“A mecca for locals and tourists alike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

This was a delightful find, a half and half old world irish pub, the kind of pub tourists dream of finding, The food and service were excellent and the history and sense of community that this pub overflows with was palatable. A must see for any one passing nearby, and set in the attractive village of shannonbridge - The walk around the old fortifications are well marked and the notice boards very informative. My only disappointment was I could only stay for lunch and a couple of pints rather than prop up the bar for the night alongside the resident locals.

A credit to the family and a remarkable example of a pub seldom seen now outside of hollywood's imagination.

“Fantastic Real Ireland Pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

If you want an authentic pub in Ireland, this is it. It has wonderful food, wonderful atmosphere, and the locals hang out here. You get the real feel of Ireland here. It is a pub and a general store. It is close to Clonmacnoise if you are visiting the monastery.

“This is a "MUST SEE" place.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

A fantastic combination of old-style grocery shop/good restaurant/quaint pub. A good mixture of locals and river-users. A music session at the drop of a hat! What more could you ask for? Oh Yeah, extremely friendly and helpful staff.

“A must See!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

What can I say about Kileens but it is a must go to & experience. A very old pub/grocery "store" with the locals just hanging out. Enjoy the experience.
