Nearly popped in going past southbound, tempted by the reasonable (for Stockholm) A Board chalked lunch prices outside...coming back later spotted and heard live music so swept inside and squeezed past a cosy loop of fellas strumming and fiddling Oirish/Bluegrass/Swedish sea shanties, so thought we'd...More

We enjoyed a pub style lunch at this Irish Pub in Gamla Stan in Stockholm. We both had the one of the lunch specials - Swedish meatballs and the burger of the week. Both were excellent. Good sized portion. Good beer selection and great service....More

Typical mock Irish pub, but at least the beer was half decent. Major minus is having to look at Bono while drinking it.

In a area crowded with pubs, the liffey is a very good option. Very nice live music on both floors. The burguers with french fries are quite acceptable

Worst Irish pub i've been in years. No sign of good food, friendly people or good music. Very rude staff and agressive bouncers. If you want to visit a good Irish pub in Stockholm, best to go to the Dubliner.

Great ambiance, lots of Irish guys, very multicultural. Food I got was very basic and too spicy although it was a dinner for an organization for about 100 people so I can't really judge. Beer was good !

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)
