POTD: Sean’s

Athlone, County Roscommon

Sean’s Bar claims to be the oldest pub in Europe, with a certificate from the Guinness World Records to back it up. The building dates back to 900 A.D. and they have a continuous record of the owners of the bar since that time (including a short stint of ownership by Boy George). It seemed like a good place to enjoy our first pint of Guinness in Ireland. The large collection of U.S. dollar bills taped above the bar let us know we are not the first Americans to have a drink there.
