Upon visiting the lovely town of Athlone, I happened upon Larrys bar. I was taken aback by the friendly staff and atmosphere. I fully recommend any person visiting the town to enjoy the ambiance and willingness to please in the pub. I am factoring in the pub as a reason for me to return in the future. Thumbs up!!!

We discovered Larry’s Bar while walking around Athlone during a one-day stay. We saw they were going to have music that night, a blues session; so we went back that evening. This turned out to have been a great idea. We had a wonderful time. This was one of the friendliest places we’ve ever gone to. The Guinness flowed and the music was great. We were introduced to the musicians, Eamon and Martin, who were actually really good. Sitting at the bar, other patrons gave us all kinds of advice and suggestions about traveling in Ireland; as well as other stories. Behind the bar, Keiran made sure that we never ran dry. They were all amused that my name actually is Larry, and when we were near the end of our night, Michelle introduced herself and gave me a “Larry’s Pub” polo shirt that I proudly wear here in the USA. We will return when possible. Don’t miss this place!
