7. Red Lion Pub, Qawra

This sports bar in Malta’s northern seaside town is the perfect spot to get away from the St Paddy’s crowds and enjoy a cold one, or four! They’re even giving out a free hat with every three pints of Guinness (until stock lasts). Red Lion Pub boasts quite the menu too (order the Sunday roast - trust us!), so you can sit in all day, sip on drinks, eat some delish food and watch the footy. #XiTridIktar?
