Advantages Friendly, inexpensive, welcoming and Irish.
Disadvantages Not on a main road
For us the nicest pub in that area & certainly the friendliest especially since we've tried many. Evenings were best with various music & not too loud. Not on the main road though (try maltamaltamalta.com/locations/st-pauls-bay-xemxija) so could miss it but better with the map above. Closest hotel is the San Pawl. It seems like the quiter part of town but that's an advantage more often than not. Also offers food including proper irish dishes. We had meals at the hotel but we saw food being served which looked very nice. Happy to recommend this pub as feels like an irish bar more than the other ...
