Great ambiance at night. The live music is fun and all our guests had a good time laughing and singing along. Definitely one of the best places to go for a pint in the village.

While I was having dinner with my sister and nieces, my husband and 3 others visited Lena's. Beers and wine were ordered and they sat back and table watched. Everyone seemed to be having a fun time. The decor inside is really nice and the wait staff were attentive. There were a few hen parties that day and the girls... More

I've traveled to Ireland twice...once in 2010 and again in 2014. Both times we stopped to eat at Aunty Lena's, and both times we thoroughly enjoyed it. Our first visit in 2010 we were staying at Adare Manor, so we ate at Aunty Lena's twice. Our second visit in 2014 wasn't at Adare, but we made sure to go back... More

We ended up here a couple times while staying in Adare. The first was a Friday night and it was awesome ! Live music, singing and a really good time ! Additional visits were with out the live music but the food was really good. I particularly liked the Caledonian beer on tap ( it's Scottish).

I sat at a table for 15 minutes, other people came in and were served before me. I left the restaurant. Too many good restaurants in Adare to be settling. Others tell me it is great.

My first meal in Adare where I spent two weeks visiting a friend was at Aunty Lena's. No other meal Ireland topped it. My local friend had bangers and mash and pronounced it delicious. He suggested that I try bacon and cabbage. It was a positive surprise. What came was much better and tastier than I expected. Irish bacon looks... More
