I have been visiting this town since 1984, a meal at this restaurant is not to be missed. You get good solid food, well cooked and presented with friendly service. Recommended for family dining and just off the town square.

Our server was friendly and helpful, she answered all our queries on food allergies and dietary requirements efficiently. Unfortunately the coffee was bitter and lukewarm, the rest of the breakfast was... More

We had dinner here on a Friday night recently and it was very average. I had the Monkfish Goujons. There were around 4 on the plate and the rest of it was filled with chips and a bit of salad.

Food can be nice enough here but also can be poor. I would find the lady owner to be loud and abrupt which is a little off putting. Portion sizes are big, but food in genera only average.

We love Shamrock. the food is great, coffee also and the staff are friendly. the couple who own it are on site and show interest in their clientele. Always say hello and make customers feel welcome. A well run restaurant with good food and good prices.

Eleven family members from England recently stayed in Dungarvan for 5 nights. On the last night we discovered this restaurant. In it I had the best meal of my trip to Ireland. The steak pie was out of this world!!! We all said that we wished we had found this restaurant earlier.

We had brunch one morning when we stayed in Dungarvan in The Shamrock. We have 2 kids and 2 prams so it can be uncomfortable entering a place sometimes, but we were made feel very welcome in The Shamrock, the food and service were both excellent. I would definitely recommend and go again.
