St Patrick’s Day Celebrations in Benalmadena: Here’s the Plan….

St Patricks Day in BenalmadenaSt Patrick’s Day is a popular celebration in Benalmadena. Every year over 1000 people (Irish locals, visitors and pretty much anyone looking to have a good craic) join in the parade in the centre of town and the amazing party which takes place next to Paloma Park afterwards!

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!

This year we’ll also be hosting the International Celtic Festival on Saturday 16th March in our Moonlight Bar. The show starts at 8pm and you’ll get to enjoy Ceili Dance with Irish dancers and fantastic music with singers and musicians from Ireland! Tickets for this event are available from the Sunset Beach Club Leisure Desk on the 6th floor and are just €10 for a fun evening of traditional Irish music and dance! Continue Reading →
