Description: Established in 1846 Bill Chawke's Bar, located in the heart of Adare Village, Co. Limerick is a fine traditional bar with a great reputation for providing some of the best hospitality around. Our recently refurbished bar is an excellent place to watch our local Adare GAA heroes and all the other major sporting events live on our LCD High Definition TVs. Our live weekly traditional music sessions are famous and bring a wealth of musicians and music lovers through our doors. Our kitchen serves delicious traditional fare every day and customers keep coming back to us for a bite to eat or simply relax with a pint or glass of their favourite tipple. We have a truly superior beer garden which is the envy of every pub in the county; we just wish we could 'serve up' good weather for our customers to relax in it on those soft Irish summer days and not need one of our waterproof parasols. Our beer garden also has state of the art BBQ facilities and is a favourite with locals and visitors who like to dine and entertain al fresco whatever the occasion. Good quality service, delicious food and a friendly and welcoming atmosphere is what we are all about and we think we deliver, in spades! Awarded the Prestigious Licensing World Country Bar of the Year 2010!

the others got toast , i asked for not toasted bread,

Im guessing because it wasn't toasted it was easy for me to spot that the side of the slices of my bread were covered in mould!

I was then given fresh bread, but still paid for my breakfast.

In this day and age, c'mon... mouldy bread??!

My son, David and I have visited Chawke's Bar several times during the 6 visits to Adare, Ireland. Some of the bartenders have been there a long time. They always remember us which is nice. There was a group of about 6 men there, all local I'm sure. They were having a good time and were singing loud with zest. It's good to see men can sing in a pub. In America they seem to self conscious to sing.
This brings to my mind that singing is a part of Ireland's culture. I believe the owner also owns Aunty Lena's. Also a great Pub. Incidentally they have a very nice smoking facility outside and attached to the pub.

My wife and I visited Ireland with our friends Dan and Nancy and brought them here for a pint while staying a night in Adare last March. We just had one beer but enjoyed our visit. Kim and I visited this pub several times during our 2009 visit and enjoyed it. One of those nights there was music and we sat right next to the musicians. The bartenders are very friendly and there is an interesting mix of customers- I THINK mostly local folks. Certainly they were enjoying the Irish sports on TV in March. While we've enjoyed all of the pubs we've visited in Adare, Bill Chawke's is my favorite.
