Just spent a great time in Shenanigans, the new name for what was formerly the Porterhouse. Newly remodeled to enhance the building's charm and character. Comfortable and welcoming. The Guinness was well-poured. The bartender/owner, TJ, is friendly, fun & easy to talk with. This place is great for a couple or a group of friends... tourist or local. Highly recommend!

After plans falling through we wandered into the Porterhouse, the steak sandwich was really good but the service is what made this place. Ciara was an absolute dote and I left with recommendations on where to go tomorrow. I am fairly sure I will always pop in when Athlone after this visit!

Just a midweek break. Clean and friendly. T j the barman was extremely friendly. Rita drank from a jam jar which was lovely but then T J came up with the strawberry daiquiri. To die for.
