Stopped here on our way to Portmagee. Had reservations for the hotel the previous night but flight was cancelled so we lost a day. We wanted to make a stop and say hello and have lunch because Birdie was so nice in all our correspondences! Lunch was fantastic, the bar was lively but quiet and what a beautiful little place!...

I must admit I was skeptical - but eating is believing. The food was really lovely. We had a whole bunch of different things - a panini, a wrap, goat cheese salad, pizza, fish cakes and even a couple of deserts. It was all really good. The service was really good and friendly. I recommend it.

Dear Sinead. We are most disappointed to read your review. What is most upsetting for us is that you did not bring this issue to our attention while you were in our bar. It is so difficult for us to do anything about it now except to respond to your review on Tripadvisor. You have left no details on this... More

Loved this little pub in Adare. We had a great meal and the owner, Sean, even came over to have a friendly chat. Find the bright pink pub just around the corner of the main street. It's worth just a short walk. On Monday and Fridays they have music, which was great. Not too loud and pleasantly entertaining. Absolutely recommend!

Thank you for taking the time to write your really lovely review. I do appreciate that there are lots of options for eating, drinking and for entertainment in Adare and I always enjoy chatting with customers who spend time with us. We are very lucky to have such great musicians who play each Monday and Friday night at 8:30 pm.... More

Ate dinner here two nights during my stay and have to say these were two of the best meals I had while in Ireland. First night I had the fish and chips, which were excellent! The fish tasted so fresh and was meaty, flaky and firm, if that's all possible at once! My second meal was the Irish stew. Absolutely... More

We spent our first night in Adare at Sean Collins. We were greeted warmly by Sean. The food was great along with the friendly service. Don't miss the live music. Sean helped us get our rental car tire flat repaired at his friend Trevors up the hill on a Saturday. We returned a second night for dinner, drinks and friendship.... More

We loved both the food and music at Sean Collins' bar. The music was traditional Irish music and the food was excellent. We were fortunate to talk some with Sean to learn more about the history of the area. All and all, a perfect place for supper.
