Celebrate St. Patrick's Day at these Irish pubs in Edmonton

Celebrate St. Patrick's Day with the luck of the Irish this year! These local pubs are great little hang out spots – they serve up some simple but tasty food and, more importantly, have a great selection of beers and drinks. So who needs the Blarney Stone to bless you with the gift of gab, when Guinness is always on tap?

Duggan's Boundary

9013 88 Ave Nw, Edmonton, AB T6C 1L9

Formerly Devaney’s Pub, the current owners changed the name to Duggan’s Boundary back in 2008. Now named after a Strathcona local pioneer, J.J. Duggan, this pub remains a popular hangout for neighbourhood folk. There’s always something fun going on here, especially for St. Paddy’s Day. Plus, if the weather is nice, you can enjoy their beautiful patio.

Urban Tavern

11606 Jasper Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T5K 0N2

Located downtown on Jasper Avenue, this Irish pub is popular with all ages. They host an East coast lobster bake the first Thursday of every month, with live entertainment. They also do up some great grub, such as Guinness beef pot pie, limerick wings, Irish potato nachos and, of course, Gaelic greens and a fair selection of ales and lagers to suit your meal. Plus, on Tuesdays, fish and chips are only $7.25.

Kelly's Pub

10156 104 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5J 1A7

Cozy and quaint, with fun staff and great patrons. What more could you ask for from your neighbourhood Irish pub? Food and drinks. Check. Try your luck with “Kelly’s Luck,” their house specialty drink made with Jameson’s Irish Whiskey, banana liqueur, orange juice and ginger ale. They also have drink specials every day of the week, with happy hour running Monday to Friday, 3 p.m. till 7 p.m.

O'Mailles Pub

104-398 St Albert Trail, St Albert, AB T8N 5J9

A little ways outside the core, this little pub is worth the drive to St. Albert. With two pool tables, a dart board and great events and fundraisers, this is a great place to have a few libations with your friends. They often have live music, and they tend to go all-out for St. Paddy's day, with entertainment, dancing and a special buffet.

O'Byrne's Irish Pub

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.

Nachos may have been invented in Mexico, but they are enthusiastically embraced in Quebec City. Locals can't get enough! Whether you share them with a friend or keep them all to yourself, you can satisfy a case of the munchies with the delicious nachos available at these great city spots.
Tired of the same old same old? Switch it up a little and go on the hunt for a fabulous hot dog. This American street food is no longer just for ball parks and barbecues. Throughout Quebec City you'll find everything from the most basic steamed dog to gourmet hot dogs you never would have imagined.
