This "Irish Pub" does indeed exist. But even though it has the appearance of an Irish Pub it is run by people (not Irish, for sure) that don't really know much about the culture behind it. To give you an example: I went there and asked if they would show Rugby World Cup '07 games there. They didn`t even know it was happening. Nor did they have Sky Sports or such... So if you are looking for a real Irish Pub in Berlin, this is not the place to go.

Hi Floho, there's more to Ireland than watching sports on the TV, some good live music and a friendly atmosphere is just about all it takes. Do you know the Harp is the national symbol of Ireland? There are plenty of Irish pubs in Berlin with (mostly English) sports on TV and (mostly English) people cheering at the people on the TV who can't actually hear them. If this pub has no sports I'd say it could be worth a visit. take it easy, Martin

This is a nice bar to drink in, and it's a great laugh on Paddy's night. But, in the words of the German owner herself, it is more an "international" bar than an Irish bar: they have Primera but no (British) Sky Sports, and definitely no RTÉ. The staff are very friendly, though, the Guinness isn't as exorbitant as elsewhere, and they'll stay open (drinking with you) pretty much forever. Go elsewhere for sport, come here for some túra lúra.
