“Great range of beers, great atmosphere!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

We went in just for drinks and it was packed! Great atmosphere with live music ongoing downstairs. There was a huge range of beers both on draught and bottled and the staff were very friendly. Good find in Gamla Stan.

“Smashing Pub for some fun and atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Pints were cheaper than in other establishments, old town being our choice of refrshement, the pub being in the old town as well and close to several other establishments though room-wise, pub layout, décor and atmosphere all seemed the best of the pubs we were in hence we revisited several times - liked the facilities, bar staff very friendly, accommodating and into the spirit of the football weekend, the front bar is narrow so if packed, best to go downstairs which has nice enclaves and relaxing, stairs down is a tad steep - or at the back, a nice tv room, with a dartboard where we had some smashing games of darts over the four day trip to Stockholm for the Irish football match and yes the pub was warm warm given the cold of that weekend when we played Sweden in the Friends stadium (excellent stadium, and so glad they kept the roof closed).

“If you don't know it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

I've been brought there during a business trip in Stockholm by italian-swedish friends that I wasn't in touch for the past 20 years. It has been a lovely reunion in a lovely place, that you can't spot even if you pass in front of it. Entrance is very small, always crowded, and you believe the pub is just ends there. You're wrong! There's a stair that brings you really underground in rooms like caves that appear to have been used as cellars in the past centuries. There's a kind of dark atmosphere that let you enjoy the time you're spending with your mates, eventually listening to live music.

“Home away from Home Best Pub in Stockholm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

A group of us tavelled over for the Sweden Ireland Game and made Contact with Martin Hession and his staff before we travelled. Martin is a native of my hometown Athenry who has lived in Stockholm for 16 years. From the moment we arrived we were looked after superbly by the all Irish Staff who looked after the locals and visitors equally and they had put on special prices for all for the five days not like the other Irish Bars who ripped off their visitors.

The pub has a unique atmosphere and its well worth exploring all its nooks and crannies.We ate their all three days and the food was beautiful and plenty of it. We were wary going to Stockholm as we were told we would be fleeced but a lot of pubs in Dublin should take a leaf out Wirstroms Magic book a pub we will never forget and the blues band that played there at the weekend topped the lot.

Thanks Martin we will be back if we are drawn against Sweden again. Call in for a pint or a meal if your in Stockholm you wont regret it.

“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Great pub, with fair enough prices aswell. Stockholm has large choice of Irish pubs, and many of them pure rip-off joints. Wirstroms is an exception though with a fair price for a pint and a great atmosphere. Good food too btw.
