“Slightly Tired Now”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

The Patch used to be a busy bustling area frequented by many, in reality, it now needs bulldozing and staring again as it is very very tired. Some good bars still there though, namely The Brewers Droop, The Dubliner, The Drunken Duck and The Gaelic Corner

“Love the patch”

From Shannigans to the Dubliner (in that order) is a really good night out with live music in both bars and the Dubliner going on into the early hours - always a good craic

“Small area of good bars and restaurants”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

This is a lot quieter than veronicas, and has some great restaurants and bars. Better for older couples and groups.

“A place not to visit”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

I have just returned from Play de las Americas for the last time, I will not go to a place again it is so over run with crime and the police and are not interested and take no action. Within 24 hours of arriving I had my wallet stolen and went to report it to the police and found the waiting room full of people r(40+) reporting the same problem. One left another arrived. When got to see a police office I asked about the problem and was told that 1in 10 visitor are robbed.
I lost 100 eruos, along with cards, driving licence and other bits that takes quite a time to deal,
I will no go again to Play de las Americas.
