Tricia
I am sorry you had this experience at Shamrock as we have banned all street peddlers from our premises. We have our notice up all summer on Terrace saying they are not allowed sell on our property. It can be quite dificult to control as they will chance trying to sell once i am out of sight.
Thank you for review

me and my partner have just returned from a week in Benalmadena. We visited 4 Irish bars during our stay and found this to be the best one. We arrived here on the Saturday to watch the Celtic game. When we arrived the owners Helen and Gerry were setting up inside and asked us to sit outside while the cleaned up from the night before and brought our drinks out to us. When they had finished the offered us the best seat inside to watch the game however we preferred to sit outside. They set up a tab for us and during the game Gerry came out with a large sun umbrella and positioned it so there was no glare on the tv. Both were every friendly and spoke to us during half time and after the game. We were both drinking strong bow and Guinness and found this to be very good prices (approx. 8 drinks and 2 packets of crisps for 30 euros). Our only criticism is that they do not serve food however they are very close to the main front where there is a variety of restaurants. We did try to go back to this bar on the Wednesday however it was closed.

Hi All, I'm just home this afternoon after spending a great relaxing week in Benalmedna with my Son Hugh. When we visited the Shamrock Bar we were greeted bya lovely lady behind the bar who had a very warm welcome smile for me and Hugh. She told me her name was Helen and that her husband Gerry who was beside her was the bar owner, immediately I knew I had found the perfect spot to enjoy a few drinks. The bar itself was lovely and clean and and the service from Gerry and Helen was excellent. The atmosphere was extreamely friendly. No loud music playing so everybody could enjoy a good conversation. Both Gerry and Helen are lovely people and I would strongly recommend The Shamrock Bar to anybody who enjoys good beer and craic.
