Description: Welcome to the Irish Times Pub, where excellent design and authenticity are at the heart of downtown Victoria's BEST IRISH 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 a 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.

The service and the restaurant is great. The conception is very interesting. The restaurant is separated on small rooms that make the environment cozy and private. No matter how busy they are you always have privacy.

We wandered into this pub, on a rainy day, to find a friendly staff and welcoming fire. We ordered the Fat Tug IPA which was wonderful. Since it was Wednesday, the special was a pint and pizza so we ordered the Mediterranean pizza which was the best pizza I have ever had. Who would have imagined this in an Irish Pub in Victoria, BC? It was a delicious thin, crispy crust with sun dried tomato pesto, goat cheese, kalamata olives, artichoke hearts, red onions, red bell peppers and fresh basil. The flavors blended perfectly. It was outstanding.

I recently went to this pub after spending a month long Holiday in Ireland. It compares very well with food selection, beers & ales and of course the "Trad" music. The sports bar aspect is also very authentic as the Irish are mad about their Sports, Guiness and Traditional music not necessarily in that order.
This place in Victoria is a great replica. All they need is children running around up until 6PM but I don't think that's allowed in BC.
Too bad really!!!

Awesome daily deals, super friendly staff, great ambience set in a historic building. Traditional Celtic music starts 8:30 in the evening.
