“Best Stew In Ireland!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 November 2013

I was staying at the Adare Manor a couple weeks ago and traveled all over Ireland ordering stew in different restaurants and pubs, by far Sean Collins was my favorite! (I even went back there the night before we left to have it one more time!) There is a welcoming and cozy atmosphere at Sean's and they also have a couple Irishmen playing music a couple nights a week. The bar is clean and has a wonderful staff. Sean was sure to visit with each group of guests before they left adding a nice personal touch. Thank you for making our visit to Adare even more wonderful than expected!

“Best Irish Beef Stew EVER”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2013

My husband and I stayed in the Adare Manor Villas for our honeymoon in Ireland. After driving across the country from Dublin, we wanted to eat local and were told that Sean's was a good place for dinner. Was that ever an understatement! It was the best beef stew I have ever eaten (and we are from New Jersey, so we are used to really good food). We ended up going back two more times during our stay to get the beef stew!

Aside from the delicious food and comfortable atmosphere (our favorite spot was in front of the coal-burning stove that Sean said was his grandmother's functional cast iron kitchen stove), Sean was so friendly and welcoming. He asked about our travel plans and suggested that we tour the Dingle Peninsula because of the stunning views of the dramatic landscape. We heeded his advice and it ended up being the best day of our trip. Our best photos are from the day we toured the Dingle Peninsula and Dingle Town!

I highly, highly recommend going to this bar early in your trip because you will most certainly want to go again before you return home!

“Not Your Ordinary Pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2013

We went to Sean's for Friday night music and dinner. Music was a three piece ensemble that played wonderful Irish tunes at a volume that still allowed you to hear the person across the table from you. We thought the menu was varied and we had great Irish stew, fish and chips, pasta, etc. This place is a little more "upscale" than the average pub in the area. Sean visited with the customers and there seemed to be a nice mix of locals and a few tourists, like ourselves. Definitely give this place a try.

“Perfect Pub Experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 November 2013

Sean Collins Pub was by far the most welcoming pub we came across during our Irish vacation. Sean pours some of the best pints of Guinness in the country (and believe me, we sampled several pints throughout Ireland!). The pub offers fabulous pizzas and the Irish stew was amazing. Sean was very welcoming to our children, which was very important to us. We chose Sean Collins for our "night out" without children as well, since we liked it so much! Perfect!

“Sean Collins - Our Favorite!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 November 2013

Sean's was our favorite pub in Adare. We always felt welcomed, comfortable, and well fed. We developed a personal relationship with Sean which gave us a 360 degree view of someone who is a multi-generational resident of Adare. Thank you Sean, family, staff!
