Description: Yes, Guinness may have been born in Ireland, but its Irish spirit is alive and well at Dubh Linn Gate Pub. Here you'll find plenty of charming people eager to meet you, some spirited live music, 25 draught taps pouring deliciously fresh Imperial pints, and authentic Irish fare to fill the belly and soothe the soul. It's a lovely day for a Guinness after all.

“Fab!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2012

We only stopped here for an afternoon drink on our day off from the slopes but it was lovely. Perfect location right at the bottom of Blackcomb gondola so lots of people watching to be done! We sat outside next to the firepit which was most welcome! Very friendly staff and even though the beer is a little pricey it was certainly worth a visit! Would have liked to have gone back for the evening to see what the nightlife is life but we were just too exhausted! Great pub - a must visit.

“Winter Vacation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2012

Great place to start and end a ski trip! Awesome food, beer and atmosphere. Almost feels as if we were in Dublin, Ireland! Only bummer was they were out of Irish Mist - we asked about it when we arrived (3/27/12) and we decided to make it our last stop on the way out on 4/2/12 since I had asked about it before, figured we should at least go in for a taste of it. Well, after a busy weekend, guess they were all out. Would go there in a heartbeat again when we visit Whistler again.

“Good food, service and entertainment.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2012

The salads are good and the Steak and Guinness Pie is just yummy, especially after a big day of Skiing. The band Ruckus Deluxe played, they were just great! We've already eaten here twice this week. It's a nice all round experience.

“Waited an hour for our food and left...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

We stopped by the Dubh Linn Gate for breakfast at 8:30 a.m. on one of the busiest ski days in February (Sunday of US President's holiday weekend.) The restaurant was less than half full. We waited 20 minutes to order and then waited another 40 minutes for our food to arrive. After checking in with the wait staff several times, we finally gave up and left when our food still hadn't arrived... The kitchen seem disorganized as tables around us were served and finished in the time we waited.

“A real Irish Bar transplanted to Whistler Village”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2012

I always seem to eat here once every time I visit Whistler. The food is genuine pub grub; shepherds pie (my usual choice), mashers and bangers, and a Guinness steak pie that will certainly fill you up. For your liquid refreshments a variety of Irish beers, whiskeys, as well as local brews. Highly recommend this establishment.
