Very cool Irish Pub a short distance from the Jewish Quarter in Prague. Definitely worth a visit to relax while you continue visiting the sacred Jewish locations through the north of Prague and while admiring the Art Nouveau Buildings in the area. You will enjoy the laid back atmosphere and very inexpensive prices at this pub.

Nice cosy atmosphere, with a roaring fire, great Guinness, BLT and a jolly good Irish Coffee! Service was with a smile.

Stopped for a pint and nosh before unpacking at swan apartment across road. Owner Frank stopped by several times to chat and offer Prague tourism advice. Fish and chips was well presented, my bangers and mash had fine charred onion gravy, but mash had raw scallions throughout, and raw onions are not my friend. Good to have a "local" like... More

We arrived just towards the end of lunchtime specials, yet we were the only customers there.Seemed small but good layout. Grilled salmon steak with potatoes and salad good. battered haddock, chips tartar sauce and tiny portion mushy peas was just about passable. Food not great value, a bit pricey.Drinks good value.

We had nothing planned so decided at the last minute to drop into the James Joyce for dinner. We arrived just before 8. The food was very good for pub food and reasonably priced but a bit more expensive than the average. The absolute highlight was the live music! Two Czech gents with guitars playing and singing all the favourites... More

Hidden away, off the usual tourist train. a trifle anonymous...all the things which add to the already considerable charm of the place. Unlike many of the plastic assembly-kit 'Oirish' pubs the JJB has a genuine feel of Ireland. The photos around the place were wonderful, the layout was spacious enough to be private, and the staff were all friendly and... More

My wife is a chef so she is pretty picky, and often complains when i drag her to an Irish pub, thank god this past... More

A Rick Steves recommendation...right off of Old Town square but we got lost...on a side street in a nice district....Great food and atmosphere...the owner talked to us for quite awhile- Ask him about the pictures on the wall....he is in one of them...One in our group had a "sexy sticky carmel dessert" which was shared and raved about-
