A Canary Island that sings to an Irish tune, Lanzarote is loved by all. Lying in the Atlantic Ocean northwest of the African coast, the island has a unique lunar type landscape and its volcanic nature means dark sand beaches and a climate of year round sunshine. The architecture of white cube houses with green/blue shutters and buildings no higher than a palm tree has a pleasing affect, adding to the relaxing vibe.

The resorts of Puerto del Carmen, Matagorda, Los Pocillos, Costa Teguise and Playa Blanca are all popular and, renowned for fine food, fun bars and endless sunshine, the island is friendly and somehow familiar. It’s no wonder Lanzarote is the natural go-to Irish holiday escape all year.
