Tuesday night is Parma Night at the Shamrock Hotel. Huge selection on different Parmas, all for $11.90. Very friendly staff and the atmosphere in the pub is actually very unique but robust. Enjoyed my night, met some locals and will return

I suppose my wife and I went here expecting Irish Stew, Guinness Pie, or even Bangers and Mash. We thought we might try something a little less expensive than other eateries in Palmer street. The hotel was quiet. There was no music and few customers....More
