This is our third visit to the Irish Embassy. We always stop in for a drink before a concert or Jays game. We were there last Sunday after the Jays game and it was near our hotel. Great drink selection, great atmosphere and great service!...More

This is a very good place for a casual, comfortable lunch if you are in downtown Toronto. Great with a client, work associate, friend or anyone that likes a great pub atmosphere. Choose from a wide variety of beers or any spirit for that matter....More

It was nice to stop and rest here. Irish pubs are always good for meeting new people and have a friendly atmosphere. I had hendrick's gin and tonic. The bartenders were happy and kind.

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of

The Irish Embassy takes great pride in its dedication to a centuries-old tradition of hospitality unique to the Emerald Isle. This magnificently restored heritage site - one of Toronto's first banks - is now home to an enchanting Old World ambiance and standard of personal service and cuisine echoing a commitment to excellence without rival. Conveniently located in the heart of Toronto's financial district, the Irish Embassy is extraordinarily flexible in its multi-purpose design. Not only a warm and inviting setting for the after-work crowd and personal dining, it is recognized as one of downtown's most dynamic venues for upscale cocktail receptions, social celebrations and corporate gatherings.
