|James Joyce is a little piece of Ireland in a quiet corner of Prague, located just five minutes walk from the Old Town Square.|
James Joyce is a traditional Irish pub with a casual atmosphere, offering visitors a warm and hearty welcome.
Beer is taken seriously here - James Joyce prides itself on serving some of the finest Guinness in Prague, as well as other international beers and fresh Czech lagers such as Pilsner Urquell and Gambrinus.
There is cider too, wine by the glass, and one of the widest selections of Irish whiskeys in the city.
Prices are quite reasonable for all drinks, which makes it a popular bar with expats and Czech locals amongst others.
There is TV coverage of major sports occasions, including important football matches, but this aspect is low key compared to other sports bars in the city - it's only the big games that get a screening.
Having said this, on the occasions that the big screen is pulled down in the back room, the picture is large and crisp, and makes for enjoyable viewing.
On cold winter days and nights there is a roaring fire to warm you up.
In summer, a terrace opens in front of the pub, where visitors can enjoy a drink outside in this quiet, laid back part of the Old Town.
Pub Quiz Night: Most Monday nights the bar runs a pub quiz, starting at 19:30. If you are interested, check in advance to make sure it is running. Teams of up to 5 people: 50 CZK.
Finally, live singers, guitarists and bands feature from time to time, but times vary according to other events the pub is hosting, or if there is a big match on the screen.
The décor at James Joyce is perhaps the most authentic of any Irish pub in Prague. For a decent pint, good company and a calm atmosphere, James Joyce is a fine option.
