Always guaranteed a great night. Always full of locals and tourists alike, great atmosphere and great staff. If you're visiting Athlone, it's worth stopping in for a pint. Also, the bathrooms are always kept extremely clean, which isn't always the case with such a busy pub.

We dropped in for a pint on a busy night in Athlone. There was nothing particularly friendly about the place, and we left pretty unimpressed after one pint.

We had a visit here at the weekend and it was great. We had kids with us but that was no problem. We enjoyed the ambience in this historic pub

I would recommend this bar for a drink. There is not much space inside but it is definitely worth a walk in

Lovely atmosphere .Some sawdust on the floor old furniture ,walls covered in old memorabilia .Way ahead of modern pubs which have no soul.

Stopped in on a tuesday night, streets seemed to be deserted, we found out quickly where everyone was, inside Sean's of course! Good music, good beer, historic pub, what else do you need! Back area seemed great for warmer nights, although they did have heaters and no one seemed to mind!

Absolutely love Seans Bar. You get the best of both worlds - inside trad music and outside either a band or DJ. Always a great atmosphere and I have never had a bad night out. Great mix of people from 18 - 80yrs old. Would recommend anyone to drop in for a drink to check it out.

Had such a great night in this bar last week! It was a Wednesday night and the music was in full swing. Proper Irish Hooley!!! Guinness is great too! Can't wait to go back again! : )
