First visited this pub back in Nov 2011 while there at a family wedding. Really enjoyed the pub and Pat, Jane & Dave are extremely friendly.
Then went back again this year with the family and young kids. Pat was very welcoming to both adults and kids. We arrived into the pub early one night and the kids were given colouring book sets each. Truly a nice touch and really appreciated it.
Always dropped in for a drink each day/evening and would highly recommend to all.
And must agree with previous reports, the pub is spotless.

Loved Hickeys Irish Bar in Alvor; the best Irish Bar abroad that I was ever in. Fantastic atmosphere; Pat the owner you could not meet a nicer genuine person. Recommended by friends and went to Hickeys every night after that. No music; great craic, good beer, very clean and the toilets are spotless. Only drank in this pub so I do not know anything about food.

Do not visit this town without sampling the simplness of just a good pub run well were you will be welcomed and enjoy a good pint and the art of conversation. Pat, Jane and Dave are genuine people enjoying life and thier customers. Can't wait until I return again.

We have just got back from our holiday in Alvor and called into this pub for a drink whilst we were walking round , i asked Pat the owner if he could make my wife a special drink for her birthday ,this he did and plus he had the pub sing happy birthday ,he would not take any money for the drink at all and wished us well , we ended up stopping in the bar for more drinks ,its a lovely pub where you can sit and chat to the rest of the customers in a warm friendly atmosphere .Once again Pat thanks very much and hope to have many more visits in the years to come .
