“one of the best pubs in Ireland”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

If you want an authentic Irish pub atmosphere this is the pub. About a 3/4 mile walk from our Shelmalier B&B the authentic Irish pub decor, extremely friendly staff, and great food make this a "must visit" stop on a visit to Athlone.

“Very Satisfied”
Reviewed 6 August 2014 via mobile

Called in while passing through Athlone and was very happy with the dinners we were served. The meals were tasty and filling while the service was quick. 'Roast of the Day' €9.90.
