Reviewed 24 September 2012

We called in here by chance and found the bar man very friendly so we stayed and had a pint. We came back that evening and had a lovely meal. The meal was good and we also had a glass of wine. As it was only 10 mins walk from the Lehinch Lodge we could walk to it.

Room Tip: We did not stay in this hotel we only had a meal and a few drinks.

Visited twice for dinner during our weeks holiday in Lahinch. We had a family group of 6 so mixed requirements for food. Good value dinners, bar nicely busy. Staff very friendly and accommodating to kids requests for changes to the dishes, sauces etc. Good value, lovely food, menu had the traditional bacon and cabbage as well as the more bistro style stir fry etc.
Definately worth visiting. Lahinch a great little town for a holiday break.

Was away in the Galway/Clare region for the weekend with my partner, after a trip to Ailwee caves we were abit peckish and headed for Liscannor to find very little to choose from and decided to head for Lahinch and stumbled across this fine place, from the moment we walked in we were greeted by the friendly barman, asking how we were etc

We took our seats, he gave us a moment to settle and we ordered drinks and asked if we were looking for food, showed us the menu and explained any questions we had on the menu.

After waiting little time for the starter, we thoroughly enjoyed and awaited the main course which was amazing i choose the roast beef with all the trimmings and she choose the bacon and cabbage, both dishes went down very well...

Would recommend this hotel for its friendly atmosphere and lovely food...

Thanks Shamrock Inn

Stayed here on a sat night with my gf, we were tired so went out for dinner and a pint and went for a relatively early night at midnight.

The band playing downstairs might as well have been in the room with us.

The door to the bathroom didn't close as it had swelled beyond the frame.

For the money it was the worst place we stayed on our trip round Clare Galway and mayo

Recently returned to the Shamrock Hotel for a family occassion.Unfortunately my food was very disappointing.Potatoes were wet and my veg was overcooked and again water logged , fish was tasteless.As for the Chowder and guinness forget it.You need to take advice form the Chef at your sister hotel in Liscannor , great Chowder and great food.

We didn't stay at this hotel but we ate at it last night. I can't rate it highly enough. The food was homemade, great quality, fresh produce and reasonably priced. The service was excellent. Every effort was made to find tables for people who were waiting to be served and the owner/manager was very friendly. We had our 7 year old with us and we were made feel very welcome. You would be ok with kids up to about half ten which is generally when they are getting tired anyway!
