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

It used to be a great pub but now it is full of stag groups who are very loud and offensive. They should kick these people out.

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.

While visiting Prague, I revisited James Joyce Pub after two years due to the good memories of the place. And we were certainly not disappointed, James Joyce Pub is still fantastic. Food and drinks are very good at fair prices. The live music was nice as well. However what really makes this pub outstanding is the splendid friendly service which... More

In the 1990s, numerous Czech natives went to Ireland during its tech and call center boom. When the bubble burst and those Czech came home, they had grown so accustomed to Irish cuisine that one of them opened this great pub that showcases great Irish food and beer. We've been here on several trips to Prague, most recently with our... More

This is a really nice bar, with warm & friendly staff, who understand how Ireland works in Prague. There is a huge range of Irish whiskeys (ask for a full list). Also consider a shot of baby guiness, just for fun. Hidden away down a sidestreet it offers a place away from rowdy groups common in the more central pubs... More

I spent my summer in Prague and I visited James Joyce at least 3 times a week. I always had an amazing time - good drinks, award-winning food, friendly, welcoming environment and the best staff in Prague!!! Missing you James Joyce, you'll always have a special place in my heart <3 I'll be back for sure xx

I visited James Joyce on Saturday night just to have a few beers and watch football and next day lunch time to have something to eat. Beer and service was exceptional. Food was alright. Atmosphere is quite authentic as well.

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.
