    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.

    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

    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.

    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"

    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!

    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.

    The food was average at best (nachos, wings, ribeye). The beers and the bar were great. Guinness rules!

    Classic Irish bar, very well decorated. Great service, bad selection of beers. If you want to drink something good just don’t go.
