“Mc Carthys Bar ensures we return to Fuerteventura, time after time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

This is equal the best Irish bar anywhere. The Guinness is always perfect, as is the welcome, entertainment, staff and atmosphere. I can say without doubt that this Bar is the epitome of, " The Craic being Mighty" We are back in October 2013 for the 11th time. Always made to feel special and nothing is too much trouble. May it continue forever......

“Our " local " in Corralejo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

Been going to McCarthy's since 2009. A good pub, great music, great staff, a warm welcome every time. Would not usually frequent an Irish pub on holiday but McCarthy's is an exception.
Not stage Irish. Had a ball there over several nights last week.

“Best Irish Bar, Period”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013 via mobile

This has got to be the best Irish bar I have ever visited.
Fantastic atmosphere, small but not too overcrowded. Top service with a smile. Very reasonable drinks prices. Great traditional Irish entertainment.
Had the pleasure to visit on St. Patrick's night. What a party!
Thanks for the experience guys, you helped make our holiday.
See you all again December.

“genuine irish”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

this is a proper irish pub, comfortable and nice, but was walking in and someon was singing "Caledonia", so went somewhere else... it might be a bit too much of a sing-song joint for some likings...

“Friendly, lively, with excellent musicians”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

This has been our third visit to Corralejo. Whilst there, we make sure we go to McCarthy's about every third night - you have to give other places your custom too!!!! We have always found the place welcoming - the drinks waitress, Frankie, is excellent at her job. Very outgoing, welcomes everyone, ensures all visitors are seated promptly, and drinks brought to them. She, and her colleagues behind the bar, are amazing. You do not have to wait very long for your drink, even when the place gets extremely busy. The entertainment, provided free, is normally a guitarist/vocalist, with an Irish slant and good sense of humour. We have always been entertained. Whilst there this time, Keiran was the main man. At first we were not too sure if we liked him, as some of his patter was a bit offensive. However he grew on us. He was a very talented musician/vocalist and a very funny man. Most nights he was accompanied by his polish friend on guitar/vocals with other musician friends popping in for "sessions". The drinks prices in McCarthy's are not too bad. The Guinness they sell is excellent. We are hoping our next visit will be just as good, although Keiran has now moved on and Frankie soon becomes a Mum.
