Montreal's most authentic Irish pubs

Although shamrocks and leprechauns aren’t the first things that come to mind when you think of Montreal, the Irish community actually does have a long history here. And lucky for us, this history continues at several outstanding Irish bars where we can enjoy a proper Guinness, some of the finest Irish whiskey, and a thoroughly satisfying Irish meal. Without further ado, here are some of the top Irish bars in the city.

Irish Embassy Pub & Grill

1234 rue Bishop, Montréal, QC H3G 2E3

Located in the heart of downtown, The Irish Embassy (it’s a pub, not an actual embassy!) offers a mixture of traditional Canadian and Irish cuisine. The building dates back to 1885, and you can enjoy a great beer in this typical decor or even on the terrace with a beautiful view of the garden.

Hurley's Irish Pub

Mckibbin's Irish Pub
