A bit of Ireland in Sweden

Friendly bartenders, and good selection of Scandinavian and Irish beers, a glorious wall of single malt whiskies, live music most nights and Tuesday Night Trivia (I dropped in and joined a team that took second place by only one point!).

Called in here for a couple of beers while visiting Gamla Stan. Friendly bar staff and atmosphere, good selection of beers. Didn't eat here but food looked and smelled appetising. If it wasn't for fact we were travelling on the next day and needed to pack etc, we could have settled in for quite a session!

Stumbled across this place while looking for somewhere to watch the FA cup final, big screens, knowledgeable bar staff, would suggest sitting upstairs rather than in the basement, but a great find.

Don't miss the live music here. Wonderful crowd involvement singing along with many American classics. Interesting to be in a bar in Sweden and hear Swedes singing great American songs from the 1960s and 70s. Enjoy a pint and song. Trivia night on Tuesday is fun and challenging as well.

Just after palace's visit, you can go there for a break. Just to drink a beer with a good selection or also to eat. I recomend the fish and chips with the catch of the day, wrap in salmon filet. Original and tasty. On screen sport event, service with smile, and with good timing.

A good bar to drop in if you feel like a pint and listening to some music. They have really good troubadours (the Swedish term - person with guitar to you and me), and the quality of music is really very high. A wild mix of guests, tourists of course, but quite a few actual Irish customers - which is... More

Oh wow.....this place does a damn good burger. And I'm an expert. We found this place on our first night whilst we were walking around Gamla Stan. It doesn't scream and shout from the outside but do try it and you won't be disappointed. It looks like a quite typical British style pub when you go in so we felt... More

... perhaps that doesn't matter. We were looking for a place to have a couple of drinks on a Sunday night after 9pm. The streets of Gamla Stan roll up after 8pm and so it was nice to find this warm, friendly place. Yes, the service is a little on the slack side, but there was one bartender, one "waitress"... More

Been there last night dining with my family and I can definitely admit I had the worst experience ever in a pub. We noticed the pub as on outside board god reported live music from 9pm. We get in, someone gives us a table and all fine. order for drinks comes after few minutes, even though pub wasn't busy yet... More
