The architecture of the pub holds a traditional Celtic décor adorned with motifs that are looking as vintage as possible, having walls inside made out of stone and it gives you the impression that you are in a basement that looks oldish and smells old and musty. The vibe that you get in the Shamrock Irish Pub can evoke you a sense of nostalgia. The bartenders are quite communicative and have a fairly friendly approach, and the selection of drinks and food on the menu is as simple as can be, so it is made for all budgets.

Although the pub boasts an extensive range of Irish beers and drinks, they also offer international drinks options. I did notice however that there is one type of beer that they promote through a sign on the wall, namely Kilkenny Irish Beer which is basically a brown ale from the well known Guinness beer brand. When I went there with some of my classmates, I actually tried that beer which is actually that kind of beer that you get on draught and I found it really fresh and tasty.

Moreover, Shamrock Irish Pub takes pride in its commitment to supporting local artisans and producers. The sources from which they take the ingredients for the food are from nearby farms and suppliers. This ensures that each dish is crafted with the freshest and highest quality ingredients available.

What Did I enjoyed/Did not Enjoyed in the Shamrock Irish Pub?

I really do enjoyed that this pub provided a simple atmosphere where you don’t have to dress in a formal style, but more in a casual style where you actually can feel comfortable. As well, the people who frequent this pub were looking very open to me, mostly international and young people. I also liked the way the menu looked and I was pleased with the services provided by the staff there. I can say that I was also surprised by the fact that people were having fun with strangers singing karaoke because the night I went and took these pictures happened to be a karaoke night event.

I didn’t enjoy that they didn’t have a lot of chairs or tables necessarily, the bar space seemed a bit cramped, the location of the pub isn’t exactly a good choice, given that it’s next to the bus station and the pub doesn’t offer a terrace outside as they don’t have space for one. They also don’t offer a bin for smokers in front of the pub, which is a bit rubbish for the environment. The bottom line is that they could still invest in the physical appearance of the pub, even if they go for that vintage Celtic Irish concept.
