We ate at the bar which was a mistake as it really isn't large enough to accommodate plates (bar are closest to the door) and we struggled to get to our food. The food was ok, I had a... More

Our table was gone alright as the pub was packed but within minutes another table was sourced for 12 very happy ladies. The staff especially Barman Ronan were friendly and made our night. To top...

Visited Chawke's after dinner one evening for drinks and traditional music. We had a great time but can't speak to the food!

We hung out in the back courtyard where you could smoke and it was a little bit more quiet. Inside was a DJ, we were hoping for live music. When we left he was playing Mambo #5, just not right.

During that time we frequented a number of pubs and ate most of our lunches and dinners at those types of establishments. We also visited them for the occasional Guinness or other beverage efore or after dinner.during the days and evenings,... More

A group of us visited on a Saturday night - there was a DJ in the back playing fun tunes. We had fun dancing and great friendly staff. Didn't sample any food, fun atmosphere - will go back.

Bill Chawke's Bar is the best place in Adare for live music on Thursday nights. The lovely group of local musicians never failed to surprise us with their musical selections. They played traditional Irish songs as well as their own Irish versions of Sweet Child of Mine, The Entertainer and more. Some education was even provided as Jerry told us... More
