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

A great pub/restaurant in Stockholm we were lucky enough to discover! Brilliant location with approximately 2 minute walk from the metro station. Gamla Stan is really nice to walk around and The Liffey pub is a great place to walk into.... Good atmosphere, crowd and music....Live music in the evenings too....the singer really worked the crowd and we were all... More

We at here Saturday with some friends. The Liffey was not taking reservations due to a hockey tourney, but when I called and explained to them it was a birthday, they said they would try their best to help us out. Well, they did a wonderful job. The food was fantastic-we had 2 vegetarians in our group and the server... More

By using the site bookatable.com we made a reservation to have diner here. We got the confirmation mail from bookatable so everything looked fine. However, when we arrived at the pub the waitress didn't receive the booking. Instead she was rather insulting and blamed us basically that we made the booking online. No excuse or what so ever. Terrible service!

We went there three times in three days - nice for drinking beer and whiskey, even though the prices are quite something (but still in line with Stockholm's prices, remember you are in Gamla Stan!). You can find sightly cheaper places, but I think the vibe you get here is worthy. We had dinner once, the beef burger was awesome.... More

Swedes celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve, so there were not many choices for visitors...we almost gave up and then turned the corner in Old Town and found "The Liffey"....we enjoyed Swedish beer, in an Irish Pub on Christmas Eve with an English bartender watching "It's a Wonderful Life"...priceless...Great service-great beer-great atmosphere!!!!

Have been here sometimes, great place. Very good food and drink at a good price for stockholm and oldtown. Most bartenders are great but the little blonde bartender is one weird caracter. You can meet people from all over the world here from norway to new zealand 😊. The atmosphere is great. Will be back many times more.
