At times when walking around Puerto Del Carmen you could be forgiven for thinking you were wandering the streets of Dublin, Cork or Limerick, such is the number of Irish voices you can hear.

The sun re-appeared on Tuesday after two weeks of disappointingly cold and windy weather. Today we had another wander around the streets of the Old Town. I know there a few Irish Bars in the area but as we made our way back to our apartment, I didn’t realise there were so many.

Presenting the Irish Bar Gallery

These are shown in walking order, just in case you fancy a fifteen bar pub crawl. Note the photos were taken mid-morning (except No. 5 which I got later) and the bars were closed – most seem to open around 4pm – earlier at the weekend). Not only that, they’re open until they close.

And all within a square mile probably. Sláinte.
