I have been going to Lanza for over 10 years and have followed Rory since I first came across him about 5 years ago. Great to hear that Rory and his lovely wife Cara have gone for it and opened their own bar. The music is fantastic with a blend of Rory's own and the popular covers that we all love on holiday. I am delighted to hear that he has released a cover of Galway shawl and he has given it his usual magical twist. Rory has a unique gift of entertaining all age groups. He makes my holiday and is one of the many reasons I continue to winter in PDC.

If you go to Lanzarote and don't visit The Island Bar you should be keel hauled , it has to be one of the best nights crack ever (crack been the Irish for great laugh) The staff are pleasant and Rory Gallagher the main star can hold a crowd like no other. I know I'll be back :)

By far the best Bar in Puerto Del Carmen. Well worth a visit. You will not be disappointed. Bar staff are very friendly and efficient, they will make sure that you don't go thirsty...Rory is a fantastic artist and a great entertainer. 3 hours of non stop music and banter. He puts so much energy into every song and really enjoys the craic with the crowd, A mixture of old &, new songs with a few of his own songs threw in for good measure, and believe me they are classic. To round the night off Senegal Jimmy joins Rory on stage for the a few duets.We had a few nights in the Island Bar and will definitely be back again.
