Description: An authentic Irish pub experience here in Niagara on the Lake. In 2007 our founder Trevor Smyth built a pub to rival any on the emerald isle. Our focus is on using fresh quality ingredients in large portions. We will do anything to please our guest. Service is a point of pride at this pub. We deeply appreciate when guests choose us and want them to have an excellent time. We welcome customers as if they are guests in our home.

“Great entertainment makes for a good time on the weekend.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

Our last time at the pub "Ceol Cara" got everyone clapping and singing and having a good time. If you like the Irish, Scottish, Celtic style of music the Irish Harp Pub does a great job bringing in talented musicians. Though the food is very good you might want to call ahead if you have specific dietary needs.

“Great Fish & Chips...most of the rest Average”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2012

Been here a few times.

Yes, fish & chips great. But "gourmet pub" is stretching it a bit, I'm afraid. Hit and miss with the rest of the food. Wings soggy and dreadful (well unless you like that style).

Bar staff great, service staff spotty.

Nice selection on tap; shockingly poor wine selection...even for a pub.

But all in all a decent pub when you want something simple and downgrade from the posh restaurants around town.
