Another one bites the dust

So sorry to hear that Hickeys bar has closed for good.Many a good night spent here over the las t 11 years when it first opened.Pat was and still is a gentleman.When he was there he always would come over for a chat and introduce himself if it was your first visit no matter where you were from.All staff were friendly.Good luck to him in any future ventures.

A small piece of Ireland in Alvor
Oct 2019 • Business
I’ve never met Pat Hickey, the owner of Hickey’s Irish pub in Alvor, but as a fellow small business owner in neighboring Lagos, we (my family and I) reached out to him out of the blue late last night for help with a small commercial problem. Without hesitation, and without ever having met or heard of us before, Pat and Sean made arrangements to help.

Pat...you are a true gentleman! THANK YOU for your kindness and hospitality.

Not that big a place always very busy though worth a visit. Lot of Irish people in it. It’s like a local for them

Good food and great Guinness. Entertainment at weekends.
Well worth a visit.Easily accessible on main thoroughfare of San Pedro.
If you have children, they will love the modern play area just across the road.

Not great at all.
Sep 2019 • Friends
The clientelle's chatter is so loud you won't be able to hear a thing in the racket. Gets quite stuffy and just not a comfortable place to be in at all. Beware, as noted by other reviewers, some of the client's do get very grumpy at times. That is known.

If the noise gets too much for you though,  the owner is happy to have customers stand outside in the street itself. It is more comfortable to stand out on the street to be honest.

Unfortunately, the place is not clean. I found a shiney fat black Cockroach in the toilet last time. Shame about that.

never again
Sep 2019
I have been a regular to Alvor for the past 12 years and pop into hickeys every now and then, always thought it was a nice little bar. However on my most recent visit last week i went in with wife and my friends. My friend sat at the bar whilst ordering our drinks when he was threatened by a customer who was returning to the bar to "get out of his seat, he has been sat there all day". After my friend tried to politely explain he was just sat there whilst waiting to be served, this was followed by us being called "English Bast##ds."
i politely explained we were Welsh and we sat elsewhere,whilst being stared at constantly, we had one drink and left.

Definitely worth stopping for a pint and a chat
Aug 2019 • Couples
This pub was the only reason we decided to stay in Alvor. We decided to have a quick drink before we went back to hotel to change for the night . Then my boyfriend met someone he knew immediately (what’s the chances eh) super friendly staff the pub was packed and three other Irish pubs nearby practically empty. Definitely worth a pint and a chat.
