New bar reopens in the heart of Ballina town

Ballina has always had a great reputation for quality night life, sophisticated bars and urban chic night clubs in the West of Ireland. With the addition of recently renovated bar known as ‘Shambles’ Bar, part of the Ballina Manor Hotel based in the heart of Ballina over looking the world famous fishing Ridge Pool on Barrett st, Ballina continues to live up to its reputation.

Shambles Bar, an ode to Barrett streets’ original name has been the brain child and design of Ballina Manor’s General Manager Edel Sweeney.

Using the services and skills of local trades people Edel decided to gut out and rearrange the old bar space, moving the bar to the opposite side of the room and adding warmth and comfort through change of colour and use of soft furnishings, lightening and mirrors, bringing natural light into the bar, even though the bar is under the street!

Whether you are visiting Ballina on a girlie weekend away and fancy a cocktail with the ladies or prefer a quiet drink with friends or family Shambles Bar has got it all covered, offering an extensive drinks menu and delicious new cocktail list.

Paul Regan President of Ballina Chamber of Commerce said ‘Congratulations to Edel and the team at Ballina Manor Hotel on the renovation work in the beautiful Shambles bar. Ballina is very fortunate to have such a beautiful hotel based in the heart of the town, giving a warm Irish welcome to visitors from around the world. It is a testament to the Castle Collection group who have invested and continue to invest in this Ballina hotel, maintaining a high quality hospitality offering for visitors and locals, giving employment and using local produce and shopping local where possible!’
