Try our 50 Tap Challenge- and once you drink your way across all 50 taps and you get each tap punched on your punch card, you’ll become a member of the now infamous IRISH DRINKING TEAM!

We regularly feature LIVE Irish and Celtic bands, and specialize in Post-reception wedding parties, catering, and making any event a great one!



In March of 2017 we celebrated our 20th anniversary in Ybor City, the longest running bar next to the famed “Castle” nightclub.

We pride ourselves on our warm hospitality, quality food & beverage offerings, and a friendly, upscale atmosphere.

Thank you again for supporting a local Mom & Pop Irish pub! We love each and every one of you who have made the James Joyce a great success! We look forward to serving you soon!

Ryan & Janice, Proprietors
