We try to resist Irish bars when on holiday but this was a genuinely lovely bar that was not tacky Irish. Great whisky collection-one of the largest I have seen outside Scotland. Friendly staff and the Guinness wasn't bad either

Located in the heart of Gastown just within sight of the Gassy Jack statue. Lot of the staff are Irish and they sell Tayto crisps! No TV which is not a bad thing. Genuinely feels like an Irish pub.

Gastown
A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and
stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of
being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many
plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell
the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's
