Friendly and great food!

We came here our first night in Adare. It was Tuesday so it was fairly quiet. The atmosphere was perfect felt more cozy than a typical pub.

Very good pub food and the friendliest staff separates Sean Collins from the other pubs in Adare. The food that all 4 of the people in my group had was very good, they poured a great pint of Guinness, and the staff was great. Sean, the owner, came by and talked to us and all the other patrons. He ask... More

If you a visiting Ireland like we did from the U.S. then Sean's bar is a great place to go an chat with the locals. They'll tell you about the area and anything else you want to know. The bar usually has other visitors in it that are easily spotted so it makes the atmosphere a little easier for the... More

We were passing through Adare and decided to stop at Sean Collins based on their appearance on the 'at your service' tv show. The bar is beautiful, nicely decorated and very clean. The owner served us, a very nice man to our kids, who was very flexible with our order. The food was delicious, great portions and very tasty. We... More

Nice place in Adare. Usually stop in on the way to Kerry from Dublin. Have really enjoyed the sirloin steak, panini, sandwiches, Guinness. Batter is a bit hard on the battered cod so would skip that next time. Enjoy the atmosphere and the staff great.

What a fantastic afternoon/evening. Spoke with Sean about having a gathering and he was more than helpful. Got us a traditional Irish band for over 3 hours and put on finger food complimentary. Big thanks to Sean and the team - great for post wedding celebrations.

We ate at Sean Collins one night after a long day of sightseeing. The food we ordered was decent pub food but mostly unremarkable. My brother in law had a steak and my husband and I ordered fish and chips. The service was slow, but typical for an Irish pub. We enjoyed a few pints of Guinness and the Irish... More
