The place to be for pints and football. Lovely atmosphere, friendly staff and very good service. Good also for happy hours and free BBQ on Fridays.

Like the previous reviewer, I was there on quiz night, more's the pity. All the questions were bellowed at top volume, making conversation with local friends all but impossible. At least I was able to watch Chelsea winning a match on television, but would gladly have given this up for a bit of peace and quiet. OK if you're a... More

I could not believe that we had travelled all the way from Northumberland to Kosovo to find ourselves winning a pub quiz set and delivered by a guy from Sunderland! Paddy O'Brien's is a real ex-pat haven and when we visited it was full of Brits, Aussies, Americans and Scandinavians as well as the Kosovans who like a drop of... More

My wife and I were extremely lucky when we lived in Nanjing, finding an Irish pub not 5 minute's walk away from our home. Ex-pats need a diversion from reality now and again, and this time, in Kosovo, we have found another Irish pub, albeit a 40 minute minivan ride from where we live in Mitrovica. This is a lovely...

Typical Irish Bar, very busy on my visit, could have been the England Scotland Rugby match on the TV. Good selection of beer, food OK, large portions as I have found is the case in Kosovo. Full of Ex pats if that is your bag. If you want a quiet meal, choose somewhere else. Two power outages whilst there but... More

As Irish pubs go it is fine - and is very convenient location just off the main pedestrianised street. The pub is full of ex-pats from the UK, and frankly if you are in an exciting and developing city in the Balkans, why go to an Irish pub?

The best Sheppard’s pie I ate was there. They tend not to have the smoothies but they res of the things on the menu are great. Wonderful atmosphere, great trivia nights, amazing singing parties… In one sentence truly Irish in every meaning of the word.

Great location and atmosphere! The food is delicious and there are often expats hanging around if you're interested in meeting any of them!

It seems like there's an Irish pub in every major city in the Balkans and this is it for Pristina. It is a good place to go for a pint of Guiness and some tasty bar food.
