Due to rainy weather being forecast for Sunday, March 17th, the Marbella Town Hall has changed the location for the St. Patrick’s Day Festival. It will now be held upstairs in the Palacio de Congresos, Marbella. The entrance is opposite El Corte Ingles, before you get to the Copper Tower (Piruli), on the right-hand side if you are coming from Puerto Banus.  If you are driving, you can park next door, beside the Senator Hotel (free).

All of the original participants are still involved and the festivities will commence at 12 noon with the dance troop, the Aloha College Irish Dancers. All afternoon there will be oodles of entertainment with food and drink being served.

Come for Sunday lunch at the St. Patrick´s Day Festival, enjoy the music and dancing and experience the Irish talent on the Costa del Sol.

St. Patrick´s Day in Marbella

Post by: Gerarda on 04 Mar 2013

All over the world whether at home or abroad the Irish will be celebrating St. Patrick´s Day. March 17th is a day to make merry especially if you are Irish and a good excuse if you are not.

Marbella will be the home of this year´s St. Patrick´s Day Festival on the Costa del Sol and the Terraces of the Marbella Marina will be decked out in the familiar colors of green, orange and white. At noon Gemma Cannon, along with her dance troop, Aloha College Irish Dancers will grace the festival stage with traditional Irish dancing and throughout the afternoon the Aloha College Celtic Singers, Sean Murray, singer/songwriter from Skerries, Dublin will serenade us and guitarists Alec Mac and Liam Kenneally will play classic Irish music. Marbella’s Tourism Department has arranged for a Spanish Flamenco Show and the Belly Dancing group Al-Kamra will be performing as part of their ongoing support for DEBRA Spain.

Irish businesses will be out in full-force during the St. Patrick´s Day Festival with food and drink being served all afternoon. From Gourmet Tapas to Clonakilty Black Pudding and many other specialties including desserts, there will be no fear of you going hungry.  And to wash it all down there will be Guinness and more Guinness, a Champagne bar, Spanish wines and of course the nectar of the gods, Irish Whiskey.

For those energetic souls there will be Gaelic football on the beach for both children and adults, organized by the Costa Gael GAA Football Club. And for the little ones there will be a Bouncy Castle and Face Painting provided by Tina of Tina Kids.

Come and celebrate your Irish heritage or rediscover it.

Great café in Puerto Banus – Croissant´s Show

Post by: Gerarda on 15 Feb 2013

We went with friends of ours to the Croissant´s Show in Puerto Banus last week. It is a lovely French café with a sunny terrace. We went for the desserts, and the sweet tooth among us had a delicious crepe with chocolate sauce. The rest of us had good old-fashioned desserts of brownies and apple pie. People at other tables were hard at work on their computers while they ate their fresh and tasty looking sandwiches and salads, as the café has Wi-Fi.  It is a good place to go if you can´t be away from your computer or you want to catch up on your emails.

You can also enjoy breakfast or lunch during the winter months and dinner in the evening, during the summertime. If you would like an English breakfast, a Continental breakfast or a Nordic breakfast you will find one to suit your palate.

For great coffee and delicious pastries among other tasty morsels, you need to check out Croissant´s Show in Puerto Banus.

They are located in:
Marina Banus, Block II
Next to the cinema
Tel: 951-712-592

They are open from:
