    James Joyce is among the oldest,most iconic places in Athens.An true pub with friendly staff, ready to quench your thirst with divine draft Guinness.A must for St.Patrick's and on P.L. match days.

    The best Irish pub in Athens! So cozy and beautifully decorated. Delicious food in huge portions to have with your beer. Try the nachos, they are really good!

    One of the best Irish pubs in the center of Athens...Everything is perfect and if you're lucky you may have the opportunity to enjoy awesome gigs :-)

    Nice music. Fun to watch Premier League games while drinking your delicious dark beer. Tasty hot wings and etc. I do visit once a week and I love to spend time here alone or with friends...

    I love this Irish pub in the centre of Athens! The atmosphere is quite original - and since all the waitresses speak English, you kinda feel like you left Greece. Drink Guinness on tap, of course.

    Dearly beloved pub. Love the staff and owner, great vibe, slightly pricey food for a casual place in Athens but huge portions. Love the vibe, hate the smoke though. Not a fault of the pub but culture

    My favourite place in Athens for the night. The perfect irish pub. Try the classic fish n' chips with coleslaw sauce, the onion rings platter and the chicken wings. Great environment with live music!

    Irish pub with very good staff and too many kind of different beers is located at the historical centre of Athens.It's a little expensive but you think that you are in a another country."like a trip"

    Food is great and there are many beer options. The decor is authentic and looks Irish. In the summer sit outside and enjoy a cold glass of Guinness!

    I love the steak sandwich! Very good food in general. The service is a bit slow. Being a long time fan though, what can I say? Guinness!!!11

    Excellent feel of a pub due to long wooden bars. Decent amount of beers to choose from but not as many as a beer house. Food's excellent if not a bit pricey. The kitchen is rather slow when it's full.

    Normal Irish pub beer selection. So if you're after a pint of Guinness this is your place. Wi-fi (password guinness) worked well.

    Ωραίες draught, ωραία μεζεδάκια, ακόμα πιο ωραία ατμόσφαιρα. Νομίζεις ότι βρίσκεσαι στην Ιρλανδία. Ένα κεμπάπ μετά στο Θανάση σε προσγειώνει ομαλά στη πραγματικότητα. Φοβερό μέρος.

    Από τα χειρότερα burger που μπορεί να φάει κάποιος στην Αθήνα. Άνοστο & πολύ φτωχό σε υλικά. Ζήτησα καλοψημένο μπιφτέκι αλλά τελικά αναγκάστηκα να το απομακρύνω από τη σαλάτα για να μην βοσκήσει.

    Δεν νομιζω πως υπάρχει πιάτο που θα απογοητευσει. Σίγουρα δοκιμαστε τα specials του Σαββατοκύριακου. Θα απεφευγα τις μέρες με ποδοσφαιρικούς αγώνες Αγγλίας. Γίνεται το αδιαχωρητο
