Attraction details
Owner description: 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!

Hi Tom & Colette,
Glad that you enjoyed the lively music at The Shamrock Bar even though it was towards the end of the season. Keep up to date with us on Facebook because as you will see from our posts we are refurbishing the bar!
Hope you will come back and see us soon.

A very warm welcome, lively entertainment and good company!
We called in to this bar every night of our holiday and enjoyed a good drink and a sing song. No matter how busy the bar was Ricardo could find us 4 chairs! If you are visiting Albufeira you should definitely not miss the chance of a great night in the Shamrock Irish Bar, half way down "Bar Street" upstairs in the California Shopping Centre (look up - you can't miss the sign!)
