Description: Aunty Lena's Bar situated in Adare Village arguably the prettiest village in Ireland was established in 1806 and has famously served the needs of its patrons with great success. Our highly skilled kitchen team serve delicious traditional Irish food all day and in tandem with that our bar stocks an extensive selection of beers, wines and the finest Irish whiskeys to help wash the meal down with. Our customers are a mix of local people and visiting tourists who we are more than happy to cater for with our own brand of superior customer service. Our large LCD High Definition TVs provide our customers with the perfect place to view all of the major sporting events (especially Munster, Limerick & Adare matches) live, in full comfort and with an atmosphere that you have to experience to believe. We also have live traditional music sessions every Friday night where audience participation is a must and people travel far and wide to experience this 'Lenas' Craic! We have also hosted some of the new and established live bands from around the region as we believe strongly in providing the best possible entertainment for our patrons, if they're happy then so are we!

I went with a friend for an early dinner. We were both keen to see the renovations and they are in fairness lovely. We sat in the new part which is away from the main part of the pub. It was Easter Sunday but it was not overly busy and did not account for the quite bad service. One young man was more interested in the match on the tv than ensuring we had cutlery! Also he failed to take away the dirty dishes from the table. I've eaten here several times before and the food is mainly fried so I was not expecting anything else. We did complain and the manager apologised but not even a reduction in the bill was offered. Disappointing.

We stopped at Aunty Lena's for lunch while we were in Limerick and we wish we had picked somewhere else. We waited over 40 minutes for our food (the couple next to us who were sat after us finished their food before ours even arrived) and when it arrived the seafood stew was watery and the french fries had an awful, almost manure taste to them. I don't even know how else to say it. I had a steak sandwich and the steak did have a good flavor, reason I gave the restaurant three stars. My recommendation is to skip Aunty Lena's and pick another great Limerick restaurant.

As aunty Lena’s has just undergone refurbishment myself and my mom we’re excited to revisit, after waiting an unecesssary length of time to order we were then waiting a further 45 minutes for our meals which were salad and goujons 20 minutes was expected max, when we complained to the manager she was less than compensating and walked away before we had even finished speaking, the staff made many mistakes around the resteraunt dropping food to incorrect tables, and serving 1/2 tables and forgetting about the rest, unprofessional staff in need of much training. We will not be returning.
