Bringing A Taste Of Ireland To Murrieta & Temecula
As a long time resident of the Temecula area this TemecuLove editor has seen the region continue to grow and develop into something special. What was once only recognized as a small town area with a handful of impressive wineries, Temecula has blossomed into a thriving community of over 100,000 people with numerous successful local businesses. Temecula breweries have been popping up everywhere to meet the needs of beer lovers throughout Temecula, the Promenade Mall continues to be a popular retail center for shoppers, the historic Old Town section now offers a nightlife for anyone in the Southern California area and the many Temecula wineries have grown into a tourist destination for people all over the country! Temecula truly is a success story. This has been absolutely fantastic for those living in Temecula, but for residents in the equally large city of Murrieta things have not been so thrilling. This is because the city of Murrieta has had very little to offer both tourists and locals. However, a pair of lads from overseas who shared a simple dream to start up family friendly, authentic Irish pub in the United States believed that Murrieta was indeed the perfect place to launch such an endeavor. Together, owners Graham and Paul have brought a little piece of Ireland to the city of Murrieta with The Shamrock Irish Pub & Eatery, and as of December 21st everyone can now experience the type of local pub that you could walk in anywhere in Ireland and feel at ease. Live music, Irish hospitality and a unique atmosphere that make The Shamrock different from every other venue in Murrieta.
Patrons visiting The Shamrock Irish Pub & Eatery for the first time will discover live traditional Irish music playing every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night. Sunday is also a day for families where more mellow Irish tunes can be heard while parents can kick back and enjoy watching some sports and have a bite to eat. What makes The Shamrock different from other local restaurants or bars is that The Shamrock is unique as the authenticity comes from an owner born and raised in Dublin with over 20 years of owning and operating an Irish Pub that caters for customers looking for a fun time and a musical journey. With an Irishman leading the team with such vast experience The Shamrock is not a copy of a pub in Ireland it is the real deal. The atmosphere, ambiance and friendly welcome cannot be replicated.
The Shamrock Hours Of Operation
- Sunday thru Thursday 11:00 am -11:00 pm

Starting A Irish Pub & Eatery Business In Murrieta
Graham and Paul chose to start The Shamrock in Murrieta because they described the area as an up and coming region with the close proximity to the wineries. They felt there was a gap in the market for an authentic Irish Pub with a musical tradition that could attract all different demographics. Feeling that The Shamrock could cater to anyone with an appetite for some Fish & Chips to die for or simply anyone looking to relax and listen to Irish tunes, Graham and Paul realized that Murrieta had unlimited potential. Graham and Paul would like Murrieta residents to know The Shamrock is a “local” bar operated for the “locals” by “locals”. This Temecula Daily Deals writer can back this statement up by saying that both owners were chatting with patrons and having a good time every single time he has visited The Shamrock.
The Shamrock is already creating a significant buzz in the Murrieta and Temecula area, and if business continues to be consistent and successful there could be at least two more Shamrocks calling the Inland Empire home in the next 5 years. But the core and values of The Shamrock will always be the same and that is to offer good food, great entertainment and friendly atmosphere where people are welcomed on a first name basis as they enter the pub!
Shamrock currently does not offer Temecula coupons or daily deals, but the popular Irish Pub does have some great happy hour specials and free events like comedy night on Tuesdays!
