Overview

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!

This is a great wee bar that's full of good crack, all the entertainers are great fun and loads of laughs. All bar staff are very welcoming and friendly and the drink is ice cold which is such a plus in Albufeira.

Oura beach is a pretty area near a steep hill called 'cardiac hill'. You will be close to the 'strip'. Albufeira is a short 10 minute taxi ride away and the Shamrock Bar is just around the corner from 'fisherman's beach... More
