Irish Pubs and Restaurants in Prague

Irish pubs appeared in Prague in the early 1990s, shortly after the fall of communism. They were like a revelation on the Czech restaurant scene. At first, Irish bars and pubs were visited mostly by expatriates living and working in Prague. They eventually became popular with Czechs who are drawn to their friendly atmosphere, hearty food and good beer.
