Sean’s Bar is a pub in Athlone, Ireland. It claims to be the oldest pub in Ireland, dating back to 900, and received a certificate in 2004 from Guinness World Records repeating the claim.
It is is located on Main Street, Athlone, on the West Bank of the River Shannon, and was originally known as Luain’s Inn. It is often colloquially referred to simply as Sean’s.
During renovations in 1970, the walls of the bar were found to be made of wattle and wicker, dating back to the tenth century. According to Frommer’s travel guide, the bar holds records of every owner since 900 A.D., including when Boy George owned it briefly in 1987.
