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

Had dinner in the Shamrock last month and must say that it beats all opposition for best place to eat in Lahinch at the moment. The warm atmosphere aided by the new stove really makes you feel at home, even when it's on during the summer! The recent facelift the place got makes it look brand new with all the... More

I stayed here with my boyfriend at the end of December 2013 for new years. I couldn't fault the staff at all, they were all extremely friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and spacious, the only fault I found was that the room was cold as it only had one small radiator. The food in the bar was... More

Enjoyed the stay, old fashioned hotel. Cold on arrival we had to ask to get the heating on. As they were expecting us I would have liked a warm room. Everything was clean just dated and I think in need of a refurb however I suppose it is traditional. Breakfast was good. I left my straightners but when my friend... More
