Description: Established in 1846 Bill Chawke's Bar, located in the heart of Adare Village, Co. Limerick is a fine traditional bar with a great reputation for providing some of the best hospitality around. Our recently refurbished bar is an excellent place to watch our local Adare GAA heroes and all the other major sporting events live on our LCD High Definition TVs. Our live weekly traditional music sessions are famous and bring a wealth of musicians and music lovers through our doors. Our kitchen serves delicious traditional fare every day and customers keep coming back to us for a bite to eat or simply relax with a pint or glass of their favourite tipple. We have a truly superior beer garden which is the envy of every pub in the county; we just wish we could 'serve up' good weather for our customers to relax in it on those soft Irish summer days and not need one of our waterproof parasols. Our beer garden also has state of the art BBQ facilities and is a favourite with locals and visitors who like to dine and entertain al fresco whatever the occasion. Good quality service, delicious food and a friendly and welcoming atmosphere is what we are all about and we think we deliver, in spades! Awarded the Prestigious Licensing World Country Bar of the Year 2010!

We spent Thursday night enthralled with fine traditional Irish music, good food and great beer. We recommend Thursday's music venue to everyone visiting Adare. It turned our visit into magic. Great time!

This pub has a warm and cosy feel to it, a bus group of us had the pleasure of stopping here last Sunday evening for a bite to eat and a few drinks. The welcome and service we received was excellent, from the bar to restaurant staff all were very friendly and efficent. The bar menu is good and the food was of good standard and very good value, everyone was very impressed with their meal and all agreed that it will be a definite stop on their next trip through Adare. Thanks to Alan the manager and his very professional team in Bill Chawkes.

Had a nice few drinks at this Irish pub on a Thursday evening when there were some Irish musicians playing, awesome. But the barman was excellent. The service was so personal and the pub had a great feel to it. We just loved it !!!!!!

We just returned home from 8 days in Ireland with family and friends. We stopped by for a pint on the day we arrived in Adare and couldn't have gotten a warmer welcome from the bartender and manager at Bill Chawke's Bar. We were invited to join the bus to attend the championship hurling match with the group from the bar, which decided to attend because we had never seen hurling before. Everyone in our group (12 total) had a great day. We also stopped by for Irish music in the evening one night and drinks and terrific food on another evening. This pub simply can't be beat for welcoming new comers to town. I was even serenaded by a local who sang for us. We would highly recommend this establishment to anyone traveling to Adare.

My family and I just recently visited Ireland for the first time, and we visited Bill Chawke's Bar. We had had a fantastic welcome from the entire staff as well as from all the patrons. We enjoyed the food, the pints, the conversations, the sing-a-longs, the joke telling and the amazing friendliness of all that were there. The local folks made you feel very welcome, so much so, that it felt as if you had known them all your life. Great time, great people, and great place. I will certainly make this a priority visit for the next time I cross the pond.
