“Expensive”
Review of O'shea's Irish Pub

O'shea's Irish Pub
Ranked #4 of 16 Nightlife in Vilamoura
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed October 19, 2012

The one thing most people seem to forget about this pub and other "Irish" pubs on the Algarve is that they are being totally overcharged, The price of a 400ml glass of beer in Oscars is €3.50 which equates to €5.00 per pint. Oscars also pour Irish measures of spirits from optics and charge similar to rates at home. Any Portugese establishments I have visited charge an average of €2.00 for 400ml beer and pour from the spirit bottle without measuring. I agree they have a skill in pouring but it is always certainly larger than a measure from an optic.

The entertainment in Oscars can vary from fantastic to absolutely embarassing drivel.
Pick your night to visit. I recommend a night when Pedro is performing, probably the best guitarist I have ever heard performing in a pub.

Had the pleasure of visiting this bar on a couple of occassions during a recent golf trip to Vilamoura. If you are looking for a decent pint of Guinness away from home, you won't be disappointed here. Alternatively, as i found out to my delight, you can also get a very nice pint of Kilkenny as well. Can't speak for every nite, but one of the nites we visited there was a guy on guitar with backing tracks(of which I'm not a lover) and he was awesome.You may not hit it every nite, but it's definitely worth a visit or two if you are in the area.

Being going to portugal for the last 4 years and always end up in O'shea's on Thursday nights which are great, a lad named Gary plays and he is a great entertainer for all ages and fantastic singer, def worth a visit. Staff are really nice and friendly and atmosphere is lively. Can't wait for next year for next visit.
