This place is best described by over using the word beautiful. Beautiful building on the outside, complemented by a truly beautiful interior. All of the waitresses looked beautiful in their short tartan skirts and company logged tees. The menu was beautiful with page after page of my favorite things to eat. We decided to try multiple appetizers since they all... More

Dropped in on the 18th as we were walking Victoria. Had beers on the patio as we had eaten at Red Fish Blue Fish. We found it to be a nice patis with good staff.

We had heard the food was great, and was very much looking forward to trying it. There was no line ahead of us, and it was relatively slow, as it was mid-afternoon during the work week. I let the hostess know there were two of us, she told us to follow her outside (where the patio was closed due to... More

The atmosphere is very relaxed, exactly what you would expect from an Irish pub. The food is a little better than average, but the beer is good, the waitresses are good looking and attentive. The music the night I was there was Black Angus and they were very good.

Great selection of food and drinks. The staff is very attentive not to mention great looking! I've had a lot of pizza but the forest mushroom one I had here raised the bar. Well done Damien. FUN place.

I had visited this pub about 10 years ago and had such a great experience so I decided while visiting Victoria this month that I would take a group of 9 to enjoy the place. Well this trip was a total bust. We ordered a few appetizers and I ordered the chicken curry. The appetizers came out and were pretty... More

I was impressed by there food, shepards pie with lamb and burger with brie was amazing. I recommend sitting outside with kidos- they can be amused by the noise outside.

Irish Times Pub is a great place to have a beer and enjoy some live music while in Victoria. They have a great selection of local craft beers and the entertainment on the nights we visited was excellent. I can't vouch for the food since we didn't have any, but we found the Irish Times Pub better than the Bard... More

Shared appetizers with my wife - delightful. Service was great, outdoor patio was perfect and their local beer selection was good. Well worth a visit in this small alley way.

Great place for a drink full of Irish atmosphere and the bar men wear kilts so a must for the ladies. Huge selection of beers and wines. Music at night and food on offer.

Thank Spike C

Welcome to the Irish Times Pub, where excellent design and authenticity are at the heart of downtown Victoria"s most exciting new pub!

Located at 1200 Government Street, the Irish Times Pub is home to 190 seats over two floors with 80 seats available on our patios, opening onto both Government Street and historic Bastion Square.

Our concept goes far beyond mere architecture though. The Irish Times opened with everything it takes to make a pub successfully Irish, including authentic Live Irish music, 7 nights each week.

The tradition of Ireland has also been extended to our menu, which has been developed on a philosophy of creating traditional Irish food and drink that is both contemporary and funky, showcasing Irish Pub Food as you would see in Ireland today.
