    That's some place now! The store was buzzing.

    It has great model displays. Full of cameras, phones, tablets, smart watches and plenty of phone covers.

    Harvey Norman have a big task I think.

    Hope I'm wrong but I thought mobile phones weren't allowed to be sold in that Retail Park?

    true - i think it was in environs plan as one of the un-allowed items to be sold up there .

    anyway I am not worried personally, I'm glad if they are moving away from that silly rule

    What’s the reason for that?

    I think, but I am not too sure, that in the conditions it was only large items to be sold up there in the environ plan - ones you could just pull up to the car park of the retail park , open up your boot and shove the large Item in the back of the boot or trailer. Was one of the reasons years ago that Argos could not open up a store there and had to set up in Cleaveragh retail park instead even though they originally wanted to set up in the Carraroe retail park.

    But we all know it was a silly un-workable plan because you could buy a box of nails or screws from homebase since they have opened - thats hardly 'bulky/warehouse goods' to shove in the back of your car!

    About the norm if probably a bit cheaper than Shells/Baker Boys by the looks of things..

    Agree about venue and dunes. However at the seafront there isn't choice. The service is shells is awful, unless you are local it seems. I've had people walk in, clearly well known to staff, and been served before me, happened several times so I stopped going back.

    Also dunes not open during the day, jade garden the same. Had never heard of runway cafe.

    I wouldn't agree with that about Shell's at all. We are definitely not locals - from Dublin - but we go to Shell's whenever we are in Strandhill which could be once a month during summer and a lot less in winter but we always get seated and looked after. Granted sometimes it's mad busy and they have a little waiting list for tables that one of the waiting staff will look after but we've never had an issue getting a table.

    The menu looks great, will be looking forward to trying it out when it opens. I was in Strandhill about 2 weeks ago though and no work had started on this place, hopefully they do something with it soon. I'm assuming there will be a new fit-out for the new owners :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 183 ✭✭ MountainAshIRL


    Seems there is very mixed opinions on shells, I loved it when it opened first. I guess a lot depends on staff as well but I do know many people who don't go here any more for the reason I outlined. Seen similar reviews on their fb page too.

    Also the fish they serve is farmed cobbler from Indonesia. A lot of people have allergy to this fish, yet no warning on their menu about what type of fish it is, or at least there wasn't. My mother's friend had severe allergic response to it about a year ago in there.

    Shells doesn’t really do it for me either. It’s a bit grubby. And as for the fish (which i thought was Panga,no?), selling that should be a crime considering what’s available instead.
