Absolutely delicious curry dishes that tingle all the taste buds. Variety makes an all too convenient excuse to have curry every night :-)

The Sexy Curry Company is my main motivation for visiting the James Joyce, as I'm not a big fan of Irish pubs - the 5-star rating is for Sexy Curry Company alone. You simply can't get curry this good in Prague. Every dish is a winner, and the menu caters to all heat tolerance levels. Value for money is also... More

The best part of James Joyce is its consistency. Everything they do is about quality. If you want traditional Irish food, or something from the Sexy Curry Company, it will be very tasty. Here in Prague, there are contests for the best burger. There is no contest. James Joyce has the best burger in town. If you had cheese and... More

Cosy, friendly and non smoking. A fantastic place for small groups to watch sport (make sure you book a table in advance). Excellent waitress service, even in busy periods. What keeps me coming back is that it hosts the Sexy Curry Company. Amazing food with depth of flavour from a chef of Indonesian origin. This is not your typical mass... More

Typical Irish pub in the heart of Prague with great service! There is also included Indian „Sexy Curry“ with delicious food. We enjoyed vegetarian and prawn curry so much!

This is a nice little cosy pub just off Old Town square. Can be a little tricky to find. It is very cosy and homely. They even have a mini Irish shop inside. Staff are pleasant and prices aren't so bad for an Irish bar. The full Irish breakfast here is very nice too!

We have visited 'Irish' bars in many countries and have generally been disappointed for one reason or another. As Irish people perhaps we expect more genuine "irishness" in these theme pubs. Sometimes the only relationship to Ireland are a few Guinness signs and a bit of green. In Prague we had seen two other "Irish" bars but had not been... More

We heard about the Sexy Curry Co. inside the James Joyce Pub from the NYT 36 hours in Prague. It was a bit of a search, off of a side street at a dead end, but was it worth it! All spoke English, some with Irish and British accents, the walls were covered with old photos, soccer game on the... More

Staying in Stare Mesto (Old Town)

Neighborhood Profile
Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
