Description: Yes, Guinness may have been born in Ireland, but its Irish spirit is alive and well at Dubh Linn Gate Pub. Here you'll find plenty of charming people eager to meet you, some spirited live music, 25 draught taps pouring deliciously fresh Imperial pints, and authentic Irish fare to fill the belly and soothe the soul. It's a lovely day for a Guinness after all.

Have been in the Dubh Linn Gate numerous times over the years, and it pretty much stays the same. It's pretty much like Irish pubs the world over as far as decor goes. Reasonable selection of beers including microbrews, but beer is quite expensive. Food is okay, couldn't really give it more. Service generally pretty good. Live music twice a day, at Apres time, and at 8pm, and the bands tend to be good, playing mostly folk music. Pretty busy most of the time - eclectic crowd but there are generally a lot of Brits with a not-great imagination - there are better bars!

Cheers for sharing your thoughts. We're happy you're excited about our selection of beer and commitment to showcase the fantastic talents of Pacific Northwest craft brewers.

We wanted to let you know that in 1997 we commissioned Irish wood workers in Dublin to handcraft this entire pub to be shipped over and built at this location and that's why is best reflects the look and feel of a traditional Irish pub from Eire.

With 25 draughts taps, a selection of over 40 whiskies, traditional Irish pub fare, live music twice daily 7 days a week and an unbeatable location with an authentic, handcrafted pub we'd be crazy not to challenge you in naming a better like-venue in town that provide this kind of all-round value!

Visited here on recommendation for a meal and drinks in the evening. The place was busy and a live band were playing a selection of Irish music, with a couple of Scottsh songs for good measure!!

Food was Ok, Guinness ok too. Service was reasonable and the overall experience was Ok. Think it would probably be a better experience had there been a big group and not just a couple.

Had a good dinner at Dubh Linn on a busy Thursday night. We decided to go because we got twenty percent off food after ziplining. Beer selection is probably the best draft selection I saw in whistler. Overall, service was good enough, the restaurant was understaffed given the number of patrons. Food came promptly without incident, and all of it tasted good. The dishes were presented well, and portion size was more than adequate.

Nice Irish pub with good beer and food! Staff was very helpful and pleasant....only negative would be the prices but that was true for about every restaurant in Whistler.
