Updated Jul. 1, 2023. You’re in Lisbon on vacation, where do you go to watch a game and have a few pints? Try one of Lisbon’s Irish or English pubs.
Most of them are located near one another, near the Cais do Sodré metro station, or in Bairro Alto, fairly close to the Baixa-Chiado metro station (both on the green line). They are all open seven days a week.
O’Gilins Irish Pub
Established in 1995, this is Lisbon’s oldest Irish pub, owned by Irishman Conor O’Gillin.
Check their website to see which games they are showing.
They offer live music every night as well, from 8 – 10, with an Irish jam session on Mondays, the Melting Pot house band playing on Fridays and Saturdays, and they offer a pub quiz night on the 1st and 3rd Sundays.
Rua dos Remolares 8, very close to Cais do Sodré metro station

Giving this pub an honorable mention, even though it is neither Irish nor English. It is Portuguese-owned, and it is a Portuguese pub, but the small place gets a lot of love and has great drinks at great prices. And you can watch your game there.
Final word on Lisbon’s Irish and English pubs:
I am not affiliated with any of the businesses mentioned on this page. Some of them might be pricey, and some of them might be touristy, and some of them might be packed. You are in Portugal, not Ireland, or England. Lisbon’s Irish and English pubs all provide a place where you can socialize, watch the fixture, and have a pint or a shot of whiskey.
Sláinte, or Cheers, mate!
I hope you found a good place to watch a game in Lisbon!
