O'Byrne's Irish Pubopen10616 82 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T6E 2A7
This is a chill spot to hang out and enjoy a few beers. It’s located on Whyte Avenue, so you can enjoy a nice meal out with your ladies before heading over to O’Byrne’s for some drinks and dancing. The dance floor is small but the music is generally pretty good and people do dance here – at least on weekends.
The green paint job and Public House in Gaelic script over the front door mean O’Byrne’s is hard to mistake for anything but an Irish pub. Inside, the friendly, festive vibe and the great selection of Irish whiskeys confirm its Emerald Isle identity. They’ve got Blackbush and Bushmills to Powers and Paddy. While you’re here, don’t miss the delicious fish ‘n’ chips.
This is Edmonton’s oldest Irish pub, established in 1998. Located right smack in the middle of Whyte Avenue, every Tuesday night is Guinness Celtic Jam where, you guessed it, Celtic music is played. You can also customize your Guinness by mixing it with a number of things like orange juice (called a wasp sting) or with Smithwicks (called a black and tan). On St. Patrick's Day, the doors open at 9:45 a.m., with a live Celtic jam and Irish dancers from 12 p.m. till 3 p.m., green beer and more.
