A nice friendly Irish pub in the backstreets of Gamla Stan, Liffey is well worth a visit whilst you're in Stockholm.

We stopped for a burger and a refreshing beer and of course soocer. Ireland were playing their first World Cup qualifying game. The game was good, burger was bad and my German Spaten beer was very flat. What more can I say? Probably not the best Irish in town.

Visited with a group of mates when in town for the Leicester Barcelona game. Good Guinness and plenty of local and international beers. Good staff and handy location in the middle of the old town.

I have been to this place many times, it's very central in the heart of the old town, not far from the subway stop (Gamlastan). They have live music almost everyday performed by infamous local and international artist.. This is a platform for them to get their chance maybe .. The atmosphere is really nice, food is good. Strongly recommended... More

What first seemed to be a nice touch to the Irish pub was what seemed to be a Irish waiter but he turned out to be very rude. After ordering a vegan burger (which was not vegan and the waitress didn't seem to even understand what vegan was) and getting no service and chance to pay my friend and I... More

Nice Irish pub in the heart of old town Stockholm. Staff was extremely friendly, fast simple burgers and Guinness. Only wish the Guinness was colder.

We were in the mood for dish and chips. We found our treat in this Irish pub in the old city on Stora street. We sat outside in the open air to enjoy the beautiful weather. Service is not great, the waitor will ask you to go inside to give the order. If you need a drink you have to... More

Staying in Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen

Neighborhood Profile
Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting: take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest) alleys, which will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time. This neighborhood offers a great combination of historical buildings and traditional Swedish restaurants.
