Irish Pubs in Toronto

St. Patrick’s Day comes but once a year but the Irish found a way around that. By sprinkling the planet with Irish pubs they made every day St. Patty’s Day in cities all over the world. Toronto is luckier than most with more Irish pubs than you can count on both hands.

Irish Embassy Pub & Grill

1
49 Yonge St, Toronto, ON M5E 1J1

The vaulted ceiling gives it away as a heritage bank building. Now it’s the after-work stopover of choice for the downtown banking crowd. The entrance is so close to the street you can almost stumble in by mistake (wink-wink, nudge-nudge) and your freshly-drawn pint is waiting after a long day

O'Brien PJ The City Pub

2
39 Colborne St, Toronto, ON M5E 1E3

The Quinn family was bent on providing customers with the most authentic Irish experience in the city and there’s ample evidence they’ve succeeded. From the gleaming, brass-topped bar and extensive list of single-malt whiskies to the creative and varied menu this is a replica worthy of the auld sod.

Stout Irish Pub

3
221 Carlton St, Toronto, ON M5A 2L2

Cabbagetown residents can barely remember life before Stout arrived a few years ago. Simply put, it completes them. This is a local mecca for craft beer lovers with an eye-popping list of draughts and bottles from across Canada and abroad. The creative kitchen re-invents classic pub favourites.

Overdraught Irish Pub

4
156 Front St W, Toronto, ON M5J 2L6

Before, after or even during, the game, pre or post-theatre, the Overdraught wants to be your go-to destination in the Entertainment District. Staff will pour you an Irish blend like a Black & Tan or something from the list of single malts. You’re steps from major attractions in the downtown core.

Brazen Head Irish Pub

5
165 Liberty St, Toronto, ON M6K 3G3

Trendy Liberty Village has its own homage to Gaelic charm, named after the oldest pub in Ireland. Kilted waitresses tend to raucous TFC fans glued to the big screen; bring a crowd and get a group discount. The outdoor patio offers a postcard view of the city skyline.

Foggy Dew Irish Alehouse and Pub

6
803 King St W, Toronto, ON M5V 1N4

The high ceilings, dark wooden floors and old tavern ambience instantly put you at ease. The King West crowd gathers around the widescreen to watch the Leafs; there’s seating for groups and nooks and crannies for intimate tête-à-têtes. Foggy Dew uses Kilkenny Cream Ale in its fish-and-chip batter.

Good things come in small packages. That's especially true when you consider how much flavour can be packed into that classic pub-food favourite: the chicken wing. Whether you like 'em hot and spicy or sweet and tangy, chicken wings deliver big taste in a compact form. When you're craving a pile of yummy, sticky, chicken goodness, here's where you'll find it in Victoria.
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.
