I enjoy the Irish Rover when they have entertainment on and dont mind paying their inflated drink prices when its on.
I see they have reduced their menu to more of a snack one see they must be having trouble competing with the likes of the Beachcomber next door as they now offer a competatively priced menu of the day. Dont get a false sense of security. The drinks will push the bill up greatly, they are not cheap. A bottle of house wine in €9 I think.
I think the new Shenanigans, three doors away, must also be causing problems for the Rover as they are quite busy when they have entertainment on, some better than others I would say, and prices seem ok.
I see also Shenanigans are doing horse racing and sports, especially Irish sports, DA.
I went to the Irish Rover over the weekend and was not impressed at all, at least not the food or drink prices and measures were not good. Like DA said if there is entertainment one wouldnt mind paying the extra.
DA , you might be casting aspersions that are incorrect.
Years ago I too ended up in hospital...for a week..because of food poisoning.
The doctors said whatever had caused my problem it could have been anything up to 3 days prior to my being hospitalised.
Everywhere ,and what, I had eaten during that time scale was checked out . Source though was never found although it was known from the culture they grew it was not from the food I ate last.
Surely the hospital will be checking out cause of your food poisoning in case of an outbreak. When my husband was hospitalised with Legionnaires once again everywhere was checked. They were very thorough.
Source of husbands problem was our irrigation water......potentially deadly.

My family and I have visited the Irish Rover a couple of times and both times have sat there waiting for ages to be asked what we would like to drink Don't mind waiting if it's busy, but it wasn't. We ended up walking out and going somewhere else to find a drink. Won't bother going there again.
I have no connection with the Irish Rover, nor do I go there, but to accuse them of causing your food poisoning is a bit risky!
Most folks don't understand that the incubation period for food poisoning ( the time between eating the affected food and symptoms appearing) is usually more than 24 hours. Two hours is just not possible, except in the case of a chemical, rather than bacterial source.
I'm not a fan of the Irish Rover and never have been, but I think the term 'food poisoning' is being used a little loosely here!!!!,...........food poisoning will take a good 24 hours to manifest itself, and it will also put you on your back for a week!!!,........but, someone with a 'delicate' stomach can be ill after only a few minutes of eating something that was 'off'!!,.....sadly this is commonplace in Spain due to the weather, it has happened to me on several occassions, particularly with sauces and mayonnaise based food!!,...........my advise would be, unless you know and trust the restaurant, only eat what you can see is fresh, and avoid any sauces!!!!!!. _________________ "If your Parent's didn't have any children the chances are you won't either!!!".
I have eaten in the Irish Rover on several occasions. Furthermore, I have often had a drink there. Great place to be when Irish sport is on television. (Gaelic Football, Hurling, Munster Rugby - none of your poncy take a dive premiership footballers on fat cat salaries) Any ill effect I endured was of my own doing (too much drink and loved every drop).
Any food I received there was well presented and brought to our table by good humoured, affable English ladies. While I am a fan of real Spanish Food, I cannot say a word against food in the Irish Rover.

we were in the irish rover 3 nights ago the food was ok the entertainment was good but the drinks were a bit expensive,but at least there is a bit more going on there and it gets a lot busier in summer,had a meal at the beachcomber and was a bit disappointed at the size of the portions but the food was ok.we had 3 meals at the mediteranio restaurant and we think they take some beating.
