Review of An Tain

An Tain
Ranked #6 of 23 Restaurants in Ballinasloe
Cuisines: Irish
Description: more a bar than a restaurant, but there wasn't an option to say that! Not sure they even serve food, but great live Irish Music

popped in here while waiting for the wife to come back from the post office!!! a long queue. Just a quick note to say ballinasloe gets a bad press some time but on this occasion everyone was very welcoming and very warm. the place has a good charm and although not as bustling as loughrea you do get a feeling from the local shops that they are trying to attract people in. With plenty of regular events going on this pub its going to get more visits from me in the future.

Had a drink here while visiting Ballinasloe. There was a trad band playing. They were quite good. The place was packed which added to the atmosphere. Seevice good. Would visit again.

I stopped by this pub for a pint when I last visited Ballinasloe.
The service was lacking any enthusiasm. The price I paid for 2 pints of Guinness was much higher than other pubs in the area.
As there are only 12 of the 43 pubs in Ballinasloe still operating I would think pricing and service might have been more welcoming. Other pubs in town were more cheerful and their prices more reasonable.

Had a lovely stop here recently, great atmosphere, excellent service, and we returned later to find an Irish Music session in full swing. Well worth a visit !
