Gran Canaria - Playa Del Ingles

Flying out on Saturday night on a last minute deal I booked with a friend. Anyone got any good tips for Playa Del Ingles in Gran Canaria?

Also hoping to find an Irish pub showing the hurling on Sunday?

Any suggetions/reccomendations/warnings?

Mulligans is a nice Irish bar in the centre of the Irish centre. I was there in June and they were in the process of installin wide screen tvs throughout the pub.
Stay clear of the Yumbo centre at night, big gay centre...one particular club we went to go into insisted we remove all our clothes first....not a place for the kiddies!

Hey Sleepy, firstly, I feel awfully guilty about the whole avatar thingie - but I would have won the whole drinking thingie

Secondly, it's "Playa de Finglas"...
To be fair I was over there with a girl a couple of years back, and sun holidays for couples didn't really suit me, but Mulligans near the Green Isle appartments would be your best chance for the hurling.

Enjoy the holiday mate, I trust you will none the less.

I'm sure I will! Heard it called that before alright. Basically planning to go on the lash in the evenings, drink as much beer, hook up with as many women as possible and spend all day lying by the pool - cheap and cheerful.

Had a read of that other thread - fairly mixed reviews...

What's the grass situation like over there?
