We stopped into McCarthy's to see how Irish a pub in Spain could be, and it was very Irish!! They properly poured a Guinness! They had a good beer and liquor selection. The staff was great and a lot of fun.

Tina & Louise are truly great hosts for this typical Irish Bar. Rough and ready but then its the cliental and the staff that make a Bar. Recommended a great Tapas Restaurant, a fun and jolly place to go.

Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this
picturesque neighbourhood is the very heart of
Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days
under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War
with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and
authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be
thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas
brought to life by the many small bars and local
