No good review. Neanderthal doorstaff who dissappear when Garda called. Not drunk teenagers but family party and a theft and rough handling!

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.
