Gertie Browne's Pub
Situated in the centre of Athlone, just a minute or two's walk from the bank of the River Shannon, Gertie Browne’s is rumoured to have the best pint of Guinness in Athlone. When you walk through the doors of this traditional pub, you immediately get a sense that you are welcome there. That's not surprising as from as early as the 10th or 11th centuries, Gertie Browne's has been a hostelry of some sort. The pub itself date's back over 1,000 years, initially acting as a resting point for those travelling west while also providing them with a place to house their horse-drawn carriages for the night
Tongue’n’groove walls, pitch-pine counters and genuine salvaged memorabilia all give this emporium a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere.
