On vacation in Ireland and happened upon The Pillar House, also known as Gibbon's Pillar House. We sat at the bar to order a pint while waiting for a table to be prepared and were graciously ushered over by a handsome, jovial man named Billy. We ordered three appetizers and two meals for four people, replying heavily on Billy's input for our decision making (the burger is amazing!). As the pints flowed, so did the conversation, and our ordering of three desserts: cheesecake of sorts, pecan pie and the oh-so-tasty banaffee pie (bananas and caramel). We enjoyed the atmosphere of the pub, and would recommend the food to anyone. Above all we enjoyed Billy. He was the kind of host who is attentive but not annoying. Should I ever return to Ballinasloe, this is the first place I'd stop.
