    Great food & Music
    We happened on this pub when rambling about, Brendan is the musician who plays every night from 9,pm - midnight . He is just amazing , such a repertoire of music, all the Irish sing a longs , and all modern stuff too He sings , has the craic / fun with all in the pub , he remembers people from night & night . It made our holiday. Our girls loved going there. We went on the Sunday to watch the football & had the Sunday roast . Wow what great food for great value . Can't speak highly enough of everything about the Bodhran. If in Benidorm it's a must . The Cork Lady serving food & bar is lovely. Carmel . Michael & girls ... The Glenamaddy gang 😉

    Great atmosphere
    We've been here on a previous holiday to Benidorm and enjoyed the live music and atmosphere and a return visit didn't disappoint. There are limited seating areas inside as it's a fairly small bar and there are some outside tables/chairs too. The singer is excellent and is a good entertainer which makes for a great atmosphere. The drinks are good quality at reasonable prices. We went back on our 2nd week but unfortunately there was a sign in the window saying it is closed for holidays until 22 December. Hope it's open when we go back in January.

    As good as ever.
    When we visit Benidorm we always go to the Bodrum. A friendly and welcoming bar.With excellent entertainment with Brendon Murray. He sings every night from 9.pm. Get there early if you want a seat as it gets busy. They sell lovely food at reasonable prices.

    Best bar in Benidorm
    Fantastic wee bar. Brendan plays guitar and sings, is a great all round entertainer and gets the crowd going with his banter. Staff hard working and the friendliest we came across in benidorm. Can't wait to go back.

Entertainment in the shape of Brendan Murray leads the way at this friendly intimate pub. He provides the entertainment with his mix of Irish and popular songs from about 9pm right through to 12.30 amThe staff are friendly, courteous and quick to serve you. We visit 2-3 times every time we go for our weekly break in Benedorm, which is often. It is obviously a popular venue, we highly recommend it.

It was a hot sunny day in Benidorm and we came across this bar, I'm glad we did......with very helpful staff to help us while we were there.

I must talk about our meal, the two ladies had a very nice meal and the two gentlemen had an Irish Stew - I was one of the gentlemen.....it was an Irish Beef Stew with chunks of boiled potatoes, soft sliced carrots and a portion of mashed potato as well ** I finished everything in the bowl and thoroughly enjoyed every mouthful

You would think in an Irish bar that GAA would be shown, maybe not as a priority when most punters are British. When rugby and soccer overrule the GAA. Food was good as always (ate here before) staff friendly. I know was probably majority rules for the sports ... but all wasn't in vain. Great memories here.

Visited easter Sunday. Typical brits abroad looking for a Sunday roast and we were not disappointed. We went for the lamb and it was lovely. Better than some roasts I've had at home here in the UK. The menu looked very nice and the Irish stew looked to be a very popular dish whilst we were there. The prices are fair (around 25 euro for 2 roasts and 2 pints) and the atmosphere was lovely.

Very disappointed in this bar. have been here several times, but this time disappointed me. Seemed to be mostly locals in there at night, seemed everybody knew everybody. obviously somewhere where they all meet. Anyway, in an Irish bar, would expect Irish Music to be played, but that was not the case. there was modern music apart from Irish music. My friends commented on the fact as an Irish Bar, Irish music should be played. I asked for a request to be played, but it never came. very disappointed in this bar now, and won't be going back.

Wanted somewhere to eat on our walks on the beach. So grateful we found this place, amazing meals very reasonably priced. Loved it that much we visited the next day. Burgers are all homemade not your frozen ones. Staff are lovely, quick service. Definitely recommend visiting.
