In the heart of Monti and just up the street from the Colosseum is a hip Irish pub with true Italian spirit. As soon as you step foot in the Shamrock (recently renovated), you know you’re not just in any run-of-the-mill Irish pub. Your first indication is the vast collection of football scarves from all over the world hanging from the pub’s ceilings. Most of them were given as gifts from loyal customers. Another thing that grabs your attention about this place is that it’s frequented by a ton of locals, as opposed to most Irish pubs where you’ll find tourists only. The Shamrock is the perfect spot to grab a beer (12 kinds on tap) and watch the major live football and rugby matches. They also have happy hour everyday (except Saturdays and Sundays) until 8pm and other weekly drink specials. Looking for some pub grub? Shamrock makes a mean burger, hot dog and a lot of fresh food. This pub is the perfect place to go for a work lunch and take advantage of their free Wi-Fi.
