About
The Shamrock Irish Bar is situated in the lively centre of Albufeira's Old Town . We can be found upstairs on the first floor next to The Hotel California shopping centre. As the only Irish Bar on the main 'bar street' (Rua Candido Dos Reis) it is popular with tourists looking for a unique experience! Throughout the season we play a variety of music including traditional Irish. Come along and join in our live sessions. If you're a budding musician yourself, we welcome you to rock out on the guitar or perhaps the tin whistle! The bar has three large screen satellite televisions, showing all premier football matches, rugby golf and horse racing. Of course we show GAA, Irish games. Fully air-conditioned - Three large screen satellite TVs - Pool table - Free Wi-fi- and of course,- Live music. Opening hours are from 12 noon on Saturday and Sundays and weekdays, 2pm to 2am (doors to the shopping centre close at 12:00am) so make sure you get there early! We are a little tricky to find, so keep an eye out for our Shamrock bar flags flying above the popular 'bar street'. Cead mile failte!

Located in the heart of the Old Town is The Shamrock Irish Pub,a pub I always look forward to visiting on any holiday I take to this sun drenched resort.
This pub looks superb, reached up a flight of stairs ,the interior is superb, nice decor and furnishings including all the Irish bric a brac adorning the walls you would expect to find in a good Irish pub,theres also plenty of seating options spread throughout this pub, tv's to enjoy the sport ,its just one really good pub.
My twin brother Stephen and I were here on a Tuesday night, pub was busy with a great atmosphere, greeted warmly by a very pleasant member of staff who served us a beer each,we opted to have that most Portuguese of beers namely bottles of Sagres beer, these were served in excellent condition being iced cold and sparkling and we just chilled out and took in the great pub we were in.
My beer was exceptional, Sagres beer is such a light,hoppy and unpretentious beer bursting with taste,very easy to drink,a beer style I really enjoy.
As we were meeting friends we only stayed for the one beer each before we moved on and as on every other visit to here we had a great time.
The Shamrock Irish Pub is easy to locate along Rua Candido Dos Reis, a street and area teeming with pubs,bars and restaurants .
Well worth checking out if your in the area.

Had a listen to a very talented musician Jonathan Wells who had a great list of songs to entertain the crowded house.

This is a friendly bar with good atmosphere, we went in particular because Barry Kearney was singing and playing his guitar.
The music was great and we all had a vary good night. Certainly would recommend a night out there with friends or family especially if you are lucky enough to find Barry playing !

Stayed a week in Albuferia went here most nights.
Great bar staff, learn what you are drinking after a few rounds.
Nice people, special mentions for Anna, Isabella and also Big Shaun who now lives in Dorset.
Danny Maverick is a marvellous entertainer lovely voice and a great sense of humour, takes the mickey out of everyone Irish, Scottish,English etc seems to know where most places and does great regional accents.
If you like a dance which my Wife and I do this is the place for you.
Saw some great dancing the man with the man bag from Liverpool and the barefooted Irish girl.
Great mixture of songs from Ireland,Scotland, England and America.
Everyone's there for a great time!
We will be back this week next year.
Cheers 🍺

Great friendly staff especially Pippa won’t forget the after 8 shot she introduced us to. The entertainment was Danny maverick, singing Irish songs abit of Jonny cash but to be honest his comedian skills where second to none I lost count of how many times I nearly wet myself at him. Will definitely be calling back the next time we visit albuferia
