I visited this intimate little bar with my wife in October 2012.
On entering it was like walking into someone's living room ! It was cosy , friendly , and we were made to feel very welcome by the staff.
It has a good choice of beers etc and is a must if you want to hear some brilliant acoustic music !
James Gillespie was performing on the night of our visit and what a talent ! . He sang song after song , stopping only to lubricate his throat with a tot of rum , LOL , playing his guitar beautifully .
He was joined later by the very talented Gary , and we had a great night .
If you enjoy great acoustic music , great beer , friendly staff , all in a chilled out little bar with a good vibe , then this is the bar for you !
We will be paying this bar another visit in October 2013 , can't wait !
I have James Gillespie's CD of the night to listen to in the meantime , great music !

What a great place this is! Always a very warm atmosphere, the bar staff and the owners are really great and make you feel welcome, and nice live music on most of the nights!

It can get quite packed, e.g. on Fri night, but still not to the point when it becomes difficult to get around. Also I think they are very welcoming to musicians and singers from just tourists, cause one of the girls in our group did sing there with her friend, and one guy from the staff joined them.

Overall, highly recommended for a more relaxed-style evening and some great music.

We just got back from a week in Corralejo and had a lovely time, even though the weather was a bit iffy?
We went into this bar about 3 times and found it to be very comfortable with a lovely sort of laid back hippy feel to it, as the decor was like being in a very personal type of bar/living room.
There was live music on every night and we enjoyed seeing James Gillespie who has an amazingly different type of voice, and also Gary the owner who is a very talented musician.
The bar staff were also very friendly and there is also FREE WIFI with the best quick connection in Corralejo!! Lovely clean toilets too!
Well worth a visit, and we will defo look forward to going back there in March 2013.

Merry Xmas to you all at
Rock Island Bar!!! :) XX

Wayne Brennan - Irish singer - was very talented for a pub singer and should go far! Very expensive pub though, even by corralejo standards!
