Forget a well-oiled democratic political system, smooth-running bureaucracy, reliable emergency services, extensive transport links and a sound market economy. A city needs only two things to achieve modern civilization: a McDonalds and an Irish Pub. Have you ever been to a city without them? We haven't and we've been all the way to Novisibirsk in Siberia - a case of one pint of Guinness coming right up! Wroclaw's version is everything you have come to expect from these ubiquitous havens, and serves as home away from home for the town's expat community.

i think you lot writing bad reports here are jumped up and expect a red carpet rolled out just cos your irish. as for the others, its irish themed. not a place in ireland. its called trying to get it right and if you cant appreciate the effort gone into it then dont go back cos you aint wanted. i go every year to wroclaw and i think this bar is great.

suprised this place is still in business,if it was out of town it would allready be bankrupt..had to ask for my change,otherwise i would not have received it....also well overpriced and staff are so so rude...

Worst pub we visited in the whole of Wroclaw! Ordered 2 whiskies which cost an absolute fortune and a gin and tonic. Before I even had a chance to lift the gin and tonic, I knocked it over by accident and the barman just looked at me - did not even offer to replace it, I even mopped it up myself! The place was dark, dingy and smelly - I would not recommend this pub to anyone and certainly will never visit it again!

Terrible place. Dank inside. No wonder it was empty at 7:30 pm on a Friday night. The barkeep was surly. Even a Yank knows how a Guinness is poured, or more to the point, NOT poured correctly. Thankfully I opted for a Kilkenny. Was overpriced so I was one and done.........

If you want to be treated like a second class citizen, this may well be the bar for you. Over priced beer and staff with shed loads of bad attitude.

We were there several times over the past couple of days and whilst it may lack the "local" expat crowd, for me it was Irish enough to call it our home for 3 days ! Guinness very good and cheaper than in Warsaw, food up to scratch and owner and staff very friendly.
Bob from Ireland Reply
Can we stop calling this an Irish bar! This is NOT an Irish bar. Green furniture and the ability to purchase a particular product does not make an Irish bar. No atmosphere. Unhelpful staff. Ridiculously expensive. NOT an Irish bar. For the record, there is no Irish bar in Wroclaw so stop looking.

Paul from United Kingdom Reply
It's your typical 'Irish pub but not in Ireland' venue. Waitresses were efficient and the live band we saw on Saturday night were excellent. But the prices are naughty; you would pay less in England. If you don't HAVE to drink Guinness, there are other places nearby at less than half the cost.
Ted from Ireland Reply
visited last xmas! a total rip off!going back to wroclaw in july but staying clear of this place! ignorant staff!not a good pint of guinness for the price!its far from an irish pub!
Kent from United Kingdom Reply
Terrible place! Avoid at all costs. The beer is expensive compared to all others in the area and the staff is lazy. Also, there are usual only a few people there during the week who are complete bastards.
Kris from United States Reply
This place sucks! There are a few regulars who are total a-holes and the bar staff is lazy. Don't go here!

rip off city , the pub i mean you cant smoke downstairs , but you can upstairs..where the prices are double furthermore you cant bring a drink from downstairs upstairs.....dont go unless you have money to burn my wife is polish and so we spend a lot of time over there....the price of beer in the whole of the rynek....ie town centre is inflated....but ok its a lovely place to have a drink....accepted but this place really takes the mickey...you can get a lovely pint , well a bit more than a pint , for a quid even in the rynek if you look around....do yiou really want to come to poland and pay expensive prices for a drink.....ie 3 quid for some tatty english bitter or poorly kept guiness...or might it not be better to have a nice drink in one of the many bars in wroclaw that DONT aim to rip you off have a great time in wroclaw its lovely , but unless you are loaded dont visit this establishment
Elisha from United Kingdom Reply
I've been to many places in Wrocław, and this place is the worst. Rude service, poor beer (especially for the price) and terrible music while the football is on. Seriously, all foreign tourists would do a lot better to check out from Polish places where the beer is more likely to be good (especially if they don't just have the boring standard brands like Warka) and the people are friendlier.

