Just returned from fuengirola and discovered jb’s. it is such a true Irish bar with jb making you welcome. The craic is great and the Guinness is to die for. I’ll be back soon.

J.B. Burkes If you want a lovely pint of Guinness in a real Irish bar J.B’s is the place to go. It is one of the very few original Irish bars, and probably the best in Fuengirola. Don’t expect a flash bar with loud music...More

There are lots of bars in fuengirola that claim to be irish but this pub really is the only irish pub there! There is plenty of seating and the owner is very friendly and lovely to chat too!

There are so many pubs in Fungarolia that are 'Irish' however this was the only one that is owned and run by an Irish man. Even looking at it from the outside you know it's true to its name
