A group of 18 of us reserved an area in The Snug for the afternoon of a hen party this weekend. We cannot thank the team enough for how well they looked after us! Right through from our initial enquiry to the day itself they went above and beyond at every turn, had the craic with us and it never for a second felt like anything was an inconvenience for them (which is no easy feat with a group of nordies requesting every cocktail under the sun!). The food options, provided by Pavarottis restaurant next door, were fantastic too and helped keep us going before we headed out for dinner in the evening. I couldn't recommend The Snug enough for any groups heading to Athlone, or even just people looking to head in for a few pints and a match. Thank you so much guys, we will 100% be back next time we're in Athlone!

The BEST spot for a hen weekend! A group of 15 of us did the Cube Athlone and a Cocktail Class in the Snug and the staff could NOT have been more craic and as helpful as they were. Barry helped us with everything we needed and put up with a loud bunch of women like a pro! Haha 😂 Gillian was the biggest help organising the weekend and was on call for anything we needed! We will definitely all be back and will DEFINITELY be calling on Gillian again. Thanks a million guys! 👰🏼😃

Couldn't rave above this little gem enough , 16 women on a hen night and the welcome we got from MICHEAL 🤣, Diarmuid and Gillian was unbelievable. They made sure all the women were safe and enjoying themselves all night from the minute we walked in at 3 pm down to Diarmuid kindly getting us all back to the hotels by going out in the rain and flagging down taxis and told us to wait inside so we don't get drenched which was such a lovely thing to do near 1am. So again to the best pub we have ever set foot in Ireland not just Athlone 🇮🇪 thank you and for anyone else on a stag - hen or a party, please don't waste your time going anywhere else. The reception outside the other local doors was enough to put us off, but I can gaurentee you, you will be welcome with open arms in the snug. Until next time guys. Ps UP THE LILYS 🏐🤣

We attended a hen party in the bar and were enjoying drinks. A staff member asked us to move in our chairs closer to the table and he helped move them in. One of the chairs hit off the table and spilt a full round of cocktails that the bar woman had dropped over. We asked the staff member could the drinks be replaced as it was an accident and he had helped to move chairs but he said it wasn’t “bar policy” to replace them. We asked to speak to the manager and the staff member said he was the owner. This staff member was very rude to us and we left the bar immediately because of how we were treated.

Cannot recommended this pub enough!! Dermot and Michael have to be the best, most accommodating hosts you can get. We started off our weekend here on our trip to Athlone and they made sure we had the best weekend ever. We came back the next day and they remembered us from the night before. They went above and beyond for us and even saved our bank card. We would recommend this bar highly it’s the best bar in Athlone with such a welcoming atmosphere.
Thank you guys so much for everything. We will definitely be back soon and please have the microphone ready for us.
Thanks again.
