The beautiful Shamrock Hotel was built in 1854 and although quite rundown at one stage, has been redecorated and brought back to its original grand style.
There is one restaurant and one cafe as well as accommodation upstairs. The restaurant, known as the Victorian Wine Room (or Balcony restaurant) was closed for a private function unfortunately. We chose to eat in the cafe so I could say I had eaten at the hotel. It was quite noisy but not too bad. I had a very nice risotto and because I’m a sucker for a lemon tart I chose that for dessert.
