Great atmosphere inside and outside the bar, it is worth visiting the back of the beer garden on a sunny day as it looks out onto the river Shannon.

Athlone is a small town with not a ton going on that we could see but don't pass it up if you want to have a pint in the definitive Irish pub. Sean's Bar dates back to 900 A.D and there is no doubt as you sit in this low-ceilinged pub, you are looking at some of the original architecture. Cozy and friendly - a must see for the experience along. Try a flight of Sean's own brews, which includes not only beer but some very nice whiskey. Enjoy!

Easy to find, very friendly service. Great music and great craic. The craft beer is well worth a try and the beer garden is worth a visit!

This is a must see if you are in Athlone. It's the oldest bar in Ireland and has lots of cool things inside. There is an outside beer garden in the rear and although they didn't have any live music while we were there, they do host live music. If you are police or fire, they collect patches so make sure to take one of your patches to share in the cases.

Good disco with bar for the younger set, live Trad music and craft beer for those seeking a quieter time. Famously welcoming bar, safe for women with onsite security, great for a quiet lunchtime coffee too, right in the heart of athlones trendy left bank,.
