Editor's review

This Irish pub has it all - from the draught Guinness and Kilkenny you'd normally expect - in fact, in 2007, they were awarded first place for quality in Poland's Guinness competition (which means they have the best Guinness in Poland!) - to all the traditional knick-knacks and old Irish memorabilia that have somehow made it all the way to Cracow from the Emerald Isle. There's a big screen television and several plasmas for football matches, but it hasn't yet become a favourite haunt of the expat crowd - not necessarily a bad thing. Irish Pub Pod Papugami also retains a lot of the charm of normal Polish pubs, offering local beers, as well as popular cakes such as apple pie and cheesecake. There's also a pool table in the basement. Open from noon until 3 in the morning, tables can be reserved in advance.

had a great wk/end in krakow and spent most of our time in your bar,the 2 kisias and issobelle were great they put up with a lot from us as we were on a stag ,so were quite noisy,but had a great time the beer was good and plenty of shots too.spent over 12 hrs in there on sunday,and only just caught our flight home,but it was a good night.thanks again to kisia 1 and kisia 2,and issobelle,for looking after us.xx

Dench Guy from United Kingdom Reply Nov 5th, 2012

Really good spot and fantastic barmaids. Unfortunately when we were there, there were about 10 rowdy idiots who wouldn't stop screaming the word DENCH; smashing shit up; and getting their dicks out. Think one of them was called 'Hugo'... Other than that, it was a dench place.

Scott & friends from United States Reply Mar 5th, 2012

Last weekend it was about minus 20c, with thick snow on the ground. We did the usual sights and then the cold got the better of us and we retreated to this pub for the remainder of our trip. We could not have been made more welcome.

Franko from Ireland Reply Nov 8th, 2010

Johnny Dvergsdal from Norway Reply Jun 26th, 2010

This must be the best Irish pub in Krakow, without doubt. Me and my friends have made many good memories of this pub and from people who work there. I will really miss the people and the atmosphere at the Irish pub. :-)

The bar is nice, very good music, good beer, good atmosphere. Unfortunately one of the staff members (big, beer belly and almost bald) was very unfriendly.

This is down stairs and it was quite dark. Once you get used to that - it is ok for a drink and play pool - sports are generally played on the TV.

Nice feel to the place and friendly staff - food a bit basic

Izzy from United Kingdom Reply Apr 19th, 2005

We had such a good time the first night we came here, we came back on the second! Very small bar area so you may have to wait a while to be servd.

Maureen from United States Reply Sep 29th, 2004

Tom keeps an eye on all guests and looks after everyone very well. The wait staff were extremely attentive and very sweet. We had a great time here as part of a short visit to a beautiful city in which we didn't know much (any?) of the local language.

Nicole from Poland Reply Jan 28th, 2004

A very interesting pub, i recommend it to everyone who likes playing pool.
