St Patrick’s Day is a popular celebration in Benalmadena. Last year more than 1000 Irish locals joined in the parade in the centre of town; add to that the holiday makers that visit the popular resort and you’ve got the makings of a great party!
It’s no secret that Sunset Beach Club is an Irish-owned hotel, therefore, the 17th March is an important day on our calendar. Every year we prepare our “Sunset Style” celebrations which include consuming copious amounts of Guinness at the Panorama Bar and a fantastic “Irish Themed” set menu for all our guests in the Oasis Restaurant!
If you’re looking for a plan for St Patrick’s day, here’s what we recommend you do:
1) When you wake up, head down to our Oasis Restaurant and tuck into the hot buffet breakfast; you’re going to need something solid in your stomach before venturing out and enjoying the festivities 😉
2) At around mid-day, you might want to make your way into the centre of Benalmadena (Arroyo de la Miel) and join in the St Patrick’s Day parade which starts at the Catholic Church (Inmaculada Concepción – beside the train station) in Arroyo de la Miel and ends up at the Feria ground in next to Paloma Park. The Irish Association of Spain has prepared a great party which includes celtic dancers (flown in from Ireland), singers, live music, great food and the best Guinness in the area!!!
3) At 6:30pm, make sure you head back to Sunset Beach Club to enjoy our Happy Hour in the Panorama Bar. Half price drinks until 7:30pm as well as free canapés and giveaways (hats, etc).
4) Dinner at the Oasis Restaurant: It’s time for a delicious St Patrick’s Day Themed Dinner prepared by our Head Chef for the occasion. Here’s the menu:
So what do you think? Sounds like a good plan doesn’t it? Hurry up and make your booking by calling the restaurant on extension 7000. Local residents who are not staying in the hotel are more than welcome to come and join in the fun! (please call 952 579400 – ext 7000 for reservations).
