Typical Irish bar in faneiul hall. The clientele is in their early 20's and everyone there is always looking for a fun night. Lines can get long after 11 so get there ealry, as anywhere in the area.

The Purple Shamrock is one of the favorites of Faneuil Hall. They have typical pub fare. Affordable drinks and cover. The dance floor is good size considering it is in Faneuil Hall.

The Purple Shamrock has a great location right in the middle of Faneuil Hall. The place is always filled with young patrons and is a lot of fun. Drinks aren't too bad and they always seem to have specials.

The location is great, the place is packed, but they act like they are a notch above the other 2 million irish pubs in boston, which they aren't. It's just more of a scene than it should be which is a plus for some people and a turn

Pros: Open window seating

Cons: Rude and slow

We were a table of 3 on a late Saturday afternoon. It was somewhat busy but not every table was occupied. The service was awful. The food was mediocre. We ordered our drinks and food and it took 20 mins to bring us our waters. 5 mins

Cons: Too many to list...but #1 con is service

After walking the Freedom Trail my lady and I looked around for something to eat. We liked what they had on the menu so we decided to try it. It was about 8 or 9 pm and the place was not crowded. There may have been five 6 tables and 5

I really enjoyed Saturday afternoon beers with my girlfriends at The Purple Shamrock. We decided to stay for a beer and then watch the Patriots game. We didn't end up leaving 'til closing time. The waitresses were friendly & were always

Pros: Good location and attentive staff

Cons: The scene changes after 10pm-- club scene.

If you are looking for a place to have drinks, stop by here. The food is not the best but the drinks are! Nice place to stop by to see interesting people.

Pros: great staff and a team that seems to like each other! and great drinks

Cons: unknown always a good time!

This place would not even let me in! I had a valid MA driver's license that they stated "was not me". I had just dyed my hair brunette (it's blonde in the photo) and the idiot bouncer said that it was not me and he refused to letme in,

Pros: NOTHING

Cons: EVERYTHING

With so many good places in Boston, why would you spend (waste) your time & money on one like this. We've gone a few times, hoping it'd get better, and it never - EVER - does. The bartenders are horrible - they're slow, completely rude,

Pros: $10.00 Lobster, Friendly Staff, Great Location

This place really mixes it up. You can go here, sit down, have a meal and stay afterwords for a few drinks after dinner. Or, you can show up and be at a full fledged dance club. It is a good time no matter what.

Pros: Good time, cheep beer, Social women

The Purple Shamrock is, first and foremost, a tourist bar. And since tourists can't become repeat customers, the bar can get away with a rude staff and poor service. And it certainly does. The place is so busy that the ownership can
