Thank you for the great attentive and speedy service and arranging the quiet nook we asked for. Our 6 year old granddaughter thought this was all very ‘deluxe’. We can’t disagree.

I arranged for a group of 15 for lunch. The booking on line was very easy and the restaurant very accommodating in regard to seating arrangements and gratuities. The service was excellent and everyone of the group commented on how much they enjoyed the food they ordered.

Server Megan was over the top! If I was still working I would hire her in an instant in my Law Office. So efficient, knowledgable & personable. Advised Manager Chris of these comments. Too bad she is a teacher because you could use her full time!

The pub has atmosphere on steroids, great food and service plus live music. It looked and felt like the English pubs we've enjoyed. We hadn't been before and will definitely be returning.

I had celebrated my 50th Birthday at Irish Times this weekend and it was an amazing success! We had over seventy guests throughout the evening and it went very smooth. From start to finish with the organization of the time and space, the food, the logistics and service was all exceptional. The Management Team, Demian, Chris and Parker, were all on board and Lauren, our head server, with the bartenders, handled the volume very well. It was a very memorable evening and Irish Times helped make that happen. Steve

We loved that our server put on the fireplace in the cozy Snug. Such a lovely quiet atmosphere in there away from the bustle of the main seating areas. My friend enjoyed the Seafood Chowder although she found it a bit too salty. My "Thursday lunch special" (roasted turkey club sandwich with cup of butternut squash on the side) was delicious. I couldn't eat the whole sandwich so brought home half. I had found the sourdough bread too thick, so at home I removed the filling and substituted a thinner Country Grain bread.

Great Atmosphere with live music. Jessica provided great service, addressing one problem with the corned beef and cabbage. The dish came from the kitchen with very little cabbage. Jessica brought a small dish with more cabbage to me. Jessica asked us if we wanted drinks as soon as we were seated. When I made the reservation I requested a table with good view of the musicians. The table given to us had a very good view 25 feet from the stage. I really appreciated the pub granti g my request. We will return to Irish times on our next visit from Seattle.

Irish Times is located downtown, in historic Bastian Square.

A toast to Victoria’s best whiskey bars

A toast to Victoria’s best whiskey bars

Despite being unapologetically Irish, this pub has one of the largest Scotch whiskey menus in Victoria. It’s so big that they’ve divvied it up into regions, so you can embark on a Scotch whiskey tour without ever getting on a plane. If you're in the mood for something else, Irish Times has a wide selection of American, Indian and, of course, Irish whiskeys as well.

The messiest, juiciest burgers in Victoria

The messiest, juiciest burgers in Victoria

Situated in the heart of downtown in historic Bastion Square, the Irish Times strives to be the most authentic Irish pub in Victoria. They have live Celtic music seven nights a week, they serve traditional Irish fare, and it’s one of only three places in town you can get imported Irish stout. Grab yourself a Guinness, pair it with their unbelievable Lamb Burger, and sing along with one of their featured bands. A night here is like taking a trip to Ireland without the pricey airfare.
