The premises that this bar occupies has been a wateringhole for a good few years, but was transformed into the Blarney Stone in 2004. Billing itself as "the only traditional Irish bar in the area", it is owned and run by Agustin and Collete (who also acts as compere).
Like every Irish bar, you are ensured of a warm welcome and every step is taken to avail you of a superb time.
The bar/restaurant is open six days a week and offers a full dining, sports and entertainment package.
Regarding food, it is on offer all day, beginning, logically enough, with breakfast, where you can choose between English, Scottish or Irish varieties.
Lunches and dinners are available, too, and don't expect basic "pub food". This is a full-blown restaurant, serving such things as shoulder of lamb, stroganoff, peppered steak, etc.
There is a Sunday carvery, consisting of a choice of three meats - where you can "eat as much as you like"!
Daytime visitors can take advantage of the pool table, dart board and free wifi, but mainly the showing of live sport events.
These are displayed on screens dotted throughout the venue and include all important matches from football, rugby, gaelic football and cricket. At the appropriate time of year, you'll also be able to keep up with tennis and Formula 1.
At this point, it might be worth mentioning that the Blarney Stone offers cheap drinks all day, up to 9pm. There's a two-for-one offer on local spirits and a pint is 1.50 euros.
Come evening, the entertainment programme kicks in. It begins with a fun quiz, where you can win such things as a boat trip or a trial SCUBA dive.
At 10 o' clock, there is a guest cabaret every night of mostly Irish entertainers - and you know that means fun!
The bar also runs a karaoke session and the revelry continues until the early hours.
And, if all that's not enough, if you're staying somewhere local to the bar, they will pay for your taxi home!

The Blarney Stone is situated in an enviable position just across the road from the beach in Playa de La Arena. To reach it from Las Americas, take the TF-47 coast road to Los Gigantes, accessed at the end of the TF-1 motorway.
Eventually, you'll see a sign saying Puerto Santiago/La Arena, off to the left. Take this and stick to it.
Watch out for a big sign on the right - Caesar's Palace. The Blarney Stone is found in the next block, on the bottom floor, down some steps from street level.
