Pub Karaka (Irish Pub), Dubrovnik
Nothing really exciting, but the place for you if Ale, Stout and football on the telly are your thing. Do not expect anything Irish but a nice atmosphere and a lot of British tourists. That said, it can become quite full when there is an attractive match on the screen. A pint of Guinness was 45 Kuna in 2013. Some pub snacks like sandwiches are available here. Occasional live music can be seen here as well.
Karaka is the other of the two Irish pubs in Dubrovnik old town. In addition to Guinness and Kikenny, Karaka serves some Croatian and German(!) beers on tap. Tap beers are around 15-25 kunas (2-4 euros) per pint.
The pub shows all major sporting events (Sky Sport and Setanta Sport) + has some Irish music evenings, especially during the high season (July-August).
Karaka is open from 10 to 24 every day. Happy hour from 15 to 18.
It may seem strange that there is an Irish pub in Dubrovnik, but where else would all of the English, Irish and American tourists drink? Located in the old town, Pub Karaka draws mostly tourists. Irish and Croatia beers are served, as well as the other European favorites such as Heineken and Amstel.
There is an Irish pub just off of Stradun in the Old Town that supposedly is a great spot during the tourist season. In February, it's pretty dead, but that gave me a chance to sit and talk with the Croatian bartenders and learn some things about local affairs. I had a pint for 24kn (about 4 USD) and hung out awhile talking sports, girls and travel with these guys. Inside, it definitely has that authentic Irish feel (except for the lack of customers!!). The guys told me that between June and August, it's standing room only and most of the people inside are actually tourists from Ireland!
Visit this bar to discover everything you came to eastern europe to escape. Similar in nature to the dentist's as no enjoyment is experienced until departure and most of the stay is painful. Packed with over-enthusiastic irish wannabes no immersion in croatian culture is ensured. A definate must for middle aged italian gentlemen looking for love, beer-goggled irish girls guaranteed...
Dress Code: perhaps something of the green variety
