I have come to this place with a couple of friends for late afternoon drink. The service and drinks are good and pleasant, food is a bit of avarage. If you want to hide from the main touristic buzz and still sty in the city center go for this place.

Excellent no-smoking Irish pub, offering a good menu selection, cool beer and extremely friendly and welcoming staff. A must visit place for a brilliant sports TV location here in Prague, one of the best!!!!

Great pub food. Shepard's Pie was delicious. Greek salad, fish fry and cheeseburgers are also good. Prices a little higher than traditional Czech food.

A quick afternoon stop for some food led us here where we had the daily soup and apple pie a la mode. A wonderful afternoon snack and the service was excellent.

Affable staff. Great terrace to recover in the Prague sun. One of those places that simply exudes personality. A great place to have a beer in the summer months.

We were only in the pub for a couple of drinks but as an Irish Bar it did remind me of a few place back home. The decorations and style of bar were true to an Irish Bar not like some other places in Prague. Lovely quite area with a few outside seats.

Dropped in here for a few beers and spent a pleasurable hour sitting outside and sampling their beer choices. Friendly service (which does happen everywhere in Prague), good beer and food, you can't go wrong with this place.

Thank Grung73

Neighborhood Profile
Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
