Visited here for a quick drink on the evening we arrived. There's a good selection of beers and some interesting Guiness cartoons on the wall. They do live music though we didn't experience it. Both French and English spoken.

Irish style as the name indicates. Numerous TV screens and therefore also recommended as a sportsbar. Le Vieux Dublin also offers "happy hours" with cheaper beers. A nice location for a beer, allowing also to get reasonable food, especially burgers, but also fish and chips are recommended. A location worth to remember. I've been here every time at least once,... More

Tres Bien! We had a great time. The live music was nice. Our bartender, Mike, I was witty and quick with a drink. This is a must visit.

We stopped here for a burger while walking around this area, as we wanted to try their award-winning burgers (some say they’re the best in town). Also called “Old Dublin” it has two bars and a very impressive list of imported and domestic beers on tap. They also carry a huge list of Scotches. The food here is good and... More

Not a bad Irish pub! Maybe a dozen of draft beers and 3 stouts among them. Wood tables and chairs, screens for football matches, a lot of empty whiskey bottles along the walls.

We went here for our anniversary while in Montreal. They have great burgers and some very good brews. This place has a nice atmosphere, we really enjoyed it. Great service as well.

I've been going to this Pub since 1987. Look for the the two priciest burgers on the menu. They are well worth the price in terms of food quality and satisfaction. The pub also serves food other than burgers. Make a visit and you'll be surprised by exactly what other food offerings are on the menu!

My takeaway of our trip to Montreal and Ottawa are that Canadians love their Irish pubs. They are everywhere. Like most pubs, this has the traditional homely corner pub feel. You'll find the typical selection of Guinness, Harp, Bass, et al. The menu is rife with common pub fare, more notably its extensive list of burgers. I thought the beef... More

Had the best time here! Fun, talkative bartenders, great music - if we lived in the area, it would be a regular stop.

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighborhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
