Small bar. Enjoyed a pint of lager. There are a few tables out front with chairs if you don't want to sit inside. There is also a beer garden. There was live music tonight and the guys playing were good. It was more hit music but did seem to have a few "traditional Irish" songs mixed in.

Visited here today, the weather was beautiful so we sat outside for a drink. The waiter was very friendly and sat down to have a hat with us which made us feel very welcome. Would definitely return when next in Athlone.
