McGuinness' is a typical Irish Pub run and owned by a young Irish couple. Their aim is to create a home from home little gem in the beautiful area of San Luis de Sabinillas. There is a delicious home cooked breakfast made by Micheal and being Irish owned and Irish run with Guinness and Kilkenny Red Ale on draught certainly gives you the feeling that you are at home in Ireland.
