“Food is Fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2010

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!

Stayed at the Shamrock Inn, Lahinch for a surfing weekend and found it to be good value with friendly staff.

Great location right on the main street in town, on the doorstep of all shops/pubs and 2 mins from the sea.

Rooms a bit dated but clean. Exceptionally helpful staff sent on a sweater I had left behind me!

Full cooked breakfast included in stay and bar with pub grub downstairs as well as restaurant.

We, 4 guys mid-40s or thereabouts (from IRL, GB and D), arrived in Lahinch on spec from Germany to play some golf, and needed a roof over our heads. Shamrock Inn was the first place we checked, smack bang in the middle of main street. We looked no further. It had everything we needed. Good food, relaxed atmosphere, great hospitality, late breakfasts. We felt at home immediately. Even after we were evicted to make room for advance bookings, we still called in after golf every evening for a few pints and to say hello to Declan and Peter.

If thumbscrewed into having to make a suggestion for improvement: the mattresses weren't great. But it was still excellent value for money. And they (no, not the mattresses) made us feel like kings. What more could you ask?!

I enjoyed a brief stop at the Shamrock Inn. If you want a taste of Ireland with Irish staff and Irish hospitality, you could not go better than this. The decor is not modern but is clean and homely and the bar and dinning area welcoming. Breakfast was great and the Guinness good. Wifi in the Bedroom was convenient and free.
Lahinch is well placed for the Burren, Cliffs of Moher, and St Bridgets Well for pilgrimagers. Thanks to Declan and the team who looked after me well as I travelled alone.

I booked the Shamrock Inn over the phone on the morning of the 15th March, Lady on the phone was polite and helpfull, I enquired about arriving early she said no problem she would make sure a room would be ready on arrival. Cost was 35 PP B&B. Room 18 was big. Both the room and bathroom were clean, but perhaps dated. Breakfast the next morning was excellent, Staff were very nice and helpfull, Proprieter Alan Logue was very friendly the next morning while we were checking out. I would recommend staying at the Shamrock Inn Lahinch.

The Shamrock Inn is a great place to stay in Lahinch and its centrally located in town. We stayed on a dinner package and ended up eating here again the second night. Food is excellent (I will be going back). They had music both nights we stayed here and the place was very lively. But the best thing about the Shamrock Inn Hotel is its staff. They can't do enough for their guests.

I stayed in the Shamrock in for work. Originally i was booked into the Atlantic next door but it was being refurbished so got moved. Rooms are basic but comfy and clean. There is also a very large and powerful shower (some hotels you get a trickle) Only disappointed thing about the room is you only get 3 channels - Rte 1, Network 2 and TG4, although i had work to do so didnt mind.

Dinner in the bar was fantasic, but i did feel drinks were very expensive (almost €5 for Soda water) Staff were very friendly and helpful.

Could probably do with a better car park, but they dont have much room in the town for it.

Great central location, i stayed while everywhere was being flooded so didnt venture out but if i was here gain i would stay here.
