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

Don't know what happened to other reviewers...our barmaid was great. And so was our food....fish and chips, bangers and mash, tomato soup. Comfortable stools, friendly atmosphere. Don't hesitate to give it a try.

Beer is fresh; loved the Smithwick’s Stout. Food was ok – lots of Panini’s on the meu; but we stopped for the beer and to catch World Cup Soccer/Football on the TV. For last round we each grabbed two beers and they let us stay after closing to finish the game. Very nice of them.

The waitress suggested we went for the cabbage + bacon and the Jack Daniels chicken salad. Such a good suggestion. We went back the second night and had leak + potato soup and cesar salad, very good again.

We had tea in the morning and on our way back that evening there was a choice of beer battered fish, and burgers. I can honestly say that the fish & chips were second to none, and although the place... More
