The Irish Anvil in Playa Blanca, Lanzarote, is the largest Irish bar in the resort, and has so much to offer you. The Irish Anvil in Playa Blanca, Lanzarote, originally opened in June 1996, and promptly established itself as the epitome of great atmosphere, all washed down with a great pint of Guinness. Our breakfast is famous, our burgers are renowned and our cold beers are famous. We have all major live sporting events on 12 full HD TV's. In the evenings we have live entertainment every night and are the number 1 Live Music venue in Playa Blanca.
