Situated in the old town district of Stockholm, We called in to The Liffey to warm up on a cold Sunday morning and for a quick drink. We ended up staying for a few hours! Their hot wings sounded amazing but they didn't have any left so we opted for the fries with bernaise and chipotle mayo - loved it!... More

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

If you are looking for a cold brew and a place to rest your feet while walking the streets of Stockholm drop into Liffey's Irish Pub. Great food and cold drinks. Average prices great service.

Staying in Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen

Neighbourhood 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.
