Richard Grace’s Bar, Athlone – a great venue for home cooked Irish Food and Hospitality!
Set in a building with an impeccable history as a hospitable hostelry, Richard Grace’s Bar, open on Sean Costello Street in Athlone for nearly 2 years now has established itself as one of the leading venues in the town for great food and hospitality.
The well-known Richard Grace’s Bar, is a busy, successful bar and food venue, that is a much-loved pub where hospitality, a smile, good food and atmosphere are always waiting for you.
The core of Richard Grace’s is the main bar with its long, low, traditional format, beamed ceiling, panelling and flagged and wooden floor. A cosy snug at the front has a rugby focus, with framed jerseys and plasma screens for those all- important sporting occasions, and there are also screens dotted throughout the main bar, showing all those important sporting events.
Richard Grace himself, after whom the bar is named, is a famous local Athlone hero, a Jacobite Colonel who defended the city against the forces of the Crown in 1690. When called upon to surrender, he fired a pistol over the messenger's head, and declared "These are my terms; these only will I give or receive; and when my provisions are consumed, I will defend till I eat my old boots!"
The Colonel needn’t worry about old boots, as he would be well fed if he showed up in Richard Grace’s Bar these days! Under the guidance of Kerry man, Gavin O’Shea, Richard Grace’s has an extensive food offering from breakfast to lunch and dinner are served in Richard Grace’s Bar, with service to the table and wide-ranging menus showcasing Irish dishes and fine local produce.

AWARDS & PRIZES

Good Food Ireland is an industry driven food tourism organisation which was established in November 2006. Many good food operators in a cross-section of establishments all around the island from restaurants to accommodation, pubs to food shops to cookery schools wanted to be recognised and endorsed for their commitment to using Irish, local and artisan food produce. They wanted to share experiences and be cooperatively marketed to the domestic and international tourist. Agriculture and Tourism, two vital economies for Ireland have so much in common and are yet so far apart. Through Good Food Ireland the industry from both these sectors share a common belief and come together as one. Good Food Ireland brings you the visitor or domestic consumer what we believe is the only way to get a true taste of Ireland. In 1900, André Michelin published the first edition of a guide to France to help drivers maintain their cars, find decent lodging, and eat well while touring. In 1926, the guide introduced the star to note good cooking; two and three stars were added in the early 1930s. The guide awards one to three stars to a small number of restaurants of outstanding quality.
