About Shamrock Hotel Dunnstown: 

Dunnstown has a strong Irish heritage. Many locals have ancestors who settled the area when Ireland was hit with the ‘Potato Famine’ in the 1850’s. It was popular with settlers due to its proximity to the goldfields of Ballarat and employment.

In its heyday Dunnstown boasted sawmills, a thriving township and a distillery and is named after Irish distillery owner, R. Dunn. Barley was grown for the distillery but when it closed production stopped. The Irish being Irish turned to what they knew best, potatoes. The location and climate were, and still are, perfect for spuds!

The original catholic school and church and of course, the pub, The Shamrock Hotel, are still in existence.
The hotel boasts:
Beautiful mountain setting
Open fire places
Unique lounge bistro area
Modern well equipped kitchen
Bungalow in garden setting
Beer garden area and barbecue
