Thus centrally located Pub offers a wide range of music at the weekends and holidays. The rustic décor is complimented by its friendly staff and owners. One of the few pubs in Athenry with a pool table.

Dowlings has what can only be described as an absolutely fantastic pint. Very friendly staff in a beautiful setting. A well finished pub it's a great spot for a quiet pint or a night out. Its a credit to the owners. Cannot recommend it enough.
