Lovely little Irish pub with a welcoming staff. The Manager has gone to great lengths to adhere to the new covid requirements in separation of tables with tastefully etched hanging plexiglas partitions. The staff keep the bar immaculate. The food is always good but I...have to say the Pizza is absolutely the best on Denman Street. The chef uses the freshest ingredients. The service is always friendly and prompt with a touch of Irish humour. The beer selection is very good with Guinness on tap and the Shamrock Alley also has the Irish Cider “Magners”on tap. I highly recommend stopping in for a pint and some lunch or dinner.More

Stopped here for a quick drink, the happy hour deals and staff are more than enough reason to come here alone. We saw the chef (yasser) put up freshly made Yorkshire puddings, we couldn't help ourself we ordered this of the appetiser menu and it...was nothing but amazing. I will shout about this place for a while. And when we can we will be back! Keep doing what your doing guys!!! 2 very happy ladies 😊More

Looking for a nice pub after a great walk through Stanley Park? Right near the. corner of Davie and Denman is the fun Shamrock Alley. Serving up plenty of beers, various food items and a small pub atmosphere the Irish Alley is a great way...to spend a couple of hours after a long walk. It is fun and a great location.More

Great location right at an entry point to Stanley Park. The all day Irish Breakfast consisted of eggs, black & white pudding, sausages, bacon, grilled tomato, toast & beans. Beans were a bit weird, maybe curried beans & I didn’t like the sausage but that’s...just my taste. Service was fast & friendly. Food all cooked to order, lots of it. Pricey but that’s Vancouver.More

I had wanted something walking distance from the hotel where we were staying and this was within a block - great choice! We stopped by late afternoon on a Monday. They had some great specials and a hearty assortment of 'real pub food'. The customers...seemed a mix of the young hipsters in the area and us older folks - all of whom appreciated a good whiskey or ale recommendation. The bartender (owner?) seemed to be always in two or three places at once, making sure all tables were happy and served. His accent I'm assuming was Irish and just added to the ambiance. Very comfortable pub! We had the appetizer platter which was perfect for the two of us - a large handful of yam fries, chicken wings, onion rings, crisp celery & carrot sticks and a variety of dips. We got to watch a bit of our (hockey) game and the sunset at the same time. A lovely evening!More
