  • I guess I haven't reviewed this place before. I would say the shire is pretty cool and they have great food. If you're in the area. The chicken and chorizo pasta was good. It also looks like they expanded since I was last here. I am disappointed they got rid of beers they had named after lords of the rings. They had IPAs and American pale ales. The front is covered as well. Was more shire like. Like I said. This place is worth a go but I wouldn't drive from Dublin for it.
  • Stopped in here for an Irish Coffee before heading back to my hotel for the night, which was a great decision! If you're a fan of the Lord of the Ring franchise, this quaint little spot is worth a stop! The Irish Coffee was hot and delicious and the perfect nightcap!
  • fantastic place , great atmosphere delicious food and fab drinks also got travel coffee mug .absolutely worth to stop by while visiting Killarney
  • Excellent bar with Hobbit overtones. We were there on a Tuesday night and saw different ages. Murphys beer and Irish coffees were great.
  • Very nice staff, outdoor seating area is done very well ,the only negative was our table top was a little wobbly but we got a giggle out of it, we had breakfast here and it was to die for. Best eggs benny we have had in a long time and the pancakes were gorgeous . I would drive back down from Tipp happily for coffee and breakfast again. We are sure to be back .
