Montreal loves an excuse to throw a party no matter what the forecast says about the weather. As the home of Canada’s oldest St. Patrick’s Day parade in Canada held every year since 1824, this day is a big one for locals! Here are the top spots to enjoy a pint with friends and revel in typical Irish festivities at one of Montreal’s iconic pubs.
This Celtic pub is known for its traditional pub ambience, impressive food selection, epic live music and rowdy quiz nights. Ye Olde Orchard opened its first spot on Monkland back in 1996, and now has locations Downtown, the Plateau, Pointe-Claire, Saint-Sauveur and Chateauguay. Each location has its own set of events for the big day, so pop on by for a Jameson and enjoy the festivities!
While this mile end haunt may draw influence from British pubs, it’s still a contender in our eyes. With an excellent selection of beer and whiskeys along with the largest selection of gin in Quebec, it’s a perfect spot for anyone looking to celebrate St. Paddy’s in style. Just a 15-minute bus ride from Ateliers Castelnau, you’ll be able to bar hop all the way home!
Over the decades Montreal’s oldest Irish pub has celebrated many St. Patrick’s Days. Located in the heart of downtown, patrons will be close to the parade festivities and nearby joints also celebrating. After enjoying some delicious comfort food favourites alongside a beer or scotch, you’ll be good for another pint down the road.
Burgundy Lion is a perfect place to go if you’d rather forgo the craziness of the downtown core. Notorious for their weekend brunch menu, whisky and traditional British pub atmosphere, it’s perfect for those who want to celebrate, but not get too wild.
If you’re looking for live music and a packed house, NDG’s Honey Martin bar is the place for you. The Guinness will be flowing and the party will be rockin’ into the wee hours of the morning, get ready for a fun evening of drinks and fun. Luckily for you, this Irish pub is just a five-minute cab ride from Le Beaumont condos.
Last but not least, Hurley’s Irish Pub, located in the heart of downtown is a classic pub that’s a great choice for those bar-hopping downtown or want to grab a pint after the parade. Serving both pub food, pints and whiskey, this Cresent street bar is a great place to start off or cap off your St. Patrick’s Day festivities.
