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.

We popped into The Irish Heather a couple weeks back and had a fantastic experience. Our server, Dionne, was extremely knowledgeable on all things scotch, had an outgoing personality, great accent and simply made our night! We will be back for another night of great...More

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
history a more lively presence here than anywhere
else. Having been originally founded around a popular
worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of
