Irish Embassy Pub & Grill

Our Story

The pubs and restaurants under the Irish Embassy Hospitality Group banner are inspired by a legacy of Irish hospitality that traces its roots back four generations to Ireland. Our success is found in a passionate desire to ensure that each guest is well cared for. The family of expert staff that has grown to support us here in Canada has also embraced this passion.

The touchstone from which we measure our service and hospitality comes from the Quinn family matriarch and patriarch, Anne and Pat Quinn Sr. When the family emigrated to Canada, it was only naturally that the Quinns transplant from their native land an entirely authentic Irish public house—meticulously faithful in style, atmosphere, quality and value.

With over 100 years of history in the hospitality industry the Quinn family, supported by a wider family of dedicated managers, bartenders, hosts, wait staff, cooks and others, has successfully expanded operations to include the Irish Embassy Pub & Grill (in downtown Toronto and Montreal) and sister establishment, P.J. O’Brien Irish Pub & Restaurant. We invite you to sample our congenial atmosphere, fine fare, fresh draught and ample selection of wines and spirits. Decide for yourself if we truly are Ambassadors of Irish Hospitality.
