Description: Aunty Lena's Bar situated in Adare Village arguably the prettiest village in Ireland was established in 1806 and has famously served the needs of its patrons with great success. Our highly skilled kitchen team serve delicious traditional Irish food all day and in tandem with that our bar stocks an extensive selection of beers, wines and the finest Irish whiskeys to help wash the meal down with. Our customers are a mix of local people and visiting tourists who we are more than happy to cater for with our own brand of superior customer service. Our large LCD High Definition TVs provide our customers with the perfect place to view all of the major sporting events (especially Munster, Limerick & Adare matches) live, in full comfort and with an atmosphere that you have to experience to believe. We also have live traditional music sessions every Friday night where audience participation is a must and people travel far and wide to experience this 'Lenas' Craic! We have also hosted some of the new and established live bands from around the region as we believe strongly in providing the best possible entertainment for our patrons, if they're happy then so are we!

“tasteless food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Myself and my pal passed through Adare having attended a funeral there. We were starving and popped into Aunty Lena's for " homemade food".
The service was very poor as we gave up on the waitress coming over to us and we ordered at the bar (it wasn't busy). The food arrived which was beer battered fish and chips and I had a burger. The fish was such a disappointment and we expected the chips to be home made but they weren't. The burger was the biggest let down as it was a processed burger, it was yuk! There is nothing worse than wasting a good appetitie on horrible food. In their defence they did not charge me for the burger.
The menu had a very poor choice. It was overpriced too. I hate to be so negative but I could not recommend this restaurant

“Popular pub for a reason!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

Because we enjoyed the beer and food selection as well as food quality, so much, we visited twice during our week stay in Adare. Menu is varied and reasonable. Management is willing to make modifications on entrees to meet special requests.

“Great evening atmosphere!!”

During our trip to Adare we were very excited to find such wonderful talent and great service for our evenings out. We spent two evenings enjoying the local musicians at Aunty Lena's. Great Place!
