I stopped by with my girlfriend after the recommendation from TripAdvisor application and effectively very nice place. The burgers were delicious the atmosphere cosy and we even got a concert of a guy and his guitar. I could complain about the noise but what do you expect? This is an Irish pub ;) !

The meal is good, the service is good, but the best part in my opinion is the Pub Quiz. I was here with some friends and we had fun, but you need to get early, it is usually crowded.

I had a steak sandwich which was so destroyed with salt in the sauce that I almost gagged on it. My son ordered a burger with cheese and stressed to waitress NO salad or vegetables and... More

I'm very sorry you didn't have a good experience at the liffey, We have our pay in advance system when people sit outside to avoid people leaving without paying, as this is a big city and a tourist area it happens from time to time, so it was impossible to offer a refund, however you were given the option to...

Very nice Irish Pub in Stockholm, situated in Gamla Stan (Old Town). It's lying on a calmer street, and the interior is giving you that real pub-feeling. I have been here twice, and I really liked the visit both times. The food is really very good, and the staff is friendly. It's really worh a visit!

Was in Stockholm on business during the early stages of the World Cup, and my Irish colleague recommended The Liffey for both atmosphere and food. Happy to report he was right. The atmosphere was great for a World Cup match, with the place filling up starting around 5 minutes prior to kickoff. The beer selection is decent, featuring Scandinavian and... More

Excellent food and good service in the old part of Stockholm, worth a visit. Cost about £60 for 2 courses each and 1 alcoholic drink each.

Me and my boyfriend called into this pub to watch a football match while we were away. It's really nice pub, lovely interior, more than one toilet which I was pleased to see and another quieter bar downstairs. However how it can call itself an Irish Bar I have no idea. The furniture was dark and square exactly like what... More
