Nice atmosphere, Usually live music but if it's early sposrts on Tv so also people alone could spent lovely time. Food from restaurant next door: good Pizza + pint of beer for 10 euro. Optimal solution to spent some hours.

if ever there was a pub correctly named this is it.... Live music, food from the resturant next door and one of the best beer gardens I've ever been in. Try visiting on a nigh "For Folk Sake" are playing, you'll have a ball.

My husband and I had a marvelous time at the Sung in Athlone at the end of April 2013. The music and refreshments were outstanding. In addtion the local people, of all ages, made us feel welcome. We couldn't have asked for a better first night in Ireland. Let's just say we closed the place.

This is a friendly pub with good crowds, good music and a wonderful "pint." No food, but plenty of calories.

a group of 7 friends, we visited this pub for our first time on Sat 9th March and had a great night, the band were as good as I've ever heard but they played everything from pop to trad and jazz. A bit small and tight but the music and atmosphere made it worthwhile.
