a story to be told. One story has it that the old building had a curse placed upon it and that the proprietor of the building would never have ‘too much luck’. There are many other stories like this which we hope to retell over time in this ‘new’ Pins – minus the curse (fingers crossed)! Today’s clientele is a mixture of chatty locals who have come here for generations, business people, sightseers, tourists and ‘personalities’ – all friends who have not yet met. Our goal is to bring you good food
, good drink
, good craic, good trad. and jazz
Please do give us your feedback on everything as we do value it.
We hope you will enjoy yourself at The Pins.

The hub of Bearna Village, Galway, and a destination in its own right, The Pins Gastro Bar and Bistro Barna is loved by locals and overnight guests alike. In addition to an incredible food menu, Sunday lunch and Barbeque menu, there is an equally incredible selection of cocktails, whiskies, cognacs, armagnacs, rums, bourbons, vodkas and countless other fine spirits and beers. The Pins is a great place to enjoy good coffees, interesting teas, breads 'just out of the oven' from the on-site bakery and tantalising local produce infused with flavours from around the world. You can surf the net for free with our Wifi, meet the locals, catch a Traditional Irish Music session and see Galway's finest Jazz acts and maybe even pick up a bit of Gaelige.
This is the life... Irish Style.
