“Great bar, Good craic!”
Review of Erin's Isle

Erin's Isle
Ranked #13 of 73 Nightlife in Albufeira
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 3 December 2009

Have been to Albufeira several times and always make it a point to visit `Erins Isle` a couple of times during our holiday. It is well run and usually does`nt attract the rowdy element but just good Irish, Scottish, Welsh, English, Portuguese and anybody else, people wanting a good sing-a-long or even getting up to perform `yerself`.
There are 2 places of entertainment, the big barn of a place just as you come in or downstairs where its more intimate and pub-like. Entertainers Max and Dave do a great job of singing and keeping the customers happy.
The bar staff are efficient and friendly (no I`m not getting paid for this!) can`t remember all their names, the big guy fron Angola, Ray, John, Dave and last but not least Miguel (the Portuguese guy with the Irish accent!) Hope to see you all soon, Slainte.

This bar/complex caters for all your Irish needs , with live entertainment in two bars , a resturant , and a handy kiddies corner. If you fancy a guiness and a sing-along , Erin's Isle is great. Prices are pretty steep compared to other bars on the strip however and the food - although familiar - is very "microwave friendly" and relatively expensive. The staff are mainly Irish and friendly enough , a bit quick sometimes to wip your glass away when just emptied. The outside area is built for crowds rather than comfort , with benches stacked around fairly long tables , but that doesn't seem to effect the punters , as you get a good crowd in most nights - esp when Ireland are playing. There is a more comfortable bar downstairs , with its own entertainment - and pool table. A safe place to start/end your night exploring the strip.

I have visited the Albufeira area quite a few times in the last few years and have become quite familiar with the whole "strip" and its surrounding area. I must say that breakfast in Erins Isle cannot be beaten in my opinion. A breakfast there sets you up for the day. It could be that perhaps visitors from other countries might not have the same level of enthusiasm, but for Irish visitors this is a true taste of home with decent portions and a good price.

Evening meals are fine but other restaurants on the strip are equally as good.

I have not enjoyed the entertainment at night yet but I'll be back on sept 12th this year so I'll try it then.

What a pub, what a welcome. The proprietor, Dave Madden must be the the most welcoming host in the whole of Portugal. Nothing is too much for him in his quest for total customer satisfaction. Give him my regards. Steve from Carmarthen. South Wales
