Looe is a very lively all-year round town but at Christmas and New Year there is a fantastic party atmosphere around the area. On Christmas day you can go for an exhilarating walk along the Coastal Path then return to a warm and cosy TYRINA for a scrumptious Christmas dinner or, if you prefer, go out for lunch at one of the many establishments around.
On New Years Eve the whole town has a party. Everybody wears fancy dress and parades around town visiting the various hostelries. There are usually some amazing costumes. Many of the restaurants have special arrangements where you book a table for the evening and you can come and go as you please during the celebrations. The whole evening is brought to a finale with a spectacular firework display on the Banjo Pier at midnight.. There is a fantastic shop in East Looe which sells all kinds of fancy dress, eg. masks, wigs, fairy wings, face paint, hats and many other accessories, so you donít have to give it too much thought before you travel down to Looe.
