We serve food all day, show live sports, including, rugby, soccer, american football, tennis and golf, as well as having live music. We have an outdoor terrace throughout the year. Our bartenders speak several languages, including English, Spanish, Italian and French. We have a langauge exchange, for those who want to practice their Spanish or English, on Monday evenings from 8.30pm. We also have a private room for parties and celebrations. We hope you can come by to experience a little bit of Ireland in Spain!

The service was great. We had drinks outside and free tapas. You can smoke and enjoy the Spanish scenery.

The guinness and the food were great and not expensive. I had the Irish stew and the meat just fell apart. The waiters are very friendly

I ate here with my wife. It was splendid and the staff was prompt and kind. I have no complaints, the atmosphere is pleasant. I have egg allergies. They were able to cater to my allergies which I appreciate. Many restaurants in Spain have not been doing that. I ate a chicken sandwich and my wife had a club sandwich. The location of the restaurant is near the bus hub. A big park is close by. If you like Irish Pubs then this place is a must.

We visited this pub to watch a World Cup Rugby match at 10.30am. There are plenty of screens to view the match from anywhere in the pub. We ordered breakfast which was tasty and plentiful. The only downside was when I ordered tea, I got the smallest teapot I have ever seen, barely a mouth full. Apart from this the experience was good with lots of atmosphere. The staff were friendly and efficient.

Want to watch sports and have a beer, go to the James Joyce, if there is something you want to watch, just ask.
There are plenty of staff who enjoy sports and will try to help out.
