“Comfort food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014

Have visited this place a few times now and have never been disappointed with the food. The portions are generous and, although the food menu is limited, the cottage pie and Irish stew hit the spot if you are after comfort food. The service could be better in terms of being more attentive when drinks are needed. A good place to watch rugby.

“Good pub grub”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014 via mobile

I love Kilkenny so the Shamrock was on our list of places to visit. Not the cheapest at about AUD$8.50 a pint during happy hour and kilkenny had a distinctive toffee flavour. That was a little strange. Food was typical pub grub.

“Great Pie!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014 via mobile

As a single female traveller recovering from a mountain climb and wanting a fuss free dinner I thoroughly enjoyed my beef and guiness pie! It really was delicious!

“Great atmosphere, good service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2014 via mobile

During our week we frequented this place often. Enjoying a tower of Tiger and a shish hookah while listening to the live bands inside made for an enjoyable post dinner digestion.
