Spain warning to partying Irish as €30,000 fines threatened by police

By Christopher Harper & Anita McSorley

Spain has issued a warning to Irish travellers that they could be hit with a whopping €30,000 fine from police for attending a party.

Holidaymakers in popular sports like Ibiza and Majorca could face huge fines after new laws were introduced following a series of serious incidents that took place on the Spanish islands.

Warnings have been issued against "illegal parties", which aren't uncommon. The parties in question were often commercially promoted in private villas and homes on the islands, Birmingham Live reports.

The new regulations were presented by Balearic councillor for the Presidency, Mercedes Garrido, and the president of the Council of Ibiza, Vicent Mari.

They will come into force this summer in a bid to put a stop to "illegal parties", which they claim have increased "exponentially" in the last two years with the closure of discos due to the pandemic, said Marí.

Some of the headlines of the laws will target landlords who rent out the party properties with huge hundred thousand euro fines.

They could be slapped with anything between a €100,000 and €300,000 euro fine as they will be held responsible.

On top of that, any attendees of the party could be hit with up to €30,000 euro fine depending on the seriousness of their infringement.

Ireland's Department of Foreign Affairs has yet to issue advice on the new laws, however the British Embassy has warned its citizens that they could receive £85,000 (€99,000) fines.

A spokesperson said: "There have been a number of serious accidents involving people attending irregular commercially promoted parties in villas and private homes on the islands of Ibiza and Majorca.

“Licensed clubs and bars are required to meet safety and security standards, including emergency exits and capacity limits, and to have trained, licensed security staff.

"Irregular commercial parties may not meet these standards.

"You should take care of your belongings, ensure you know where emergency exits are located and not take unnecessary risks.

“Heavy fines may be imposed by local authorities to anyone attending irregular commercial parties."
