Irish Embassy Pub & Grill

Guest Information

A warm Irish welcome to you as we toast the very best of the Emerald Isle. The Irish Embassy Pub & Grill is inspired by a centuries-old tradition of providing a level of hospitality unique to only the most authentic of Irish pubs and restaurants.

Located in Toronto’s Financial District, the Irish Embassy will both inspire and enthrall guests at your next special event within the breathtaking setting of an architectural and historic heritage site – one of Toronto’s first banks. The marble floors, rich mahogany walls and soaring cathedral ceilings of the Embassy Room and Dublin Lounge are spectacular, yet inviting and familiar; a place where cead mile failte (“one-hundred thousand welcomes!”) call out to make you feel at home the moment you and your guests walk through our doors.

We look forward to the opportunity to exceed your expectations.
