We went here on a Monday night and it was a great night. It is a lovely, cosy wee pub and there was live music which was excellent and very entertaining. This pub is definitely well worth a visit, it was a great way to spend an evening.

Only downfall is, because it is such... More

We had 2 great nights in this bar on our recent visit to Athlone. The live music was the best in town with a great atmosphere and a good mix of people. As everywhere in Athlone, the drink is very expensive.

They had a brilliant live band on. Had a fantastic night and would definitely recommend it. Also would like to say a huge thankyou to the bar for... More

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.
