As we enter the month of March, we begin to the look forward to a number of things in the Balearic Islands: warmer temperatures, carnival and the region’s special bank holiday come to mind but there is one more ever-growing event that takes place on the island. St. Patrick’s Day has become more than just a day celebrated amongst the population of Ireland with numerous places around the world now celebrating everything Irish on the 17th March. But what about in Spain, or even more specifically Majorca?
If you’re feeling a little green with envy that you may be missing Ireland’s biggest party of the year, well you may be in luck. There are many opportunities to celebrate your Irish heritage on the island of Majorca. In the Southwestern town of Santa Ponsa, they are yet to dye the Mediterranean Sea green, nor do they reach the heights of New York’s Fifth Avenue parade, however they do host the island biggest St Patrick’s Day celebration.
Santa Ponsa is home to one of the biggest Irish contingencies in the Balearic Islands and for this reason they don’t hold back when the 17th March comes around. Throughout the day you can find a plethora of fun filled events to get the party shamrockin’. Santa Ponsa’s famous Saturday mercadillo will transform in a special St Patrick’s market, whilst there will be live music featuring traditional bands. There will also be free children’s activities available, as well as food and, of course, a pint of Guinness or four.
Whilst at Gran Isla hotels, we are still putting the finishing touches to our hotels in Santa Ponsa during the St. Patrick’s festivities, our 3 family-friendly hotels will reopen their doors in time for the Easter holidays. Pirates Village will be the first to welcome back guests on the 1st April, whilst both Plazamar Serenity Resort and Jutlandia Family Resort will be open from Saturday 13th April.
