“Not really an Irish Pub...but OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2011

One thing that turned me off was this weird stench when walking in. The traditional pub fare was not quite all there. Shepard's pie with ground beef? It's average. Friendly staff.

“My favourite pub in Calgary”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2011

I have visited Limerick's on numerous occasions, and I have never had a problem with the service or the food. They have tons of places to sit, so I've never had to wait for a table. The food is delicious; especially the potato skins and pulled pork sandwich. Drinks are not watered down and they have an excellent selection of beers on tap. Be sure and try the ice cream cake.

“Very typical pub food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2011

Nothing special about this place. Very noisy. Food ok but nothing to write home about ! I would just as soon go to Dixon's near home. Same menu .

“Great place for a beer!”

Older building, two story with a couple nice patioes. Lots of dark wood inside and very kossy.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2008

It was a rowdy crowd (in a good way). Always noisy, so not the best place for a calm conversation. The food was excellent and the service was good. A friend of mine commented that the Guinness didn't have the official imprint on the foam though.
