Sean's Bar is a pub in the Irish town of Athlone in central Ireland.  Although many pubs stake a claim to be the "Oldest Pub in Ireland," Sean's Bar is in fact the oldest as documented by the Guinness Book of World Records.  This pub was established in 900 AD, at which time its name was Luain's Inn.

Today, Sean's Bar sits on Athlone's Main Street, on the West Bank of the River Shannon.  The bar features live music and an eclectic assortment of memorabilia adorn its walls.  The narrow pub reaches back through the building to a back sitting room and an open beer garden behind the building.

Sean's Bar is a wonderful little Irish Pub and a great place to stop by for a pint and to chat with locals and tourists alike.
