This month we are excited to a pub that dates back to the Dark Ages – Sean’s bar in Athlone, County Westmeath. Dating back to 900 A.D., Sean’s Bar is Ireland’s oldest pub, and possibly the oldest pub in the world (the owners have just submitted a petition to Guinness World Records). During renovations in 1970, the walls of the bar were found to be made of “wattle and wicker” dating back to the ninth century. Old coins minted by various landlords for barter with their customers were also found. The walls and coins are on display in the National Museum, and one section of the wall remains on display inside the pub. Visitors will also notice that the floors were designed with an intentional slope so that when the nearby River Shannon would flood the water would come in through the front and run straight out the back. The bartender would then cover the wet floors in sawdust to keep patrons from slipping – a tradition that is still kept up today.
Sean's Bar, as it is known today, is a building of great antiquity which over the years has built up a world-wide reputation for its atmosphere, old bar, open fireplace, and walls covered with many ancient artifacts. Sean's is full of great character and an international clientele come to hear the best of traditional Irish music and song, or just relax in the beer garden that overlooks the Ford of Luain. Recently Sean's Bar has become famous for its own whiskey. If you haven’t visited already, you must put Ireland’s oldest pub on your bucket list!
"I absolutely love these!!! I bought them as a gift for my boyfriend (now husband). He loved every month!!! I also steal his shirts cause they are awesome!!!!!!"
"I love this subscription. The t-shirts are awesome, they are comfortable, fit well, wash well, don’t shrink or fade and the colors are awesome. I love that each month the shirts come with a post card size information card about the history of the pub and the location along with the picture. It’s really a fun subscription to have."
"Purchased this for my husband as a gift. We were both very happy with shirts. I ordered six months worth and we loved every single one of them. The quality of the shirts was better than expected. My husband really had fun opening them each month."
"This shirt was soft and thick, very comfortable. My husband always enjoys his shirts from Pub Shirt Club. The quality is great and you learn a bit about a pub every month."
"I was a member of another t-shirt of the month club. Joined this one for a change of pace. Better quality shirt, two in and not disappointed. Thanks."
"This is so neat! We love going over the included history cards of the individual bars. We've been together 12 years and he says this is the best gift I've ever gotten him. Bravo!"
"Love, love, love this! Received first shirt and was very impressed! The subscription is a gift for my husband and I can’t wait until I can give him the first shirt. I’m betting he will think our son will need a subscription for his 40th birthday!"
"I have really enjoyed all your shirts. They are made of great material and I like the technology used to apply the images. The bonus is the Post Card. I really enjoy seeing the actual Bar and read about the specifics. I hope you are doing well."
