The manager, Goncalo, is Portuguese and has made a great job of the Shannon. There is a friendly crowd and without doubt the best pint of Guinness in the city. St. Patrick´s weekend promises to be fantastic, especially Saturday with the rugby and the Loafing Heroes who are a class act.

Well sorry Berlinirish, but how can an Irish Bar run by a Portuguese person be Irish? I ask you also how can a Berlinirish be real Irish? I am sorry but this place really has no atmosphere and is host to shabby music and karaoke. What's with that idiot karaoke guy? I look forward to my journey back to Ireland to get back to REAL Irish pubs!

I do not care if the manager is portuguese or not. what i know is the guiness there is great. and about the music you need to go there and listen. by the way the karoake idiot is gonne. good move goncalo.

Cant actually think of an irish bar run by an irish person in berlin. The new shannon is a great bar, the owner and other staff are really friendly. They have some wicked bands at the weekends, and as for there being no atmosphere, that is just insane, it has more atmosphere than most places. I will definately be going back!!

What is everybodies preoccupation with keeping things the same? Berlin has changed in the past years and so have the pubs, people should stop living in the past and embrace the future!! The Shannon is part of that future!

Embrace the future!Shut up.The place is run on drugs.The sound of sirens is coming.

Okay guys, lots of pros and cons there, and some racist rubbish. Realistically we don't have anywhere else (worthwhile) to go in West Berlin, so is this place still open or not?
I'll have a look for it.

I highly recommend Molly Malone's in Wilmersdorf:
Address: Hanauer Str. 80, 14197 Berlin
U9 ? SBahn Bundesplatz is a 5+ min walk form the pub.
Marcus who runs the pub is a friendly barman, there is live music, open stages, sessions etc, as well ad Irish and British sport on the TV. Food is fine pub grub, a big menu.
And it is a real pub, looks like a real pub and feels like a real pub.
