While staying in Adare for some period of time Lena's became my home away from home. Wonderful staff led by the one and only "shocks"! I have eaten about everything on the menu, Steak is great as well as the Bangers and mash and wraps. My brother would often order the "Jody special", wings with no sauce with a bottle... More

Went for evening meal with some friends and really enjoyed the experience. Service at the table, just tell the bar man you are in for a meal, simple straight forward menu. Very easy going with good food and good service.

We had an hour lunch break from our tour bus. They had good fish and chips as well as American dishes and some Italian. They had the regular Irish beers plus a local hop beer. The service was very good snd prices reasonable.

Last night.... In Ireland with good friends.. worst meal ever.....fish and chips inedible...soup watery....not the typical incredible service in Ireland. Please do not waste your time....we are in Ireland every year...We were embarrassed that that was the last time our friends ate in Ireland.

Aunty's is a fine Irish pub from central casting, but when Gerry and the lads are playing live--from traditional Irish tunes to country and blues--the experience is over the top. Authentic, fun, and engaging the crowd.
