An authentic Irish pub experience here in Niagara on the Lake. In 2007 our founder Trevor Smyth built a pub to rival any on the emerald isle. Our focus is on using fresh quality ingredients in large portions. We will do anything to please our guest. Service is a point of pride at this pub. We deeply appreciate when guests choose us and want them to have an excellent time. We welcome customers as if they are guests in our home.

When you're tired of New American Bistros...

...this is the place! I had the fish & chips, my date had the lake Plaice--both were delicious, as were the beers on tap. The place was friendly, crowded, and a welcome getaway from the sometimes overly faux English-ness of Niagara-on-the-Lake (at least for a couple of visiting Americans).

Very nice Irish pub downtown off Queen street. Great food and staff. Reasonable prices and large whiskey menu. Lots of fun if you go on a nite when there is entertainment. We saw "the pubjugs" who were great. Typical tight quarters like most irish pubs.

Had the most amazing meal here at the Irish Harp. It reminded me so much of my Dad. The Irish Hot Pot was to die for! and with a "Flank" of Ireland's finest to wash it down there were sighs of satisfaction!

My husband and I visited Niagara on the Lake for the first time and decided to visit The Irish Harp Pub. The atmosphere was fantastic, with a live band playing, and the service was perfect. Our server, a gentleman from Nfld (sorry, I forget his name), was eager to ensure we had everything we needed to have a wonderful evening.... More

The Irish Harp pub is a great place to go for a cold pint and some good food. We went on a Friday night so they also had a traditional Irish band playing some old favorites. Really enjoyed this Pub and will be back !

I have to say I've never posted a review before, but there were a few things that really stood out for me here. Firstly, the Black & Tan Onion Rings are life changing. I wish we'd each gotten a serving instead of splitting one. And the service and atmosphere was great, authentic, and un-pretentious. The wait staff were there when... More

My wife and I visited this establishment on August 27, 2015. We were told that the best Fish and Chips in Niagara-on-the-Lake was at The Irish Harp Pub and we were not disappointed. There was a short wait time for a table as this is a very popular place. However the food at this place is worth the wait. The... More
