Description: The Aulde Dubliner & Pour House is a 2-storey bar located in the historical Byward market. It boasts genuine Irish cuisine while touching on some Canadian standards. The Dubliner's bar has been shipped straight from Ireland and assembled by Irish workers to preserve the authenticity of the bar. Some may argue that it has the best Guinness in town. The upstairs portion has a superior vantage point for viewing the market's hustle and bustle, the outdoor mezzanine is a very popular for this reason. Guests can enjoy live music on the weekends starting at 6:30 pm.

“Great Summertime Fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

My family and I love stopping into the Aulde Dubliner during a warm summer day, sit on the deck with a pitcher of Keith's Red and peoplewatch. The food is pretty good, but the atmosphere and peoplewatching is better! This is a fun hangout and usually gets pretty crowded in the summer. One of our favorite spots when we're in town and in Byward Market.

“Typical Ottawa corporate faux Irish pub”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

Average food, good service, great location.
I warn you, the horrible commercial faux Irish crap music is blasted all day long. Sort of fun on St Paddy's, but year around, yech.

“Heavy traffic/touristy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2012

It's a nice pub with an awesome patio but it is rife with tourists year-round. For that reason locals don't hang out here.

“Drinks one - Food zero”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

I have tried this place for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The food is awful. I would recommend this place only for the patio and drinks. Even the appetizers weren't good. The prices are affordable, especially during happy hour.
