Join in the craic
It’s no surprise that St Patricks Day is celebrated in Puerto del Carmen every year by locals and visitors with a parade and a party in the Old Town Harbour. After all, the resort has the largest number of Irish residents on Lanzarote. It’s also the most popular resort destination for Irish holidaymakers visiting the island.
This year, 2019, the St Patricks Day celebrations take place over three days and include:
Friday 15th March
Midday: Hurling on the beach at Playa Grande.
Saturday 16th March
5pm: Exhibition of dances and Irish music in Matagorda.
Sunday 17th March
11am: Mass in the Church of Our Lady of Lourdes in Puerto del Carmen.
1pm: Parade from the outskirts of the Tourist Office on Avenida de las Playas to Plaza del Varadero in Puerto del Carmen (The Old Town Harbour).
1pm: Music and dancing in the Plaza del Varadero (The Old Town Harbour).
Everyone is invited to join in the St Patricks Day fun, enjoy a few pints of Guinness, wear their best green clothes and party, whether they are Irish or not.
If you want to continue the celebrations, then Puerto del Carmen has a number of Irish bars in the Old and New Town areas. Some of the best include:
