As the World Cup get closer so does our holiday. We will be in Playa Blanca for the first two weeks of the world cup and would like to enjoy some (most) of the football in a good bar or 10, any suggestions would be most welcome.

The Fiddlers, The Irish Anvil, Wax, any other bar that has a telly.

When Spain are playing go into a Spanish place, we watched the Euro 2008 final in restaurant down the front, the atmosphere was fantastic.

We will be in CT for the final this time, I hope Spain are in it!

Will be no shortage of places! Personally I prefer Popeyes in the same commercial centre down by the port as the anvil - has a nice sea breeze too and no bitter irish bar staff!!!!

Frank - try asking the bar staff at the anvil in oooh say January when the place is empty you are the only one in the place and you ask them very politely if they could switch one of their 463 tvs to the cricket........oh no! Plus winding up the english when they lose at footie...not the brightest thing to do!

I know a lot of it is gentle ribbing but they need to get over whatever it is....

Agree with you Foodie.
Im not too impressed with the Staff in the Anvil.
Not very friendly. I used to call in when I'd take a drive from PDC. Dont bother any more and anyway cant get parked around there :x
Went to a bar in the block of shops and bars beside the Princess Yaiza, was an Irish bar, good food and drink and friendly staff and customers..............Mollies, I think that was the name :D :D

Im not sure if you've noticed Foodie, but we Irish lose a lot more often at footie than England.

I've never been to the Anvil, but I suspect from what you say, that the staff are just bitter at having to work there, and being Irish has little to do with it.

Well most of the staff (well used to be) relatives of the owners!! So am sure they all do rather well! I guess its just a bit of English V Irish teasing but sometimes its a bit off!

Strange plus to drop in for a quick sharpener Focker!

There's a relatively new place on the seafront up past the Timanfeya palace place that have heard about and am keen to check out! Can't remember the name so thats a rather cr*p lead!!

I would not know if it is strange or not as I dont know Playa Blanca very well.
I know the Anvil from been at the ferry port and Mollies from staying in Princess Yaiza.
Usually just head to Playa Blanca for the beach (Papagayo) 8)
