Declan made us feel so welcome and was so helpful to us on checking in making sure we were happy with everything.The staff over all were excellent from start to finish. The room was very spacious...

The staff extended a very warm welcome to us all, they were unbelievably friendly & so accommodating, they made the hotel a pleasure to stay in.

Just stayed 3 nights at The Shamrock with our 2 young children in the family room. The room was a little tired but it didn't matter, was in such a great position overlooking roof tops to the sea! Also had a lovely sitting room next to our room which was lovely. Good Irish breakfast too included in the rate. Would... More

Didnt get to stay there (even though I strongly wish I had!), but got the chance to eat at their restaurant and it was the best food I had in Ireland. Ordered the Lamb and the Turkey, and for dessert had the Warm Death by Chocolate - the name says it all. Strongly recommend it.

Rooms were clean but very worn. We reserved months in advance asking for quiet rooms but were very disappointed to be right above very loud kitchen, slamming door. We complained and staff were very nice and we moved to the Atlantic. Good if you're partying and surfing and just need to flop somewhere

First, the good points. The staff were relaxed about checking in and out times. Also, the hotel is in a great location, very close to the promenade. Unfortunately the room was above the bar and we didn't get sleep until the band stopped playing at around 1 in the morning. A badly placed extractor fan meant that if we opened... More

A group of three of us stayed overnight in July 2014. When we arrived there had been some booking confusion over the beds but the guy on reception got us sorted out without question and without fuss. Lovely start. The room was clean, very spacious and right in the middle of the village. That evening we also ate at the... More
