Called in with family to watch the Leinster game. Location is upstairs and could definitely do with some modernisation. Toilets didn't even have seats to pull down. Must improve.

Lovely staff, drinks good (and cheap!), Damian is either smiling behind the bar, singing his heart out on stage for the appreciative dancing folk, or getting you up to join him if you have a little talent. Non-sectarian, this is a family pub with friendly...More

The Shamrock always opens officially for the biggest party of the year, St Patrick’s Day, March 17th. We will be open from then on including Easter. It’s a nice time of year and we look forward to seeing you in 2018.
