Didn't find this until our last night and our only disappointment was that we would not get the chance to return. Should we be back in Puerta Del Carmen again this would be the first bar we should head to on an evening out !

Great music - wild rover and proper irish tunes to get your dancing. Then pedro ruiz came on with prince, George Michael and (not my choice...) beiber. Amazing night! Head there around 10.30/11 :-)
