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-

I was looking forward to a hearty meal and a pint of Guinness in a place with a nice atmosphere, and I got it all, plus a friendly welcome from the staff. The only thing that disappointed me was my Fish & Chips meal, where I expected to get a whole fish, not just a small piece..especially for the price.

James Joyce is Irish pub in a small, quiet and a bit hidden street in the centre of Prague. I have been living in Prague for ages, but it was the first time when I passed through this street. James Joyce secret is that they are associated with Sexy Curry Company. So you can order there a part of fish... More

We, a group of three, visited the pub several times during our stay in Prague. James Joyce is one of the most fantastic and cozy pubs we’ve ever been to. We experienced a pleasantly attentive service by a very friendly and smiling staff, superb food and great live music. One feels welcome in this pub that creates an excellent atmosphere.... More

I've found this place looking for a spots that show football on large screen. The idea was to leave my husband there with few pints of beer while doing some shopping myself. However, I stayed, drunk wine, ate, had tea, coffee and really good time. The food they serve was absolutely delicious, and in addition really cheap. Some American expats... More

If you want to visit an Irish pub in Prague. This is it. Makes everyone else seem like cheap knock offs. Great staff. Great drinks and really good food. Also a bit hidden so you don't have to meet stag parties.

I stopped by several times on my recent trip to Prague; it is a very nice Irish pub managed by very friendly people. I ate outside, a wonderful place to recuperate from the miles of walking.

We read about this charming Irish Pub in the New York Times and we were not disappointed. The Sexy Curry Company was also in the pub giving patrons a wide variety of offerings. The bartender even brewed fresh unsweetened ice tea for me, which is almost impossible to find in Prague. We had some tasty soup and some sexy curry... More

By accident we found this nice looking Irish Pub. Very friendly people running the place. Go and have a bite here. Good food(we even got the recipe for the food we ate here), good beer/cider. What more do you want :)