Not an irish bar and im irish when i walked in it became more irish than probably its been all year and not everyone in ireland listens to enya or that country rubbish

Possibly the worst pub in Wroclaw, complete tourist rip off. One price for Polish a higher price for others with a rubbish atmosphere to boot. Best avoided.

Very nice place! Been to Wroclaw quite a few times this year and always go here. Very nice staff and you always meet interesting english speaking people.

I may not be Irish, but for me, this place is a decent Irish-inspired bar.
Philip o Byrne from Ireland Reply
Not an Irish Bar. just a Polish bar that serves Guinness with a few Irish pictures on the wall. Painting a pub green with a Guinness sign outside does not make it an Irish bar. No Irish Tv channels so no good if you want to watch a GAA match.Waiter was veryfriendly. No complaints there.
Eleanor from Ireland Reply
It is a big grimey, but I think some expats are just in love with this place. I can't really imagine why, but I guess it's a good place to dream about home...
John D from United Kingdom Reply
Not a good place. Avoid! There's plenty better places in Wrocław for beer. The service is indifferent towards the patrons, poor in fact. I guess that the staff has changed since other reviews have been written, as they're not lookers at all. That's by the by though. I think it's the worst Irish pub I know, and for the games AVOID this place and go to Sports Bar.
Ian from United Kingdom Reply
Hmmm a bit hit and miss, this place. The beer is alright (there are better places for beer in Wrocław though) though somewhat pricey. The clientele can be OK, though you get the odd mouthy group. The worst is the service: they can disappear sometimes to smoke somewhere and you have to wait ages to get served. Not the politest of service (though that's typical in Poland) and beware if you want to watch football there, as while they may say they are showing a certain game, they may change their mind in the last minute so the staff can watch a game of their choice.

Hmmm,not too happy about this place at all i really have to say AVOID!!! AVOID,if your English you may be charged more for drinks as i was....and also was given very wrong change too on two seperate occasions,when i complained to the manager he was not at all interested...so if you dont want to get ripped off DONT GO THERE!!!!

Instinctively I would sooner step on an upturned plug whilst gargling cod liver oil than venture into any supposedly authentic Brit bar, for fear of being surrounded by the very sort of gurning, booze-addled xenophobes who plague the streets of Blighty in ever increasing numbers to ever diminishing returns. Thankfully this joint appears to have more or less avoided any influx of said Neanderthals. Which leaves the more civilised patrons free to enjoy a particularly agreeable bar in relative peace. The dark green décor and furnishings are classy, the bar staff are unerringly friendly, there is plenty on offer to quaff and the menu is positively delectable. And scarcely a pot belly or unseemly leisure trouser in sight.
AGFK from United Kingdom Reply
Neither a fenian lover or hater, merely a good judge of bars hither and thither, I see this as a fine venue. Prop the bar, take a drink, light up a JPS and relax. Eye candy on one side of the bar, convivial chat on t'other. What more could a man on a mission want! See you in a month or so.
Mr. T from United Kingdom Reply
Bit of a typical Irish pub abroad. Nothing special but if you want to meet some expats (not sure why you would) then go for your life

Best Spot in Wroclaw with Bar staff who will keep the beer flowing as long as you want! Thanks Guys!
Matt from United Kingdom Reply
Irish pubs are generally crap IMO (as is MacDonalds) but Guinness is pretty good - 3 completely diffeent style bars on each floor, good mix of locals and expats and decent live gigs. Only downside is the staff who give the pubs a clique feel but Polish service is usually unfriendly anyway, bordering on hostile, so dont let that put you off.. A pretty stupid remark frmn the American guy - depending on who you ask a Fenian is an Irish soldier, a supporter of Irish independence duriung The Troubles, a Catholic (not true) or a Celtic supporter.
