The Shamrock Bar & Grille Building / Landmark in Lupine Bay | World Anvil

The Shamrock Bar & Grille


Our Story

Brigid's B&B has been a Lupine Bay institution since time immemorial. Citizens and travelers alike flock to the property to marvel over the profusion of rare flowers tucked into every nook and cranny. At some point, also lost to time or memory, The Shamrock Bar & Grille addition was built alongside the B&B.   For many years, the B&B and bar were owned and run by Brigid O'Gowan herself, a gracious and welcoming hostess, always ready to lend a hand or listen to patron's tale. Her generous nature was deeply valued by the townsfolk, especially her regulars. One group in particular visited as many nights as possible, solely to patronize the business and support Brigid.   Unfortunately, tragedy struck the O'Gowan family one fateful night when a fire raged out of control, destroying their home. The home was located on the same property as the businesses, but thankfully those buildings escaped unscathed. Although both of Brigid's children were able to escape the fire, the beloved matron herself was lost to the ashes.   Although overcome with grief, Brigid's daughter would not allow her mother's legacy to sink into ruin without a fight, nor would she allow her younger brother's to face additional upheaval. At only 19 years of age, Ava received full custody of her brother, Ian, and took over Brigid's.   Brigid's has had its share of difficulty since that dark day, but we're happy to report that we're still here and still open! Stop by and smell the roses, and grab a frosty pint from the Shamrock while you're here!



Frank | Skald in Residence

Frank started making appearances at the Shamrock only a short while ago. He plays a variety of instruments, although one almost-a-guitar is his favorite. He loves playing for a crowd, and can occasionally be convinced to participate in one of the many games we play here at the Shamrock. If you beat Frank, you might end up winning novelty coins of surprising heft!  



Ava O'Gowan | Owner

Ava is 22 years young and likes long walks on the beach and piña coladas. Luckily she owns a private beach and a bar, so she can indulge whenever she so desires!   PSA: If you ever see Ava running towards a forest, immediately start walking calmly but quickly in the opposite direction. This is for your own safety.  

Charley Wilhard | Head Bartender

Charlotte "Charley" Wilhard has been Ava's best friend since elementary school, and graciously offered to help with bar tending while the O'Gowans get back on their feet. She has a secret, I can tell, but I haven't figured out what it is yet!        

Kushiel Rutilus | Publicity

Hey, it's me! I'm probably the most charming and suave person you'll encounter in your travels. I have taken up temporary residence at Brigid's to lend my expertise and assistance to the family. Can you that believe before I got here, they didn't even have a website??      

Seamus | Bouncer

Don't let his picture fool you, Seamus is a big ol' teddy bear on the inside, a real soft touch. That being said, people claim he might have single-handedly wiped a species or two from existence. So, you know, don't go poking that bear with a stick. I also don't recommend falling in love with him, it's sure to end badly.      

Zaqiel Ward | Chef in Residence

The only thing you need to know about Zaq Ward is that he makes better food than anything you can get on Earth. He's supposed to be here to kill us and steal our stuff, or at least that's our theory, but he was so entranced by Ava's kitchen that he started cooking and forgot to go back to murdering. He'll kill your desire for food from anywhere else, that's for damn sure.  

Bali Raj | Assistant Bartender

Raj is new in town, but he won't be here for long.   I wouldn't recommend getting attached.   Honestly, he's only bartending for the Shamrock because the business is short on staff and Raj is short on business.

This reminds me of the handful of small restaurants I've grown up with between two small towns. I like that it's kinda set up like a business website, written/set up by Kushiel. The format is clean and easy on the eyes. I like the lil' additions of nearby businesses. Nice job. c :

Thank you! I did run out of time, so it doesn't have everything I'd hoped to include for the contest, but it's a great jumping off place.   There will be a new and improved menu created; this one is based on Ava's cooking capabilities (limited), but Zaq will be making some significant changes. All the businesses and characters will also be linked out to their own article landing pages.   The Shamrock crew will be sure to drop by the Sloshed Slug for a drink! ;)

Ah, it happens. But it does look pretty good for a starting point either way. c :

A very pretty place with pretty people in it and a menu you can dream of. I would like to have a coffee and see where this journey takes me, especially if Zaqiel made the coffee himself. Some really nice conversations could happen anytime. Or maybe just small hints of what has to come and what was long time ago.   And I would like one of your fine single casks whiskeys please. :)

Ah heck, I totally meant to add a drink menu (it's a *pub* after all) and forgot. Maybe I can still bust that out before the end of the challenge.   And yes, there is quite a lot of history twining through this property and its caretakers. It's all set in the modern day real world, so it's trickling through slowly, but not nearly so mundane as it may appear. ;)

I love all the attention you've paid to the staff, including the great photos. And the opening—the way that it reads like the back of a menu or the About section on a website, it really made me feel like this was a real place.   Also: hooray for the "almost-a-guitar"!

Hahaha I genuinely don't even remember what instrument it is - that character is one of my co-writer's and he was curious to see a description from the POV of one of my characters. But it's definitely guitar-ish.   Thank you!!
