Wonderful bartenders, good food and beer selection. This place is right across the street from the Hotel Victoria where I stayed and it was convenient for a bite and a brew.

I have been to the Irish Embassy quite a few times over the years while visiting Toronto. Generally it is always for drinks, however this last trip, we decided to go for lunch. The lunch menu was tiny with limited choices, and both of us were less than impressed with our meals. The service was great as always, we just... More

Standard Irish Pub Grub. Tasty, with big portions. Well trained staff. Right on Yonge St. Been there a few times after work and was never disappointed.

The atmosphere in the pub was warm, friendly and upbeat. There was a football game on the televisions with... More
