Had a few drinks here in early March 2017, drinks were well priced. Didn't eat here. There seemed to be a lot of "goings on" around the bar making for a bit of an uncomfortable atmosphere but overall, it was ok.

This was definitely more of a nightclub than a pub! For the young only unless you like rave music. Drinks served in plastic cups, floor sticky - not an Irish pub!

This pub has jumped on the Irish theme and is no way Irish which shows in how empty it was. However it was friendly.

Had a couple of drinks in this pub before a nice meal out. The pub is nothing special, they had happy hour but they did not advertise it. They also ran out of a couple of different drinks which is not good. You do get a nice view from the drinking area just outside the bar. Bottom line is that... More

I booked the terrace in Ryan's for a group of fifty or more to watch the Ireland euro match on June 22nd. These were guests in Malta attending my wedding. On the evening my group arrived and the majority of the adults bought burgers and fries and through the course of the match plenty was spent on alcohol. There were... More

After seeing it tucked away on the hill from the bus we made a special trip there. Unfortunately Ryan's was closed at 15:00 when we stopped by Tuesday during the ES Cup. Perhaps another time.

Went on Saturday night (local area was buzzing) but after walking through a few outdoor tables with customers, we sat inside, and - nobody. Dead as a dodo. Not worth staying for more than one pint so ambled off again.

I went with a friend to watch the England v Wales match at Euro 2016 and the atmosphere was fantastic. There were plenty of screens, the place was packed and a good time was had by all.

Great bar but suffering massive beer shortage! At least two beers that we would have wanted to order were off.

At Ryan's Irish Pub you can pick up a casual bite to eat and enjoy your favourite beer on draught - it's a place where lunch rolls on into the evening.

Ryan's Sundays parties are popular with the younger crowd and the place turns into a bona-fide club as a result.
