If you want a real atmosphere, delicious craft beer, then go to Ireland. After all, there – the oldest pub on the planet. This is Bar Sean, which is located in the city of Athlone in central Ireland, writes The Vintage News
It has been working since 900. The bar is officially listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the oldest pub in the world.
The bar was opened by a local merchant after the hotel was founded. He always brought visitors first to the bar, and then to the hotel.
They say that it was from the hotel and bar that the settlement of this territory began. Noisy trade, which accompanied the expansion of the city, continued to provide a permanent clientele for the hotel.
The fact that the bar has such a long history was discovered only in the late 1960s. It was found that the remains of the wall are covered with wicker clay, which dated the beginning of the 10th century.
Although the present building has been rebuilt, repaired and modernized over the centuries, it still contains many historical elements that are hundreds of years old.
It is believed that the pub’s sloping floor was specially created to save the building from flooding. Would you like to visit this pub?
