July is hot hot hot!

…summertime and the living is easy, so goes the song by George Gershwin. The heat hit Albufeira unusually late but the holidaymakers arrived, filling the pretty cobbled streets in the ‘Old Town’. Restaurants, bars, and gift shops are all busy and the square takes on a different guise at night with puppeteers, balloon modellers and live traditional music and dancing. As you all know, our resident musician plays live music seven nights throughout the season. His new CD, ‘One for the Road’ has Wagon Wheel, Bad Moon Rising and the traditional well loved Irish ballads that we sing along to at The Shamrock Irish Bar. Our customers continue to surprise us with their talents! You only need to look at the photos on our Shamrock Bar Facebook page to see the craic! We have a variety of instruments including a Banjo, Accordian, Fiddle, Tin Whistles and Franks favourite, the Bodhran.
The staff all have new t-shirts and so can be easily recognised in the bar. However, if you want to buy one as a souvenir of your holiday then just ask Frank.
Our daughters are frequent visitors and this year surprised Frank to celebrate his 60th birthday. We all wished him a happy birthday and recorded it on video firmly embedded on the Shamrock Facebook page. Have a peek at this ‘for one night only’ party!
Trip advisor helps new holidaymakers find their way to The Shamrock and we are proudly displaying our 5 star certificate of excellence for 2013. Frank loves the bar and welcomes everyone who steps over our threshold. Good value drinks, brilliant entertainment and our cheerful helpful staff, Chris from Dublin, Chicco and Ricardo (both from Cork, a little joke that Frank has with them) and our amazingly talented, happy, drinking revellers, you the customers have got us this accolade. Thanks a million.
