The upper level was packed and full of vibrant Irish music. The place was cozy and inviting. We settled in the "cellar" or basement area that had a rustic charm to it. The beer selection was fine and so were the prices but the atmosphere was the best part about it. Would love to go back and spend more time.

Called in for a quick drink and whilst it was quiet the team were friendly enough it did lack a little atmosphere and I found it really cold so kept my coat on but cheapish beer after work for the area

Whenever visiting Gamlastan we try and pop in here and usually end up staying for hours playing darts and drinking beers downstairs. A pretty good selection of beers, great food and super nice barmaids.

Went there with some friends had great time, few drinks and some nice food. Would recommend going into the cave bar and the blue cheese bacon burger.

Incredible atmosphere in the place. Music playing and everybody in a good mood. The place is rather narrow and requires flexibility from customers to get around. If you looking for a really good Irish pub in Stockholm this is your place.

Loved watching the Liverpool match today at O'Connell's. The Swedish meatballs & mash was absolutely amazing - totally savoured each bite. The cheese burger was very good as well. Great place and really friendly staff. Would definitely come again!

I found that place in August 2014 during a first trip to Stockholm,it was a nice,cosy found.The building is a good example of an old architecture,at the ground floor you can sit in benches ( imagine you are is an old brick wine celular).There is another bar where you can order your beverage without coming up to first floor.

The decor is about the only thing that gives even a hint of this place being an Irish Pub. We encountered terrible service and I am pretty sure they are using far too much detergent in their glass washer (bar owner with 15 years experience). There are lots of better alternative in Stockholm.

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.
