A large jug of miwadi probably isn't the first thing many appreciate but when you have a car load of hungry tired people big and small it's a lot! We arrived after a visit to Santa and as soon as we sat down this was offered and the whole experience was super from then. Quick tasty food without a rush.... More

I live about 15 minutes so I try to get to Pat Collins at least once a week\every day days or so. Great pub grub, the fish and chip, bacon and cabbage and chicken wings being my favourites! The Guinness is mighty here, very solid and consistent. Try here between 6 - 8pm and you will meet the locals at... More

The food was absolutely wonderful, accompanied by the warmest-friendliest atmosphere! You must go here and order the profiterole with a hard cider. We tried the beef stew and it was impeccable. A MUST spot for you.

Stopped in for a drink and was treated like a friend. Very nice place and people. A good place for a pint and a Irish car bomb.

It arrived piping hot and looked amazing with a selection of 5 –yes 5 !-vegetables,- courgette, sweet potato, green beans, carrots and parsnip all... More

A group of us stopped by Pat Collin's bar in Adare recently to grab a quick bite. It's a fantastically traditional pub and we were greeted with a warm welcome. It was very quiet as it was early evening but a roaring fire and a few locals at the bar gave the place a laid back atmosphere. We didn't have... More

I visited Pat Collins Bar/Restaurant mid-week, for a few drinks & dinner. It was very busy, mainly with locals. The atmosphere was good, service brisk & friendly. I ordered a 12oz sirloin steak, which was cooked perfectly, and of very good quality. If your looking for a good quality pub/restaurant, look no further.

Lovely pub atmosphere and delicious food. I had the goat cheese crostini with carmelized onions and the sea bass special. The fish was perfectly cooked, served on a sweet corn puree with sautéed sea grass. Quite possibly the best preparation I've ever eaten. Not the best table service, but the folks behind the bar were quite nice.

In a town which is very tourist-orientated it was refreshing to find a fair crowd of locals in Pat Collins Bar. We were made to feel very welcome and we're even treated to some fantastic impromptu singing towards the end of the evening. Michael, the landlord (son of Pat) was busy making sure everyone was being looked after. The Guinness... More

Very popular it seems thevplacevwzs full of patrons when we entered. Got a table next to a childs highchair which had not been cleaned from the last occupant. I had the chicken burger and chips, chips were precut not freshly cut in the premises. Salad was minimal as was the chicken. A small glass of coke was €2:40 which a... More
