Large beers, noisy tvs and lots of old men -a classic Irish pub. The staff were friendly and the burgers were delicious. This pub is so classic it could be anywhere in the world, or in Ireland itself. Good stuff.

Is an old fashioned pub that could easily fit in any central european town. Cheap beer, friendly staff and non-smoking. A little hidden but well worth finding as it's a couple of minutes walk from the expensive spots.

Such a lovely cosy pub in Prague. A stroll off the old town square but certainly well worth a visit. The food is so so tasty. Had dinner there plus a full Irish breakfast both were the very best. Had a few beers there a couple of nights. The staff are so welcoming and chatty. Cleanliness is top class. Certainly... More

I visited the pub on my own as I was staying in a holiday apt opposite and my friend left a day earlier than me. The beer is great- classic Guiness plus an Irish IPA, all the usual Czech lager staples and a couple of guest beers which were both great. On a quiet Sunday night I was made to... More

I have argued with an Irish limericist, kissed an Austrian count, ended up leaving for a midnight unplanned three day bike ride to the countryside , and drank until I couldn't stumble back without closing one eye. Best pub ever. Ever.

Neighbourhood Profile
Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods 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.
