The shamrock a home from home with the most friendly host in Gerry and Helen. This a little gem of a bar with the best Guinness in Spain. We come every time we're in Benalmadena and the standards never change always perfect.😊

Please do not ever call again. Your type of custom is not required. I am not afraid to... More
